Wouldn’t it be nice to drop everything and take a long European vacation? Well, yes, but most of us don’t have the luxury of money or time for a long trek through Belgium, France, and Spain. Most of us, however, do have enough money and time to spend on an absolutely gorgeous European-inspired knitting pattern!
13 European-Inspired Knitting Patterns
These are thirteen free knit patterns from AllFreeKnitting  that are each inspired by a country or city in Europe. These patterns may prove challenging for beginner knitters, but they’ll be perfect projects for more experienced yarn-workers with some wanderlust in their hearts.
Take a stroll through the Aran Islands with a wrap  inspired by the famous cable knits that are made there. Bring a bit of Italian fashion into your closet, and quickly too, with a stylish jacket  that’ll take the town by storm. Maybe try on a French beret  and eat a baguette sandwich from the comfort of your own home. Or, you could even take the spirit of Europe and condense it all into a single scarf  that’ll accompany you on your future travels through parts of the world you dare to tread. These European-inspired knitting patterns also make amazing gifts for your well-traveled friends and family, or for someone studying abroad this year.
You may not be able to soak up the sun on a Grecian beach or go hiking through the Swiss Alps this weekend, but you can park yourself in front of the TV, turn on the Travel Network and knit yourself a Nordic cardigan  to soothe the traveler in you.
