Knitting Around the World: 16 Global Knitting Patterns


As a knitter, I enjoy looking at patterns from around the world. Knitting styles and preferences from different cultures are so interesting, and it’s fun to work with techniques and motifs that are new to me. And with the 2020 Olympics coming up next summer, where athletes from all around the globe will be coming together to compete, celebrate, and share their experiences and culture, I thought it would be cool to dig up some knitting patterns for the occasion. Therefore, I put together this collection of 16 Global Knitting Patterns that showcase a little bit of style from lots of different regions. Whether you’re looking for a new knitted scarf pattern [3] or want a cardigan knitting pattern [4] perfect for summer, the sections below should have something for you.
