Happy Knitting !

Sample Patterns

The following free knitting patterns are in PDF format. Simply “Click” on the “FREE PATTERN BUTTON” and you will be able to view and download a complete knitting pattern. Please note there are obvious redundancies in the 4 patterns with only small changes in the patterns to make each Folk Doll a separate project.

I prefer using every and any means necessary to “making” the project a successful and enjoyable experience. I am making the following patterns publicly available to familiarize beginning and intermediate knitters with my pattern-design-style.

While there are very specific knitting pattern protocols, there are also less specific presentation formats employed by different designers. I have enjoyed knitting projects with very little in the way of pictures, diagrams, animations, even videos. I have also enjoyed knitting projects that are loaded with some or all of the above. As long as the written knitting instructions are clear, concise and consistent, supplying additional information / media remains more a matter of designer’s preference / style than a requirement.
