"Where are the best free patterns?" There are oodles of free pattern sites for knitting and crochet crafting. Among the best are Ravelry and Garn Studio, publishers like Vogue Knitting and Interweave, and the yarn sellers and producers. A recent new discovery is the UK's LetsKnit Magazine's site, particularly for their free pattern Christmas ornaments and quick gifts. Susie Johns' chicken doorstop knitting pattern won the hearts of many a knitter when the free pattern link was posted on Knit and Crochet Patterns' Facebook page last week.

The Christmas ornaments and really cute and unusual quick gift patterns are written with metric measurements, which shouldn't be a problem for most Americans. Just turn your tape over for centimeters. And the majority of the quick knit and crochet patterns use yarn from your stash, small bits, colors are a toss-up. Susie Johns' "three quick knits," including a yoga sock pattern, will start your wheels turning. You'll find several sneak peeks of what the site has to offer for both knit and crochet in the slideshow.

The baby snowman hat pattern requires a sign-up which takes a few seconds, but is totally worth it for the free pattern. Christmas tree ball ornaments come in stripes, plain, and fair isle patterns. There are several quick gift bag and clutch patterns, and as well, a knitted jewelry necklace pattern that uses the Clove "Wonder Knitter" or "knitting nancy". Enjoy LetsKnit's free pattern site, go ahead and look, there are 19 pages and have a wonderful Christmas!
