"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

As much as we may want our children to stay babies forever, we want equally as much to watch them grow up. When your child hits their fourth birthday, the truth is that some of your old standby toddler knitting patterns may not cut it anymore. He's almost in kindergarten, if you can believe it, and toeing the line between 'toddler' and 'child.' This list of free knitting patterns for 4 year olds will help you build your arsenal of patterns to knit your child (or grandchild) that will actually fit her, as finding free knitting patterns for kids under 5 can actually be quite the challenge! Knitting patterns for 3-4 year olds are particularly difficult to find.
A few qualities to keep in mind when looking for patterns for kids around age 4 are comfort (for fussy children) and durability (so it won't fall apart as he clumsily navigates through life). For this reason, these patterns have all been chosen for their cozy yarn choices and construction built to take a beating. By this age, your child no doubt has color preferences, so make it a group effort and ask the four year-old what colors he or she would like these patterns knit in. This will help make your gift even more special to them.

Free Knitting Patterns for Children's Sweaters
These children's sweaters will both be the perfect fit for your little 4 year-old and will stand up to all of his rough playing. We love the colorful-yet-classic designs of these patterns for kids because they can let your child's personality shine through without overshadowing their natural cuteness.
Free Knitting Patterns for Toddlers: Cardigans and Vests
Many people prefer cardigans for toddlers and young children over sweaters because it's hard to get a squirmy child out of a pullover. With a cardigan, you get all of the cuteness of a sweater with none of the hassle, and with a vest, you don't have to worry about sleeves catching on little fingers.

Hat Patterns for 4 Year-Olds
Hats are one of those annoying things that children insist they don't need, but they certainly do. Try to pick a fun hat pattern to knit for your child so they're excited about wearing their hat when it's chilly outside (rather than fighting you on it).
Free Scarf and Accessory Patterns for Toddlers
Clothing patterns aren't all that's out there! There's a variety of scarves, mittens, cowls... you name it! Anything that you would knit for yourself, you could knit for your 4 year-old.
