Free Knitting Patterns by Needle Size

It can be easy to take for granted how nice it is to be able to find patterns specifically for your knitting needle size when you've been collecting needles for years. I remember when I first started knitting and I only had a modest three sets of straight needles. There was nothing more heartbreaking than finding the perfect beginner pattern and realizing that I didn't have the proper knitting needle size to complete the project! I couldn't justify yet buying more needle sizes since I didn't know how long I would be interested in knitting, and it's only fair that newer knitters can find the perfect project for them fairly easily.

For the most part, you can guess what kind of needle you'll need for a project depending on its yarn weight, but it's not unusual for a pattern to call for smaller needles with bigger yarn for a more light, lacy look, or bigger needles with smaller yarn for a tight, dense fabric. I recommend waiting to buy the yarn for your project until you've found the perfect fit, but if you've already taken your trip to the craft store and found those special skeins of yarn, do bear in mind that you're probably going to need corresponding needles.
