Countdown to Christmas Knitting

November 13, 2013

Every day on Knitionary Facebook I've been sharing my favorite free pattern downloads,  just in time for some quick Christmas knittin'!  If you're not on Facebook, don't worry, just drop by the blog every week or so and I'll have a weekly recap.  Every picture caption has a link to the pattern.  Many thanks to the generous designers who make their patterns available for free!  (Note, some of these patterns may require you to be a member of the online knitting communities or  It's free and easy to become a member of either, and if you are a knitter, it's compulsory!)

Saartje's Booties would be a great gift for a family celebrating with a new baby this Christmas!
Medano Beach Bag by Heidi Kirrmaier.  I love this year 'round!

The Bandana Cowl from Purl Soho, a quick and clever cowl using bulky weight yarn.
Tiny Pants by Megan Goodacre.  ADORABLE!

Apple Pincushion, I'll have a Granny Smith please! 

Fellow Rowan Ambassador Jen Greigley designed the Gaptastic Cowl years ago and it's still in the top 10 on Ravelry!

Lindley by Sarah Hatton, great boys vest, but, umm, I want this for me!  Knit in Rowan Felted Tweed.  To download you must be a member of  It's free and easy and there are hundreds of other free pattern downloads available.
