Free knitting patterns spring forward from unlikely sources

Spring and Easter knitting patterns may include bunnies, chicks, and eggs for baskets, cheerful shawls and baby sweaters, too. These free patterns should keep you knitting for a while longer this Spring.

Martin Storey is a "storied" designer and many of his knitting patterns are posted for free. They range from small toys, home decor, child to adult-sized sweaters and jumpers.

Try this clever Easter bunny pattern, fast and ever sweet - Rebecca Danger's "Bunny Nuggets."

Read on for the links.

Martin Storey's darling "Chick" baby sweater is knit with DK yarn on a US 6 (4 mm) needle and available for wee chicks, infant size to 18 months.

As you can see, the chick is a simple appliqué and requires very little embroidery, so very sweet.

"Fuzzy Mitten Lamb" is knit tightly with worsted yarn, only 50 grams, on a US 6 (4mm) needle as well. Finished size is 7.5" and perfect for the Easter basket or baby's crib.

Martin Storey's "Jill" is another baby jacket pattern, also in sizes newborn to 18 months, sweet with Easter flower basket pockets, and available for free on Rowan's pattern site. You will have to log in, and, believe me, it is well worth your time for the abundance of free patterns you can add to your knitting and crochet pattern library.

Alan Dart's "chick and egg" is a fun project I knit several years ago.  You'll find more details here and the link for the free chick and egg knitting pattern.
