The patterns will be sent to your Paypal email address within 24 hours, though it’s normally much sooner. As these are all digital files, please be aware that we cannot refund your payment once the pattern has been emailed to you. These are all my original patterns for which I hold the copyright.

Charlie’s Baby Hoodie, Machine Knitting pattern

This very easy to knit machine knitted hooded sweater has striped raglan sleeves, and will fit babies from birth to around 12 months. I used Baby Bramwell 4ply for the smaller size in pale blue and white, and Bramwell Fine 4ply for the larger size in navy and red, though any suitable 4ply yarn can be used. The smaller size is modelled here by my grandson Charlie, who was 11 weeks old and weighed around 12lbs. Suitable for standard gauge knitting machines with a ribber.


Newborn Raglan V Neck Cardigan, Machine Knitting pattern

Machine knitting pattern for a basic V-neck cardigan for newborns. Knitted in any 4 ply yarn, this cardigan will fit from birth to about three months (Baby's weight up to about 12lbs). Suitable for all standard gauge knitting machines with a ribber. Materials: Approximately 80g of any suitable 4ply or fingering weight yarn. You will also need four buttons.


Easy Rib Cardigan, Machine Knitting pattern

This is an easy to knit full needle rib (FNR) cardigan with set-in sleeves. It has classic styling, and a relaxed, easy fit. No fiddly buttonholes either, I have shown a very easy way to do these. This cardigan could easily be knitted in a couple of afternoons. There are two lengths to choose from; hip length or a longer tunic length to wear over leggings etc. To fit sizes 30 - 48 inches (garment measures 34 - 52 inches)


Illusion Sweater, Machine Knitting pattern

For standard gauge punchcard & electronic machines with a garter carriage. Illusion patterns are also known as "Shadow Knitting". The picture really doesn't do the pattern justice. The finished pattern is very effective, and depending on the angle you look at it, the pattern will disappear and reappear. The effect is very similar to the hologram you see at the bottom of a credit card. It's easier and quicker to knit than most illusion sweaters, as the illusion pattern is in a central panel only. One size to fit 36 - 42 inches (garment measures 46 inches)


Ultimate Tunic, Machine Knitting pattern

For punchcard and electronic standard gauge machines. This garment can be knitted in simple stocking stitch, or with the garter carriage. Using the garter carriage will give the garment texture, which when steam pressed will catch the light and give extra interest to the fabric. Instructions are given for shaping the neckline on the machine. This method is used when knitting in stocking stitch. For garter carriage knitting, a cut & sew neck version is shown, complete with a printed template for the neckline, and full instructions. No ribber is required as the bands are knitted in stocking stitch. To fit sizes 30 - 44 inches (garment measures 34 - 48 inches).This pattern is suitable for any level of expertise from beginner to advanced, and can be knitted on any Brother, Knitmaster or Toyota standard gauge knitting machine, with or without a ribber.


Snowflake Jacket, Machine Knitting pattern

For punchcard & electronic standard gauge machines, with or without a ribber. The jacket is knitted sideways in one piece from left front to right front. Sleeves are knitted separately, and the cuffs and welts are attached last. Pockets with vertical openings are optional, and are knitted with the jacket body. Instructions for ribbed or fairisle welts & cuffs. To fit sizes 30 - 52 inches (garment measures 34 - 56 inches)


Sideways Knitted Jacket, Machine Knitting pattern

This is a pattern for a basic sideways knitted jacket with optional knitted-in pockets, in 4 generous sizes using any standard 4 ply yarn. Knitted almost in one piece, with a minimum amount of sewing up – only the shoulder seams, sleeve seams and pocket linings. Suitable for any standard gauge Brother, Knitmaster or Toyota knitting machine with or without a ribber. It can be made with many variations; fairisle borders at the top or bottom of sleeves, a fairisle panel down the centre of back and fronts, a lace panel or even small pintucks down the fronts. It has an unusual method for knitting and attaching the ribbed welts and cuffs, which gives a nice soft stretchy finish. Instructions for the variations are not included – this is the basic pattern only so you can add whatever patterning you choose. Sized to fit actual chest measurements 32 – 44 inches generously. This pattern would be suitable for a machine knitter with some experience.


Clover Sweater Machine Knitting Pattern

For electronic standard gauge machines only, with or without a ribber. The sweater is knitted sideways. Sleeves are attached to the body by picking up the stitches of the armhole, and knitted from the top down to the cuff. Cuffs and welts are attached last. Instructions for ribbed or fairisle welts & cuffs. To fit sizes 30 – 52 inches (garment measures 34 – 56 inches)


Six Patterns for all Standard Gauge Knitting Machines

A .ZIP file containing all 6 patterns shown in Adobe PDF format. DesignaKnit 6, 7 & 8 files are also included where appropriate, though you don’t need the program as full instructions are included with each pattern, with punchcard and/or electronic charts where applicable. They are all suitable for any level of expertise from beginner to advanced, and can be knitted on any Brother, Knitmaster or Toyota standard gauge knitting machine, except for the Illusion Sweater which needs a Brother machine with a garter carriage. All the patterns (except the Leftover Sweater) are also available as single printed patterns and as single downloadable files.


Designaknit Textures

A collection of shape files and stitch patterns. Twelve stitch patterns which can be knitted in fairisle or jacquard, or with the Garter Carriage in either one or two colours. The stitch patterns would be perfect for knitting afghans, or you could combine them with any of the six garment shapes, and have a collection of hundreds of different patterns! The Six Shape Files: Short Coat, Sideways Knitted Jacket, Sideways Knitted Sweater, Jacket with Attached Facings, Jacket with Piped Edgings, Tabard Tunic.


DesignaKnit Fashion Illustrations

This book will show you lots of different ways of creating an illustration of your garment using DesignaKnit and Paint Shop Pro. Maybe you just want to know how to draw a measurement diagram – that’s included as well. But best of all, you don’t even need to be able to draw or to be the least bit artistic! The book is supplied as a .ZIP file, containing an Adobe Acrobat format .pdf file, several basic garment outline templates, and sample stitch pattern fills and fabric fills. The instructions are written specifically for DesignaKnit versions 6, 7 & 8, and Paint Shop Pro versions 5, 6 & 7, though the sample files can be used with any Windows paint program that supports the .TIF file format.
