So you enjoy knitting scarves, hats and sweaters in a variety of colors and sizes — but did you know that you can knit your own accessories, too?  From simple knit jewelry patterns to cute-and-chic wristbands and bracelets, it's amazing how many free patterns are available for trendy accessories. 

To help get you started working on patterns that may be outside of your normal knitting schedule, I've pulled together some of my favorite knit accessories from AllFreeKnitting.  In this collection of 25 patterns, you'll discover easy knit headband patterns topped with bows, unique solutions for telling keys apart, electronic cozies, knit flowers, simple knit buttons and more.

These knit accessories make excellent gifts for the ladies in your life. We even have a few patterns that would be excellent last-minute gifts for Father's Day, in addition to the beautiful headbands that your mother is sure to love on Mother's Day. Check them out below in your new go-to guide for knitting accessories!

This selection of unique patterns is especially great for getting through your yarn stash.  If you have trouble remembering which key goes to which door, consider knitting each key its own colorful key cozy using the Creative Key Cozy pattern.

Free Knit Flower Patterns

Flowers are not only fun to make, but they can be used for a variety of things. Add some knitted flowers to your next afghan, sweater or scarf for an additional touch of whimsy. Transform a few knit flowers into a pin which can be worn with a variety of cardigans and blazers during spring and summer. 

Once you start knitting up flowers, you'll love finding out how many ways you can use them! Some people even knit bouquets for their weddings or flowers for their home decor. How would you incorporate knit flowers into your life?
