Sometimes we need a little mystery in our lives to spice things up. I’m not saying you’ve got to bust out the Agatha Christie novels or anything (although come to think of it, that sounds pretty nice right about now!) but every now and then a little curiosity can go a long way. Since it’s the middle of the week, I thought I’d add a little excitement to the blog today and bring you seven mysterious knitting patterns that all have one stitch in common! But what are these patterns, you ask? You’ll just have to find out for yourself, but I’ll give you two hints: all of them are knit shawl patterns, and all of them use the garter stitch.
This is the perfect time of year to work up a knit shawl, and I can guarantee that all of these patterns are as comfortable as they are fashionable! Whether you want to spread the love and gift one to a friend or make one and keep it for yourself, you’re sure to find a mystery pattern that appeals to you. Below, I’ve included a video tutorial so you can learn how to knit the garter stitch if you’ve never worked with it before. Then beneath that is the list of mystery patterns! Have fun uncovering the mystery, and see which of these free knitting patterns is your favorite. (I’m a big fan of #3, myself!)
