Free basic knitting machine patterns, patterns for all kind of knittingmachines
There are so many options for machine knitting, this is why I have created 420 basic garments,
with women's sweater with round crew neck and women's cardigan with V-neck patterns.
For cast on tips and basic cast on's or how to start knitting on
For those who don't know how my patterns are working, and they are working fine for many knitters,
all over the world; I use reverse engineering. What do I mean?
In most patterns, you read, check your gauge, and change your needle size to obtain the right gauge.
This means you have to force yourself to another needle size, (just when you liked your swatch)
to be able to knit that particular pattern.
Well, gauge is a personal choice and varies from knitter to knitter.
I reverse the method;
knit your tension swatch first, with your own beautiful yarn,
(from your stash, I know you have it, somewhere) LOL
in your own needle size and your own personal taste.
I do not know your taste and you cannot buy Dutch knitting yarns, to knit my patterns.
Do you get the trick?? After you have determined your gauge, you can pick one of my basic patterns.
All my basic knitting patterns are suitable for machine knitting too, as long as your gauge is the same.
Each gauge comes in five sizes; size 40 to 48. In addition, there are seven different gauges, (tensions).
This means I had to create 420 patterns, just to fill this page. ( $^#!)
I think you can knit a lot of sweaters and cardigans on your knitting machine, with these basic patterns.
If you can not find the right gauge, go to my other basic knitting patterns,
they can be knitted on the machine too.
Enjoy and please keep sending me digital photos of your finished work.

Remember; the amount of stitches are more important than rows,
because the required length of the garment, are in centimeters too.
