The online world of knitting is made so much better by knitting bloggers and their dedication to the craft. From knit scarves to cardigans, sweaters, and more, these bloggers have knit and purled their way to the top and have made their mark on the knitting world.

Bulky yarn, bun hats, hand-dyed yarn, and oversized sweaters were just some of the knitting trends that dominated 2017. These bloggers took those themes and transformed them into amazing (and free) patterns that knitters around the world loved.

These bloggers were also the designers behind AllFreeKnitting's top 100 patterns of 2017. Check out the blogs we loved this year!

Little Red Window

I’m a former architect with degrees in architecture, historic preservation, art and art history who’s never met a craft I didn’t like! I have been painting furniture for almost twenty years, taught myself to knit and crochet from a book in high school and have a special fondness for making things out of recycled cardboard. And when I’m not chasing after my 2nd grader or toddler, I’m usually knitting, thinking about knitting or reading lots and lots of books (some of which are about knitting!) Visit me at to see all of my projects and patterns!
