Designer vs. DIY: 7 Free Knitting Patterns

[2]

One of my favorite things about the winter season is window shopping. Seeing all the beautiful displays set up to entice eager holiday shoppers can be truly beautiful. Rows and rows of freshly pressed dress shirts in all sorts of colors, adorable knit scarves [3] that hang in the windows, and cozy knit mittens [4] that line the shelves of brightly lit outfitters fill me up with holiday cheer.

Although window shopping is a fun activity that’s painless for your wallet, actual Christmas shopping is not. Finding an appropriate gift for everyone on your list gets harder and harder every year. Pleasing everyone is a tall order, especially when you’re trying to save money and be a smart consumer. This year, you’ll be able to give a gift that’s both stylish and heartwarming with these knockoff designer knitting patterns from fashionable clothing brands.

Go Team Toddler Hat [5]

Keep your toddler warm in style this winter season in the Go Team Toddler Hat [5]. This spirited striped hat gives the Queensland Rugby Beanie from Anthropologie a run for its money…for way less.

Hands Free Striped Scarf [6]

It’s hard to tell the difference between our Hands Free Striped Scarf [6] and the Anthropologie Newsprint Striped Scarf. Skinny stripes make for a fun and festive knit scarf for the winter season.

Two Hour Pink Clouds Cowl [7]

The Two Hour Pink Clouds Cowl [7] has the Wooly Collar from Anthropologie beat. Not only does it have am adorable button, but the neck comes up higher for added warmth.

Drop Stitch Ladder Scarf [8]

The Anthropologie Open Weave Infinity Scarf looks a lot like our Drop Stitch Ladder Scarf [8]. The only difference is that you’ll have a lot more cash in your wallet when you knit ours.

Diamond Leaf Mitts [9]

These lovely lace Bobble Fingerless Gloves from Gap look a lot like our Diamond Leaf Mitts [9]. Both are a sweet shade of pink that would look adorable on a little girl.

Anthropologie Inspired Bracelet [10]

The unique Anthropologie Inspired Bracelet [10] is a bargain compared to the real thing. Have fun with a bit of chain for a funky knit accessory.

Anthropologie Inspired Fringe Scarf [11]

Selma Fringed Scarf from Anthropologie is a lighter-weight version of our do it yourself version. The Anthropologie Inspired Fringe Scarf [11] is a fun way to get flirty with fringe this holiday season.
