Knit On The Go: 17 Easy Knitting Patterns
We are adding the pattern to your Knitting Patterns.
This pattern has been saved to My Knitting Patterns.
I love to knit on the go. I know that might be a strange thing to say; most people think of knitting as something you do while sitting in a rocking chair, next to a merrily crackling fire, with a cat on a your lap, when in reality none of those things are necessary, except the needles and the yarn. In fact, I find that I’m able to get a stunning amount of knitting done when sitting in the car or train while traveling to visit family and friends. Long trips are especially handy for the knitter, since there aren’t many other things you can do for hours at a time.
During those hours spent in the car, traveling to far-off places, you can get a surprising amount of knitting done. Whether you’re working on a pattern for mittens or a scarf, the time passes more quickly and enjoyably when you’re working on those stitches. These patterns are perfect for the on-the-go knitter who needs an easy knitting pattern that doesn’t require a lot of her attention. You can easily pick up and put down these projects without losing your place or forgetting which decrease round you were on.
Scarves are ideal for the traveling knitter. For starters, they’re straight, so increases and decreases are few and far between. No need to worry about some fiddly shaping when you’re working on a scarf. These particular patterns feature simple stitch combinations that look great, but are easy to remember. You can easily pick up and put down these patterns. Perfect for waits at the doctor’s office, sidelines at a soccer game, or a long trip, these easy knit scarf patterns will be an enjoyable way to pass the time without being too demanding.
Portable patterns that easy? It doesn't get much better than knit hats. Hats are small and generally quick projects, making them perfect for trips of all lengths. How to Knit a Hat Volume 2: Free Knit Hat Patterns for the Whole Family is a free, printable eBook that has a hat pattern for everyone in your life.
Deck yourself out for the winter months in your spare time with these patterns for mittens and hats. Though there are parts of these projects where you’ll need to keep track of your progress, for the most part these easy knitting patterns are a relaxing walk in the park. Turning out a mitten or two during your commute or trip home is a great way to get your Christmas knitting out of the way. These easy knitting patterns are simple and practical. They’ll keep you warm without too much fuss. Keeping the frills off makes these projects durable and well-suited to traveling.

More experienced knitters can turn up the heat with these more challenging patterns. Socks and patterns for babies are great projects to work on while sitting in the car. Both types of project will stay small, making it easy to stash your knitting in a purse or bag. You’ll enjoy the thrill of turning a heel while chatting with family about an upcoming vacation, or finishing off a baby sweater on the way to visit family. These patterns may require a more attentive and experienced knitter, but they still fall within the realm of easy knitting patterns.
