Appliqués are motifs designed from a wide variety of fabrics. In the case of our knit appliqués, they are made from wool and used to decorate fabrics and garments. Our small but fine selection of knitting patterns for appliqués will let you pimp and individualise your previously made works.
The knitting patterns in our range are available for both beginners and advanced knitting enthusiasts. Thanks to the many free appliqué tutorials, even inexperienced users can try their hand at appliqué, but it's also a great way for those who have already made a few knitting projects to try out new techniques without having to dig into their pockets.
When you start a new hobby, you first have to work your way up and learn the basics of the craft. Thanks to our beginner-friendly patterns, this is possible even if you haven't really looked into knitting before. Each of our patterns in the range is described in detail and made easy for everyone to understand thanks to the photos taken during the process and included in the patterns. Each step is explained in detail so that you end up with exactly the piece of work you have chosen to make. So nothing stands in the way of your new hobby. The more experience you gain, the quicker you will be able to try techniques that already require some knowledge. Some of our appliqué tutorials are designed for beginners, some are a little more complicated and therefore more suitable for experienced knitters. Browse through our category and find your new project.
In our categories you will find a variety of knitting patterns for any project. In addition to appliqués, we also have tutorials for clothing, accessories and ideas for home and living. Accessories like scarves and shawls are very popular in our community. Perhaps because they are the best way for beginners to get started and are easy to knit without needing a lot of knowledge. Advanced knitters will also find new challenges like jackets, underwear, jumpers and dresses. You will also find instructions for wool socks, which are especially popular in winter and at Christmas time as a gift for others or for yourself.
We also have a special category for children and babies. There you will find patterns for hats, socks, scarves, jumpers and mittens. With their many cute motifs, they are the perfect accessory for cold winter days. You can easily add value to simple garments with appliqués.
At Crazypatterns we also have a large selection of men's and women's clothing that can also be embellished with appliqués. This way, everyone in the house gets their own customised garment in their favourite colours and with matching patterns.
In the Home and Decoration category you will find lots of instructions for everyday items such as dishcloths, flannels, blankets, cushion covers, but also for decorative items such as key rings, Christmas gnomes, tablecloths and cup warmers. Especially as Christmas approaches, you are sure to find one or two gift ideas for your loved ones.
The advantage of knitting is that you hardly need any materials to do this hobby. For simple projects, you usually only need wool and knitting needles in different thicknesses. For more elaborate projects, you may need more. To make sure you know exactly what you need before you start your project, read through the pattern in its entirety before you take up the needle. It would be a shame to realise in the middle of the process that you are missing materials.
If you have everything, you can start right away. Although our patterns often use one colour of wool as a guide, these are only suggestions. If you prefer a different colour, that's no problem. Just always make sure that the wool matches the gauge of the needle, otherwise you may have problems finishing the work. This will only frustrate you and take the fun out of knitting. Fun should always come first in any hobby. That's why we advise beginners to follow the guidelines in the pattern booklet. Even if it doesn't work out the way you want, you shouldn't give up right away. Practice makes perfect and with a little time and patience you will quickly reach your goal. If you have any questions, the creator of your purchased pattern will always be available to help you if you get stuck.
Our free patterns are just the thing for those who want to try knitting for the first time and don't want to spend any money yet. You can download your chosen pattern immediately, without having to worry about any costs. All you need is an account with Crazypatterns. You will receive a high quality pattern that explains everything step by step and with lots of pictures. Our free patterns are in no way inferior to those for which you pay a small fee. Each pattern is of the same standard and explains all the steps in a clear and detailed way.
Choose your next project from our wide range of knitting patterns and learn at your own pace. When you purchase one of our free patterns, you'll receive a complete tutorial including important advice and information on needle size, wool and skill level required. If you already consider yourself a knitting pro, you can use our patterns to try your hand at new techniques and patterns. You may also find a garment that you haven't knitted before. Our free patterns are just the thing for that.
If you realise that knitting is not for you after all, you should not completely renounce needlework. We have many other tutorials for different areas, such as crochet. Try crocheting an appliqué instead of knitting it. Or try your hand at sewing. Crazypatterns has lots of patterns for that too, in the usual quality, free of charge or for a small fee.
In addition to our free patterns, many of the patterns are also discounted at Crazypatterns. Although many of our tutorials are very affordable, considering the work and time each creator puts into them, you can always get better value! In our Sale section you will find many of our knitting patterns at greatly reduced prices. The reasons why they are on sale are always different. The quality is the same as all our other patterns.
By the way, we also have special offers from time to time where you can save a lot of money. Patterns with discounts of up to 50% are not uncommon. Here, too, you will receive patterns of the highest quality. Each pattern is, as always, explained in detail and easy to understand.
In any case, it is worthwhile to take a look and if the patterns are on offer, you can also put a few more in your shopping basket. Browse through our discounts and pick out your next project right away. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced knitter, you'll find the pattern that's right for you. Get inspired and get started!
Why are not all patterns offered for free? Every pattern you buy from us is unique and has been created with a lot of time and effort by members of our community. In addition, once you have purchased a pattern, you can download it again at any time. It stays in your account and you don't have to buy it again. We think that this should be rewarded with a small amount of money.
To download a pattern, all you have to do is create an account on Crazypatterns and you can start shopping. You can park your desired pattern in the shopping cart or buy it immediately. Once you complete the purchase, the tutorial will be available for download at any time. You can open it on your iPad or laptop, or print out the PDF and place it next to you. You will always find the pattern in your account. So don't panic if you delete it by mistake.
If you already consider yourself a real knitting pro and don't know what to do with all your energy for this great hobby, then we would also be happy if you created a pattern yourself and uploaded it to us! Every member can offer their own pattern for sale. You can get inspiration for how they should look and be structured from other tutorials on our platform. Just please don't copy any of them and pass them off as yours. Everything has to come from you. If you pre-stretch the work once or twice, you can take photos during the process, which you can later include in the pattern.
You should also include information about the materials you will need and your skill level at the beginning of the pattern. With the help of this information, your potential buyers can see whether your tutorial is right for them or not. Once you have completed everything, you can upload the pattern to us as a PDF. It's up to you whether you offer it as one of our many free patterns, or whether you want to earn a little extra pocket money and make it available for a small fee.
You can also get reviews on Crazypatterns. If your pattern is clearly explained, you will receive many positive reviews. They will help you to sell more patterns and in no time you might be one of the best sellers on our platform. You can find more information about uploading and selling patterns in our guide.
