Hi! I'm looking for a cute flower pattern. I love the look of these flowers:

I'm guessing that these are crochet, but was hoping to find a knit pattern just as cute. I'm not good enough at knitting to figure out my own pattern (I so wish my knitting master Aunt was still alive!) so was just trying to find a similar pattern to knit. I've found lots of flower patterns, but none as cute.

This looks like it's just a rectangle. Cast on a multiple of 4 stitches plus 2 and work in seed stitch (row 1: k1, p1, row 2: purl the knits and knit the purls) for a bit, looks like maybe six inches, then change to 2x2 ribbing and work for the same length. Fold the rectangle at the transition between the two patterns and drape it over the back of your neck.

This one also looks very simple, though you have to figure out how large an armhole you need before you start knitting. Taking your upper arm measurement and adding at least two inches should work if you don't plan to wear it over anything bulky. Cast on enough stitches to to make a scarf the width of your arm hole (half of whatever your upper arm plus some comes to) plus at least 4, but probably more like 6-8 inches.

Then you just alternate a couple patterns as you feel like it. One is garter stitch (knit every row) with a row of eyelets (k1, then yo, k2tog to the end) every couple rows, and the other is seed stitch again.

When you get the scarf the length you want make an armhole by working a couple inches (half whatever you added to your armhole width) then bind off the stitches in the middle for your armhole and finish the row. On the next row cast on as many stitches as you bound off before.

Resume your scarf knitting until you have knit enough to reach from the first armhole across your back to the next armhole. This will be about the same length as your back measured from "side seam" to side seam at your underarms, you'll probably want it to be a couple inches longer. Make another armhole and then knit the scarf so the length matches what you knit before the first armhole.

This last one is a bit harder to see because of the fringe, and the fact that the thumbnail shows the front but when you zoom over you see the back. I think it's another rectangle though, in plain stockinette. It looks like they just divided the fronts from the back and continued knitting straight until the armhole slits were long enough and then bound off. The trick of it looks to be that they folded the armhole edges to the outside so the purl side shows (this also makes the top of the shoulder narrower so it's not a drop shoulder anymore). I don't  know if they sewed the shoulder seam and then folded it back and tacked it down or if they folded it and then sewed it.

If you try this one be sure to consider how stockinette rolls. Use a loose gauge and consider using a fiber that wants to drape and be kinda limp.

Not sure if this fits in this thread, but I thought I'd try as I am, in fact, looking for a pattern.

On DH and my "babymoon" we purchased 300m (328yds) of bulky weight Irish wool with the intention that I would make sweaters for the babies I'm currently growing inside me.  While the lady in the shop assured me 300m would be enough I'm now having a devil of a time finding a pattern that will net me two sweaters in any size.  Yes, I've looked on Ravelry.  I'd still like to try before giving up and making hats.

Do any of you have a go-to baby sweater pattern that uses relatively little yarn?  Again, I have bulky weight, 300m/328 yards, in a gorgeous raspberry tweed color.  And I'd love to get two sweaters out of it for my twins.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew of a free pattern like Berroco's Pasadena sweater?


Berroco site
Ravelry page

I've looked through a few pages of the most popular sweater/cardigan patterns on Ravelry but don't like the look of most of them. I thought I found the perfect pattern when I saw Pasadena, but I'm discouraged after reading the reviews. I've never knitted a sweater before so I don't think I could handle a pattern with mistakes and uneven fitting.

What I like best about this pattern is that it's knitted flat and in pieces, which would break up the project into more manageable chunks. I love the structured, fitted shape and the seaming adds interest to an otherwise simple look. The collar is a bit long, but I like the fact that it's not a v-neck or a turtleneck. Also it seems to be a moderate weight sweater (knitted in worsted or aran rather than bulky), which is what I'm looking for as a cozy extra layer this winter.

If anyone knows of a pattern like this I would absolutely love a link. Free patterns are preferable but I would also consider patterns that can be downloaded for a small fee (around $10 or less) Thanks!


EDIT: After looking through the completed project comments for the Rogue sweater on Ravelry, I've found some instructions to "cardiganize" it! I think I'll try that, since I love Rogue but I'm not looking for a pullover. So I do believe I was able to answer my own question Smiley

So I saw these super adorable hats at Penneys the other day...
http://www.jcpenney.com/jcp/X6.aspx?GrpTyp=PRD&ItemID=1b8f673&DeptID=73375&CatID=73475&SO=0&Ne=5+23+1031+18+904+949+833&x5view=1&NOffset=0&N=4294937278&Nao=21&PSO=0&CmCatId=73375|73475
but they are ridiculously over-priced, and I'm sure I could make one pretty easily.  However, I'm having some trouble wrapping my mind around how to do it.  I've tried searching for a garter stitch hat pattern, but haven't been able to find anything that I like.  Am I totally over-thinking this?  Could I just make a basic hat in garter stitch and just pick up stitches for the ear flaps?  Also, would it be easier to knit it flat and seam it?  I've made lots of hats on circular needles, but never in garter stitch.  Any input is appreciated!

I looked at all those animal hats, they are cute!  Have you hunted on Ravelry?  They have a ton of cute animal hats.  If you search 'animal hat' you get so many free ones.  I did a quick search and heres some free patterns that are similar to them.  Ravelry membership is free, and its totally worth signing up to access all the free patterns

Stockinette is certainly less brain power in the round than garter stitch, but I see no reason not to make a basic garter stitch hat and pick up stitches for the ear flaps.

I saw this pretty sweater at Old Navy and was curious what creates the holes in the fabric. Did they switch to bigger needles?

Are there any similar patterns I could use to create an over shirt like the one at Old Navy?

Eiseldora, you usually just turn the yarn over the stitch at the specified location, and then at the next round you slip that yarn-over-un-stitch and thus creates a hole there. There are many ways to make holes though, depending on what it's supposed to look like and what's beside it.
