Six fantastic knitting projects from our makers

This week we want to highlight six projects from you, our makers, that we think are truly fantastic. We love seeing you sharing and helping our community grow. Take a look at these great projects for some inspiration, and try some out for yourself!

1. Choopy the cat

Let’s start the list off with this cute little cat named Choopy from maker Florence Merlin. You can even add this dress pattern to make Choopy ready for a night on the town.

2. Begonia swirl

This stunning psychedelic swirl made by Cara M can be worn in a variety of ways, and will definitely add a touch of flare to your outfit. Why not make a few in different colors so you always have one to match your clothes?

3. Granny doll

Is there anything cuter than a knit doll of a granny who is also knitting? I think not. From the wire glasses to the toothpick needles, the details in Amanda Berry’s doll are astonishing. If you have a mum or a granny who knits, imagine their smile receiving this as a gift.

4.  Dewberry for Karen

 This dewberry pattern from Diane H creatively mixes a shawl and a cowl into this unique design. A perfect alternative accessory to a scarf, this dewberry will keep you warm and stylish.

5. Shark blanket

Kids will love the novelty of crawling into the mouth of this awesome shark blanket. Maker Josie D really lets her creativity shine through on this blanket. How about sharing the pattern with us Josie? I’m sure there are some kids out there who would love to have someone knit this for them.

6. Seaglass bodice

This seaglass bodice is a beautiful modern take on a Victorian classic. Holly H knit this without a pattern, and used a lacey leaf design and vintage Czech glass buttons to make this elegant bodice.

    I had some patterns saved on here that I purchased the wool for some time back and I can’t see to find them . Please could you tell me how I can retrieve them.

      Hello Andrea,

      You can log in to your Loveknitting account, then go to your account area and under the section called ‘My Downloads’ should be your pdf patterns 🙂

    Very good but where do i get the patters?

    • Jan Ward says:

      You have to download the pattern to a computer or tablet as it’s an electronic file. Once you’ve done that you can print it out yourself. You may need help if you’re not very computer savy.

    Its nice too know someone else does the same as me, by writing each down, and then crossing it off as you go.I love the Fish Tails project.
