All Free Knitting

I’m officially a designer on!
I love designing knitwear patterns–every step of it. I love figuring out a unique, attractive design, puzzling out the construction of it, and even the endless test knits. It’s so gratifying to see projects that others have made with your patterns and I am always happy and humbled that someone dedicated time, effort, and yarn to one of my ideas. I’m looking forward to being able to bring patterns to even more knitters now, thanks Allfreeknitting!

You can see my designer page here! Check out some of my free knitting patterns below :)


Simple Slouch – FREE
This one works up very fast, without too much shaping, and is ideal for beginner knitters. The simple knit-purl design is patterned on every row, but the results are super pretty and textured. The yarn has quite a bit of drape for super slouch, and the hat is a forgiving fit. The medium sized hat should fit most adults.

Yarn: 200 yards of worsted weight yarn. (I’m using KnitPicks Comfy Worsted, Colour ‘whisker’)
Size: One size fits most

Easy and quick, these simple gloves have just enough pattern to keep you from going batty but are simple enough for dudes to rock without complaining. The waffle stitch pattern is super warm and can show off a variety of yarns. Instructions are given in the pattern for either knitting a basic pair or customizing them exactly to your recipients hands.

Yarn – 1 skein of Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label Aran or approximately 160-200 yards of worsted weight yarn

Size Guide:

Small – 7” wrist, Medium – 8” wrist,  Large – 9” wrist

Bev Cowl

Bev Cowl – FREE
Blogged here  |  Download on Ravelry

I had a few design goals for this cowl. I wanted it to be versatile – warm in the winter and loose for the transitional seasons. I wanted to fit flatteringly around the neck, and not feel like I was wearing a lot of fabric that draped in the front, but didn’t actually cover my chest. Finally, I wanted it to sit well under a jacket, without a ton of fabric bulking up the back of the neck.

The Bev has a clever little split in the back, that helps me achieve all of these things. It’s knit in the round for most for the cowl, and then back and forth for the last third or so. The sewn bind-off means that the bottom of the cowl is loose – to cover your chest and shape itself to your body so it’s not like wearing a tube. Best of all, on 5mm needles this baby can be worked up quickly!

Yarn: 2 skeins Tanis Fiber Arts Green or Orange Label. Samples shown in ‘Sunset’ and ‘Frost’ or approximately 400 yards of worsted weight yarn

Size: One size fits most

Man Slouch – FREE

This simple slouch/touque is a quick, mindless, easy knit for both guys and gals.

Because, let’s face it; guys are picky. It can’t be too detailed, in a girly colour or contain un-manly motifs. Here then, is a base pattern for a very simple hat that can be worn slouchy or not, and dressed up easily for the more adventurous. The simple pattern lends itself well to self striping or variagated yarns.

Yarn: 1 skein of Malabrigo Arroyo or 300 yards of any sport weight yarn

Size: One size fits most. Pattern is easily customized.


Lisa’s Shawl
Blogged here  |  Download on Ravelry  |  Craftsy Page here

This easy crochet shawl works up quickly (ah, the speed of crochet!) Simple alternating patterns of solid and openwork rows are accented by adding beads that are visible from both sides of the finished shawl. A tutorial for adding beads to your crochet is included in the pattern.

Yarn: 2 skeins of Tanis Fiber Arts Blue Label (sample shown in ‘Grape’) or 800 yards of sock weight yarn.

Size: One size fits most. Pattern is easily customized.


Bay of Fundy – FREE
Blogged here  |  Ravelry Project page here  |  Craftsy Page here

This scarf is pure luxury to wear – 2 skeins of the softest wool imaginable draped stylishly over your shoulders or wrapped up snug around your neck.

It’s called the Bay of Fundy scarf because it was inspired by the tides at the Bay, and because I knitted most of it while on vacation :) It’s a great travel knit because of the lightweight yarn, and mostly mindless nature of the pattern. The cabling is not complicated but produces a very dense fabric, so if you choose to change yarns make sure to use a needle that is one size larger than your yarn requires.

Yarn: 2 skeins of Tanis Fiber Arts Purple Label Cashmere or approximately 800 yards of sock weight yarn

Size: One size fits most. Pattern is easily customized.
