Free Knitting Patterns

Free Vintage Knitting Patterns

If you’re into vintage knitting, then you are in the right place. I’ve been collecting old knitting patterns for ages and scanning them to save them or fix them up. (You should see one I did recently – I literally had to pull it apart and cut it up so I could scan it all. It was painful but necessary.)

These patterns are just too nice to keep to myself and I am looking forward to sharing them with you. If you happen to make anything from any of these patterns, please get in touch and show me your handiwork – I’d love to see it. You can comment below or send me an email via katiefoolery at gmail dot com.

It takes time to scan and fix the patterns, so please do not take these patterns to sell. Do feel free to print them out or share them with like-minded vintage knitters, however!

Click on the covers for a larger image and the link to the pdf. Enjoy!

Even more free patterns!

The best collection of links to free patterns can be found at the incredible Vintage Pattern Files. Check it out!

Oh, thank you so much for sharing these! The floral motif jumpers are sooo up my ally, and one day I might be skilled enough to knit them. In the meantime, I’ll just sigh over all the pretties. ❤

You are most welcome! I have so many of these lovely treasures and it felt like high time I began sharing them with the knitting world. Enjoy your sighing – I’ll be adding plenty more to the collection. 🙂

Eventually you may find yourself compelled to knit some of them… 😀
