K is for KNITTING BASICS

BEGINNER'S REVERSIBLE SCARF
Today, because so many readers have said they'd like to get into knitting, either again or because crochet is their thing, I've devoted the blog to BEGINNER FREE PATTERNS.  I've also put up a really good video on the basics, from casting on to knitting and purling, done in a fun but well taught fashion: 


Now that you've seen the video and practiced, I'm sure, you'll be able to make the free patterns that I've placed links for here on the post.  Please remember that I HAVE NOT PERSONALLY DONE THESE, they are done by great designers who are willing to share their patterns free, and I've been trying to collect some of the great ones here.  To search out patterns for anything and everything, join RAVELRY, it's FREE!

OK beginners, start knitting, gift giving time is fast approaching:   REMEMBER CLICK ON TITLES FOR LINKS TO THE FREE PATTERNS:

  2. Wow, those patterns don't look all that easy to me. Thanks for posting the video, Pam. One of these days I'll have to try relearning knitting.

  4. Oh, I am definitely going to give the baby afghan a try! I've been wanting to do an afghan ever since your first post on them, but this one is the most realistic. Thank you!

  5. I used to do a lot of knitting, but haven't done any for many years. Now - if I could find a way to knit and use the computer at the same time ...

    (I also just followed you - thought I'd already done that as I have you on my blog-roll ;-p)
