If you are a beginner knitter, these are great patterns to practice with as they are small knits and they will be made in a flash. If you are more advanced then here are some ideas for you to develop and add your own personal touch to.

All are created with double knitting yarn and 3mm single pointed needles. This means they are all knitted flat. A great way to use up the scraps of yarn that you have lying around or knit some of your stash. You can use any knitting needles or yarn that you have, no need to buy more (unless you want to of course!)

You will see from our universally simple knitting style that all patterns from Knitting by Post can be understood and are easy to make. Use up the scraps from your stash, these free patterns are great for beginners too.

The patterns are easy to read and simple to use directly from your computer or smartphone. Bookmark the pages on your device and you can come back again and again to knit these little easy gifts over and over again.

We have three different kinds of rainbow pattern as well as animal soft toys. Christmas, Easter and baby themed patterns are here too for you to enjoy completely free. Make a washcloth or a heart to gift to a loved one, it is your choice.

You can make beautiful homemade gifts for your loved ones. Kids will love the knitted toys that you craft and grown ups will love the decorations you lovingly craft. Make keepsakes for new babies and gifts for mum too. Knit for charity or to sell or for family and friends.
