Wool-Aid knitters and crocheters are the best source of patterns and pattern recommendations for our Wool-Aid kids.
Our member designers have been really busy! Several new patterns have recently been added to the Wool-Aid Designer Patterns section of the Patterns page on the website. These patterns all meet Wool-Aid Guidelines, without modification. All of our member designer patterns are free, and all can be downloaded directly from our website’s Patterns page.
Here’s a sampling of some of the new patterns that are available for you:
In addition, Ravelry has a relatively new feature called Bundles, and our Wool-Aid group on Ravelry has been building Wool-Aid Bundles with recommended patterns from many sources. Some of these are paid patterns, but most of them are FREE! We have a Bundle for each of our focus items: Sweaters, Vests, Socks, Hats, Mittens, Blankets. While all of the patterns in the Bundles are good to use for Wool-Aid, some will need to be adapted to meet Wool-Aid guidelines, so notes have been added where appropriate. Because gauge differs from one person to another, always refer to the Guidelines; if working on a sweater, be sure to refer to the Sweater Dimension Guidelines (downloadable for reference) as well.
One of the neat things about Bundles is that we can link to them from the Patterns page on the Wool-Aid website so that they are accessible to all! You can download the patterns directly if they’re free, and you will be able to purchase them online if they are paid patterns. The paid patterns are indicated by a “$” below the pattern picture.
It’s a great resource. We hope you enjoy browsing the recommended patterns and find something you’re excited about making for our Wool-Aid kids!
