Knitting and crochet pattern books for free, online library

It took me a while to figure out openculture's new offering, because it is too good to believe. A crafter's dream come true, an online library of knitting and crochet pattern books, free patterns dating from the nineteenth century to almost present day, well 2015, free downloads with a click. Knitting and crochet magazines with titles like Jane Austen Knits, Vogue Knitting, Crochet Today, etc, etc.  Print out a single pattern or an entire magazine.

The only thing required is a free registration. After you sign in with your password, write "knitting" in the search box. A lengthy list of knitting and crochet links will appear, the second one has 21,000 plus magazines. Voila! Interweave Knits is there, as is Simply Knitting.

This collection was added to the Wayback Archive in December 2015.

There's plenty more at this free archive link, books, movies, it just goes on and on.

I just printed out the pattern for this Brioche Rib Hat, instructions on page 78 of Vogue Knitting, 2015, 09

Here's the link, guard it with your life. Think I will knit these Scandinavian mittens next from Knitting Traditions 2014.
