Fangirling: 25 + Free Knitting Patterns Inspired by Books, Movies, and TV

By: Samantha McVeigh, Editor, AllFreeKnitting

Knitting can be a magical experience when you are working on a fantastic pattern. The sound of the needles clicking and clacking away. The satisfaction of finishing a particularly challenging pattern. However, as much as you may love knitting, we all have something else we are obsessed with: a TV show watch religiously, a movie where you know the actor's birthdates, a book you've read so often that the cover long gone. Fangirling: 25 + Free Knitting Patterns Inspired by Books, Movies, and TV holds several free knitting patterns from some of the hottest parts of pop-culture. If you think that if something's from a movie, it must be difficult, think again. Most of these are easy knitting patterns that you can complete at any skill level. If you want to introduce someone to the wonderful world of knitting, these patterns are a great place to start. Of course, there are some more advanced patterns that are sure to wow your friends and family. Just think about how excited you will feel when you sit down to watch your favorite movie or read your favorite book while wearing or using a matching accessory.

If you are looking for homemade gift ideas, or gift ideas for teens, or simple have a wonderful love for all things fandoms, you have come to the right place. Here, we have listed patterns inspired by Harry Potter, BBC Sherlock, Despicable Me Minions, and so much more. Want to look like Katniss? We've got you covered. Haven't quite moved on from Twilight? There are some incredible easy knitting patterns you will love to wear. And, of course, no fandom  collections would be complete without a Tardis pattern or two.

Knitting Patterns Inspired by Books

Considering I studied English in college, I may be bias, but books are the best medium for transporting you to another world. They immerse you without a screen, make you forget that you are staring at letters on paper, and create a level of empathy within people that is extremely difficult to duplicate. Because of how amazing literature is, it only makes sense that these wonderful knitting patterns are at the top of our list.

Knitting Ideas from Movies and TV

If your household is like mine, your family members know there is an hour a week where they will not get control over the TV because there the show I watch religiously is on. If you're lucky, your friends and family watch with you and you debate theories and critique plot holes together. Add an extra special flair to your favorite screen time with these fantastic knitting ideas from Movies and TVs.

Harry Potter Knitting Patterns

The owl with your Hogwarts letter may have gotten lost, but you can easily feel like you are in the Great Hall with these magical knitting patterns.      

Despicable Me Minion Knitting Ideas

Minions are everywhere these days, and it's obvious why. Whether your children are in love with these adorable yellow creatures, or you are, you are going to adore these cute and fun knitting patterns. They might not help with your cooking and cleaning, much less stealing the moon, but they will easily be some of your favorite knitting patterns.
