Best of Pinterest - Free Knitting Winter 2019
Here are ten winter finds I discovered on Pinterest that actually follow through to real, free knitting pattern links. Many of the legit Pinterest "free patterns" I find come from Ravelry, so I highly recommend any serious knitter create a free account.
The Chalice by Karen S. Lauger
BABY BLANKETS!!! Because I LOVE babies. I already have a couple of special lace blankets knit up and awaiting a potential future grandchild. 😂 But seriously, The Chalice by Karen S. Lauger is a must try. After all...there will always be babies in need of some snuggly comfort! 💕 I particularly like the way the color flows in Lykkefanten's version, as pictured.
Knitted Elf Slippers by Craft Foxes
Paulina Dress by Taiga Hilliard Designs

Do NOT tell Matt, but this little number has me half-tempted to try for number 5...just so I can see my baby wearing it. 😉😂 Ok, ok...I'm not THAT crazy. I will settle with knitting this little baby dress for someone ELSE's baby! But you can bet it will be someone really precious to me! So sweet.
Parson Brown (a snowman) by Emily Ivey

How adorable is THIS little snowman Christmas ornament? I am envisioning a few gifts under my Christmas tree this year. What a delightfully fun little free knitting pattern! I can't wait to give it a try.
Peek-a-Boo Tee by Knifty Knittings
What a lovely little gem. What a great-looking tee knitting pattern. I love the simple stockinette design and the subtle peek-a-boo shoulder. It has a classic taste, and the cotton yarn is a great choice. I will definitely have to knit one for me!
Autumn League Pullover by Two of Wands

I love raglan, and this is just too pretty to pass up. A good color change in the sleeves and color might just give this sweater the baseball look I need. 😉⚾ I am always amazed when I find a free sweater knitting pattern. How generous! Thanks Two of Wands!
Tissue Packet Sweater by KMKat
Because...#winter. And also...#aging. I am to the point where I don't go anywhere without tissue. This free knitting pattern is a simple stash buster and would make a great small gift. I have already finished the knitting portion on my first tissue packet sweater, and I am ready for sewing it up! It should be keeping tissues clean in my purse by next week. Yahoo!
The Child by Angela Foltz

As far as I am concerned, Angela Foltz is a genuis, life-saver...because 1) We are ALL hooked on The Mandalorian 2) We ALL - particularly 6yo Evan - LOVE baby Yoda 3) Even though we have already pre-ordered him The Child "baby Yoda" plushie, Disney has epically failed us by not having them ready until May. (March if you believe the news.) So...in the meantime, I'd better thank Angela for being so creative, talented and generous...and get these knitting needles to work. Angela...I know we've never met, but...I owe you one. Thank you for the free baby Yoda knitting pattern. May the Force be with you. ;) #starwars
Baby Yoda Hat by Shinah Chang

And while we're at it...I'll definitely have to make him a Baby Yoda Hat. Wish I'd had this for the release of The Rise of Skywalker. He wore a jedi suit, but he was Baby Yoda in heart.
Knitted Scrunchie by Rosie Is Making Things

Last but NOT least...Rosie has just earned a new fan! I found this great free knitting pattern for a scrunchie, and I duplicated it to make a scrunchie to match Eden's Sweater. I think I had it done in about 3 hours of knitting combined over the week?? Maybe less. Regardless...it was done in time to add a little stuffer to Eden's stocking. And since Xander was the last one to wear Eden's sweater, I'm guessing the scrunchie might get multiple shares, as well. FYI...I used Loops and Threads Impeccable yarn, size 9 dpn and cast on 15. (My gauge tends to be loose.)
Now THAT'S a perfect 10, if you ask me. Happy Free Pattern Knitting!
