Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I very much would like the pattern with the bright mid-green color dress with hote accent with hat pictured ...a sun dress, no sleeves. It is what I had been looking for and spent considerable time with some else's roughly put together pattern. My work is a mess! No way to put a rating! 5-star Oops, found it, barely visible.

in the seed stitch video, what size yarn and needle are you using?

Could we add a couple sweet lace baby bonnets to the mix? Would love to make my Grand daughter that is on the way a couple like all my girls wore. Thanks, Cynthia

I love these tiny, cute patterns! I can't pick which one I want to knit first!

Hi, dear Joannie Lovely pattern, I like them, but I,m from Iran. I know English a few. do you have any pattern as a picture? or as a symbol knitting? Thank you very mach.

Is it not possible to get patern book if I live in south africa

To print the projects, click on the projects that you like, then you will be taken to the pattern. From there, you will be able to print each one out.

lovley patterns

not good for me. I wanted a diaper cover and shrug set.

is there any way I can get this book of baby patterns printed out .

Hi Joannie, You will have to check out each pattern separately to print the one's you want. Thanks!

These patterns looks great - I like the dummy clip that's soooo sweet - I may have to try this one now I know I am finally expecting a girl after two beautiful boys! x x

I love the elongated stitches hat! Such a cute and easy pattern.

how can i get the instructions for baby sweaters?

You can get the instructions by clicking on the project you like. It will take you to the pattern, which you can then print out.

Hello. It is so nice - when like now the picture is there for me to see it. Wouldn't it be so nice if it was possible to have patterns with pictures? I DO KNOW - AND I DO VERY MUCH APPRICIATE IT - THAT YOU MUST BE A VERY BUSY - (LOTS OF STAFF) WORKING ON THIS. I think? they all come with pictures? or am i wrong all the way? Please, if you can? tell me all about this. KInd regards.

Unable to access the Hoodie baby Blanket

Great but how do you get baby patterns up like a bonnet & sweater (easy ones to do)

Hey, ya get what ya pay for? Some web patterns are very poorly written. If the item is unique, I copy the pattern to a document, and reformat to my idea of print and photo(s)large enough to see clearly, yet using as few pgs as possible (5 pgs to 2). And the name of the designer and the link are always included. Really, a work of art. Do I then produce the wonderful, amazing, most adorable item? Nooooooo..... BUT! I do have the pattern which I can use at aaaaaany time (1,000 jillian re-formatted patterns later...) it's what an in-denial-hoarder would refer to as "my pattern collection." All FREE patterns, mind you, but I've also purchased quite a few (haven't made them either). It could happen, it could happen...?!? Shoot, I'm only 62! cackle..cackle...witchy laughter...I LOVE YOU BETTY WHITE!

well dont think much tryed to download the duck and booties with no joy

Thank you thats great Maura

For the Summer Baby Cardigan - this pattern is so incomplete and incorrect: needle sizes used in the pattern must be switched to mm instead of U.S. size??? The pattern says to cast on 71 stitches with US size 4 needle. Turns out, the author must mean size 6! I made the sweater, but it's MUCH smaller than the pattern says it will turn out. It's very difficult to follow the pattern. In fact I wound up rewriting it for myself and only through trial and error was I able to keep the bee stitch working. Does anyone on your staff review these patterns for accuracy and completness?

how do i get the free instruction book i signed in.

Love the patterns and have at this moment never had a problem with printing them. The only thing is i wish you would put the UK details in as well as the US as there are a lot of UK knitters log in to this website or recomended by other knitters/

I think you send too many emails with the same patterns over and over.

Hello JennyBee, Thanks so much for your response dated Dec 3rd 2012. I didn't see it until this afternoon, but just had to drop by and say a great, big THANK YOU for your response. Regards, sandralea AKA GrannyGoode

For pamcheflinda, Hello! Sorry I didn't see your post from Jan. 3rd, 2012 until this afternoon. No, I was not able to find the Fair Isle Cardigan in infants' and toddlers' sizes. I'm not giving up the search, however. And I have made a note of your name and this website in my special little notebook, just in case I do find it. I will certainly let you know if the pattern can be found. We can't just give up now, can we???

@ sandralea, I am so sorry, but we unfortunately had to remove this pattern from our site. The original pattern designer has either moved it from their site or took it down, and we were unable to update the link. We apologize for any inconvenience, --editors of AllFreeKnitting

I want very much to purchase the Infant Fair Isle Cardigan pictured on the November 24, 2011 Happy Thanksgiving issue, but am unable to access the link. When I click on the highlighted link "Fair Isle Cardigan" I receive advertisements for ready-made items via Nordstrom, etc., and when I highlight another associated link, I end up with an advertisement from Olay facial products. NOT WHAT I WANTED!!! I have searched high and low throughout the website to gain access to this lovely Fair Isle Cardigan pattern for 0-6 mos, 6-12 mos, and 12-18 mos sizes, without success. Can someone please advise me on how to proceed? I'm hoping the pattern is still available, as I have twenty-one grandchildren to knit for and would LOVE to work up this pattern for the little kidlets. Thank you kindly. Sandy Schell

Were you able to get the Fair Isle pattern you wanted? I have 8 grandchildren and the 9th will arrive in July. I would love a copy of it as well if you would be willing to share. Thank you!

I've been searching for a bunting for a newborn that can be used with a car seat, especially one with legs. Anyone?

I designed a beautiful cable bunting. I left the bottom open and made eyelet openings (yo, 2T) and slipped a ribbon through them. Sack when in the for the car seat!

Is there a blanket pattern that goes with the elongated stitch baby hat?

@angelmolloy 7772905, Here is a link to the baby bunting project featured on this page: If that's not what you were looking for, here is a link to all of our baby bunting patterns on AllFreeKnitting: --Editor of AllFreeKnitting

I just love the patterns that I have seen. I was very glad to see some for boys. They seem to be hard to find. I have a new grand son.
