Free Toy Knitting Patterns

FREE Octopus Knitting Pattern

Knitting patterns are great when they are free to download. Scroll further down this page for a collection of the patterns available from Knitting by Post for you to enjoy. No sign ups needed, just click on the one you like and enjoy your knitting.

You may knit for charity or knit for fun, either way you can start now. 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.

The patterns are easy to read and simple to use directly from your computer or smartphone.

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!)
