Create an attractive texture in your knitwork doesn't have to be complicated. In fact, with the seed stitch, it becomes as easy as alternating between knit and purl stitches. Even if you've just learned the foundation of knitting, free knit patterns in seed stitch are one of the fastest (and addictive) ways to achieve a modern, professional look to whatever project you're making. With just simple stitches, you'll be able to make a piece of fabric that features tiny, seed-like bumps in the work. These itty bitty bumps provide the groundwork for a variety of projects, both large and small, that effortlessly blend with other stitches. For example, you can pair a seed stitch border with a stockinette stitch jacket for a timeless accessory that's now overpowering. If you're seeking a bolder design, try knitting a new scarf or cowl in the seed stitch for a quick and easy knitting pattern that's bound to draw compliments.
Whether it's a favorite recipe, a priceless heirloom or a knit hat that's always been your go-to pattern for the holiday season, each and every family has something special that's been passed down from previous generations. In this very special collection of simple knitting patterns, we're pulling out a few of those classic designs that are all grandma approved. From winter essentials like hats, mittens and slippers, to kitchen keepsakes like dishcloths and mug rugs, this group of easy knitting patterns will keep your needles clicking all year long.
Don't you love the feeling you get when you complete a knit project? And yet, no matter how powerful your love for that feeling may be, it can be challenging finding time to finish everything on your needles. Thankfully, I've discovered a solution - it's called the garter stitch. If you haven't heard of it before, the garter stitch is one of the most basic stitches a knitter can create. Unlike the seed stitch which contains a combination of knit and purl stitches, the garter stitch is simply the knit stitch repeated over and over in each row. While a simple motion, the result is an attractive, ridged garment that's suitable for use in a variety of projects including this list of 15 simple knitting patterns.
Knitted gifts are a fabulous way of showing that special teacher just how important they are to you. If you're looking for a nice project that's not too involved, any one of these 15 Xmas Teacher Gifts would make exceptional presents.
