Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone can recommend any good websites for knitting patterns?

If you don't mind paying is fabulous. I get all my wool from them too. Very quick.

Brill - thanks guys. I've also just found some here as well, some of them are free to download.

I like as they have free patterns and also a members forum so you can share ideas. You can receive regular emails from them too.

Etsy is also a good source but they're not free sadly!

I can remember when knitting patterns were 6d in old money.
They have gone up a bit haven't they?

Love does everything for knitting patterns wool and accessories. I've been having a good look as I've recently won £100 voucher from filling in a survey on Gransnet . So thrilled to win haven't won anything for years and years. DD2 and grandchildren are getting a new jumper and new cardigans respectively

I'd go for ravelry, there are thousands of patterns and groups like "loving the freebies" who keep finding more.

I just did a search because Patons do free knitting patterns online, and I found that Hobbycraft also do free patterns:
I haven't looked through them yet

The free ones from Hobbycraft include a Sirdar one in baby Crofter for which I paid about £2.75!
However, that was about 3 years ago and I have knit it at least four times.

I do more crochet than knitting but would second Deramores for both.

Thanks everyone, I've been having a good nosy at these!

Try, look at their knitting stitch patterns, good way to jazz up a favorite pattern.

I use and sometimes among others.

So, Deramores are more like an online store but they do some great bits and literally have thousands of knitting patterns to choose from, like baby blankets and cardi’s and all sorts.

I've bought some wonderful vintage knitting patterns on ebay. They're usually photocopies though.
