Free Pattern Friday: Knits, Quilts & More

Posted by on Mar 8, 2013 in Crocheting, Jewelry Making, Knitting, Paper Crafts, Quilting, Sewing | Comments


As the week winds down, the first question we ask ourselves is: What projects are we working on this weekend? Time is precious, and we like to use every moment possible actually doing (not just thinking about) our craft of choice, whether it’s quilting, or crocheting, or knitting, or sewing, or anything else. We had a feeling that many of you would agree. That’s why we want to start your weekends off right, by pointing you to awesome and completely free patterns every Friday. That way you simply check them out, download the ones you like, and then you have the whole weekend (and more) to quilt/knit/sew/crochet/paper craft, etc. Remember to check back every Friday to see our latest batch of awesome free patterns!

    I recently wrote asking if there were any courses on the proper way to knit the “European way” where you hold the yarn in the left hand. I was taught to hold the yarn in my right hand, as were most of my friends, but I had a German neighbour who could knot so fast using yarn held in her left hand.

      I don’t know if any of the classes here show continental or european knitting, but there’s a great video on You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuRLFl36tDY

        I have been asking the same question about europian knitting for yrs I’m going to give it a try thank you

    2. Fiber Babble says:

      I think what you’re looking for is called “Continental” knitting. There are bunches of videos online that demonstrate the technique. Try a few of them until one ‘clicks’ with you. (That’s my preferred way of knitting)

    3. Barb R says:

      Helen, it is called “continental knitting”. I don’t know of any specific classes, but you’ll be able to find lots and lots of videos on You Tube if you enter the correct term in the search box. Have fun!

      My aunt taught me how to knit when I was 12. Years later and many projects later she told me she taught me the German way to knit. ( holding the yarn in right hand) When I tried to hold the yarn in the left hand it felt so strange I just kept on knitting the way she taught me. :o)

    @Helen:

    What you’re speaking of is called the Continental method. Being from Germany, my mother taught me to knit this way when I was only six years old. I’ve found a video on YouTube that might be helpful to you. I don’t wrap my yarn the same way Judy does, but she says in the dialogue that there are various ways to hold it.
