Free patterns (available on

June 28, 2010

Since so many people arrive at this blog via this page, I wanted to share a new Ravelry promotion with you. If you like the washcloth patterns, you can currently get ALL TEN of the pay patterns for FIVE BUCKS – simply click this link to automatically add all ten pay patterns to your Ravelry cart with the fifteen dollar discount in place (the patterns are normally two bucks apiece). This discount can be applied even for those who have previously purchased some of the patterns! The coupon code “tenforfive” also works🙂 this promotion applies until the end of March 31, 2014.


Here are links to the free patterns I currently offer on Ravelry. Links will take you directly to the pattern page, though you will need to be or become a member to download them (and if you’re knitting and you’re not on Ravelry – um…  it’s time!)

Evie’s Dream Scarf – i knit this for a friend in San Luis Obispo. Mine was done in Manos Silk Blend and one skein gave me a four foot scarf after blocking. It is a lace stitch pattern with a simple border.

Hip To Be Square – this is one of the 12 patterns from a book I’ve been working on – it’s a beginner easy pattern comprised of a blend of square stitches. It’s been used quite frequently as a blanket square as well.

Cables’N’Lace – a lot of people have made their first cable foray with this sweet little square, one of the first I ever put up on Ravelry (it is also part of my upcoming book). A combination of easy lace and a simple, single-direction cable stitch, it looks far more complicated than it actually is. I still can’t convince my boyfriend’s aunt that it isn’t a work of art, just a washcloth and that she should use it.

Currently I’m working on a simple baby hat pattern that I thought perhaps I might offer for free – except that I am also broke as a bone right now, and not entirely sure how I’m going to pay the bills. Yay for being alone, broke, jobless and pregnant! We’ll see how this hat turns out – it appears i’m going to have to start all over again anyway, as i used a leftover half-skein and…  you guessed it, i ain’t got no

    I chose this website at random seeking some help to find a 30 decade old knitting pattern. I’ve enjoyed reading here and seems quite interesting to keep up with, but I’m not
    seeking membership just some help. I just do not know where to go or how to search.
    The pattern is a 1986 copyrighted by Susan Bates, Inc. (Patons Diana) Softly Cabled using
    size 17 circular needles. Please direct me. Blessings be with you and your new baby and
