Free Knitted Dress Patterns

If you've ever wanted to learn how to make a dress, you're in luck. With these free knitting patterns, you have a ton of options as the warmer months start to creep up on us. From long tunics to children's knits, we have plenty of dresses to keep you busy all year long. These dress patterns come in all different weights and styles, so you can feel beautiful, light, and free when the flowers begin to blossom and the breeze doesn't chill you to the bone.

There are all different styles collected here for the girly-girl, the city-girl, or even the tomboy. These free knitting patterns for dresses encompass all skill levels, from beginner to advanced, so everyone has a pattern she can work with. Try using our tutorials to knit a teeny tiny dress for the newest addition to your family, or as a gift for your friend's birthday or bridal shower. The possibilities truly are endless, but whether you're knitting for yourself or for a gift, you deserve an array of choices to pick just the pattern.

Free Dress Patterns for Adults

Dresses are adorable, but they're just so expensive. Just about every woman in the world has considered making dresses herself just to keep the cost down. As it turns out, knitting is a great way to do that. Many patterns are actually quite a bit cuter than the ones you can find at a store. Some women even knit their own wedding dresses! We'll stick to cute and casual dresses for now, because you don't need to be walking down the aisle to look adorable. Treat yourself to one of these patterns and a beautiful dress you can say you made yourself.

Easy Dress Patterns for Babies and Children

There's nothing quite like little clothes to make you go "aww," but why blow all the money on those cute-as-a-button baby and child clothes if they're just going to grow out of them in a couple of months? Instead, just make a dress for babies and children to give yourself a fun project and keep your wallet full. You'll love these free knitted dress patterns as much as your child or grandchild, and the best part is that once you've knit a tiny dress that both you and the child adore, many of the patterns have instructions for larger sizes, so you don't have to say goodbye when they grow out of it.
