Free patterns, one and all!

Well color me blushy, I am all kinds of flattered that some of you thought my Lucky 7 Hat was worth actual fundage! But please! Like I'd charge you good yarn money for that. Go buy yourself something pretty instead.

Me, I like free. And so, these patterns shall be. And... uh... that's all the rhyming I got in me right now. The links below will take you directly to the pattern PDFs, which you can print, save, play Barry White songs to, whatever. There are also links to queue them up in Rav. So knit on, and enjoy!

Mitt Envy
Mitt Envy - Pattern PDF / Rav Queue
*PDF was updated on 11.2.08 to correct the following errata (shown in blue). If your pattern shows "(v2.11.2.08)" in the bottom right corner on Page 2, you have the corrected version.
Right Mitt, Fourth Repeat - Rows 2, 4: K4, P1, K12, P1, K8, M1, Knit to marker, M1, K to end.

Lucky 7 Red
Lucky 7 Hat - Pattern PDF / Rav Queue
* PDF was updated on 4.3.08 to include note to join in the round, and to 'splain that I didn't include the type of needles and such (circs, dpns, stitch markers) so you could use whichever method you prefer. :)

ScWiNoNa - Pattern PDF / Rav Queue
*PDF was updated on 1.30.09 to correct the following errata (shown in blue). If your pattern shows "(v2.1.30.09)" in the bottom right corner, you have the corrected version.
Starting Edge - Row 10 (WS):
K4, purl to last 4 stitches, K4.

So nice! I see rows for the hat. Does that mean straight needles? Asking because I do not see that there is any seaming in the finishing. So is this pattern for circular or straight needles?

I love the MittEnvy pattern that I found via Ravelry. And yes, the best things in life are free. Thank you so much for the pattern. Putting it on my "to knit" list as we speak.

Thank you very much for such a nice pattern!

I made a pair of these for a friend of mine and he really enjoyed!

I just finished the left mitt, my first attempt at cables. I wanted something to fill in the gaps in my coat for the Chicago winter so I made it a little longer by repeating the first cable. And even with just one done, my friends all want a pair. Thanks for the pattern, and thanks for the extra details!

Thanks for posting these patterns. I'm starting the Lucky 7 hat and just want to make sure I'm interpreting your instructions correctly.

Since I'm making the fold-up brim version, do I cast on 84, knit 23 rows of ribbing, then proceed to "Noggin?" I assume I then move on to "Crown." I hope I'm doing this right, 'cause I've already started.

Hi JellyDonut! I hope you come back and check the comments, as I didn't have another way to get in touch with you (I also check Ravelry, but the location in your Blogger profile and that user profile were different, so I figured it might not be you ;)).

Yes, you are correct! Knit on, and let me know how it turns out! :)

Blogger JellyDonut said...

Oops! My bad. I didn't know Blogger didn't post my email address and I had no idea about the Ravelry thing. That could get a bit confusing.

Thanks for letting me know I'm on the right track. I hope to finish the hat tomorrow.

Thank you so much for the patterns! I found the mitt's on Ravelry and loved the picture, decided to give them a try, come to your page and find the lovely hat! I have been looking for more than a month for a hat that I really liked to make for myself! We are going to have a very cold and snowy winter (so they say and so far are right!) this year, and I really needed a hat!
So Thank you TIMES TWO!!
Have a wonderful Holiday Season!!

Hi there on the pattern for the mitt envy how many stitches did you put on each needle and which needle did you place the cable stitches. I am going to make these and i am still fairly new at knitting. Thanks blondie63

I am fairly new at knitting and have never knit fingerless gloves before. I am on left mitt, fourth repeat, row 6 where it says transfer 21 stitches to waste yarn for thumb stitichs. I have only picked up 13 stitches. I want back in the pattern and counted one in the first repeat, 8 in the second and third repeat, and 4 in the fourth repeat. Where did I go wrong? Sharon

Nevermind - I figured it out so it is onward with the mitts. Sharon

Hi Sharon! I hope you come back and check this - I didn't have a way to get in touch with you, as your Blogger profile is marked private and there wasn't an email address in your comment. Glad you were able to figure it out!

Mom made me a hat and scarf from this cable - now I'll have to innocently pass her this pattern for matching mitts. Thanks so much for sharing the pattern - they're adorable!

Just a simple thank you for the Mitt Envy pattern. It is very well written making it fast and easy to knit. I used the Regia Design Line sock yarn in jewel tones and knitting just one pair is not enough! You are something special to share your talents with so many of us. I look forward to trying more of your designs.

tiamoe92 - I hope you come back and check this, as you didn't leave an email address, and your Blogger name doesn't link back to a profile.

You didn't specify which pattern you were referring to, but I'm guessing it's the Mitt Envy? If the 4-ply is fingering weight sock yarn, then yes, that would work just fine. In order to size it down, you might try reducing the number of stockinette stitches before and after the cable section.

Hope that helps!

thanks so much for a great pattern (lucky 7). Just made one for a friend, it looks fab and she's chuffed. Good luck!

Hello. I downloaded your pattern, Mitt Envy, from the Ravelry site, and I have started knitting... However I now have a problem. I don't know what you mean when you say "Slip marker".

e.g. "Knit all stitches to marker, slip marker, K8, P1, K12, P1 K to end."

It probably seems obvious to you, :) but unfortunately it's not obvious to me.

Hoping for enlightenment.

Anonymous, you didn't leave an email address so I hope you come back and check this!

In the pattern, you place a stitch marker so you know which stitches are for the thumb gusset. So you will knit all the stitches to the marker, then slip the marker from the left needle to the right needle, then K8, etc.

Hope that helps!

Yes, that helps. Thank you very much, weezalana! :D

Hi! Thanks for posting your terrific patterns, I am a newer knitter and not sure what the "work over" on the even rows means, exactly, on ScWiNoNa. Please explain if you have a minute. Thank you!

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Maybe this is a dumb ? but shouldn't there be 2 markers to slip, one for each side of the thumb? If so where do I put the 2nd one???? Thanks. I'm excited about getting started.

Blogger weezalana said...

Hi Anonymous - you didn't leave an email address or other way to contact you, so I hope you come back to check this! The thumb placement on the mitts is at the beginning of a row or end of a needle, so you shouldn't need a second stitch marker. Hope that helps!

Thanks so much for the pattern. Is there anything I should amend if I am using a DK weight (I will do a swatch to work out needle size). I am using mad tosh dk (to match a scarf in the same yarn)

I thought my comment would appear after your mitt pattern but in case it does not, that is what I was referring to, when I said I wanted to use DK weight.

Hey there! I just wanted to link you to a lace panel alternative that uses your mitt pattern as a base. You've been credited on my site and on Ravelry!

If there are any problems please do let me know and I'll do my best to resolve them.

Thank you! Mitt Envy has overtaken my house with Christmas presents for next year. This pattern has become a household staple. :D
