Knitting Pattern Central

I’m very excited to share with everyone that my Be Mine Hat pattern has been listed on Knitting Pattern Central.

Now, honestly, this isn’t a very big accomplishment in the grander scheme of things. The only requirements for listing your pattern are that it be free and have a picture. But, as an amateur pattern designer, I think it’s awesome.

All I had to do was fill out the contact form. I included links for the blog post and the PDF download. She chose to list the blog link which is actually better than just the download.

Knitting Pattern Central is a great website. The owner has compiled a lot, probably thousands, of free patterns. They are all organized by type. You’ll find mine under “Hats”. If you haven’t ever checked it out, please do. The website I mean, not my pattern, but you can check that out too. There is also Crochet Pattern Central for crocheters so don’t worry if you don’t knit.

Hopefully, I’ll share more patterns soon and, if you’ve written your own pattern, spruce it up and share it with the world.

    Congratulation! It is a lovely hat. I always go to Knitting Pattern Central to check out patterns when I am looking for a project. Good job.

    I have a pattern I have designed and want to put out there for people to try. I am new to blogging, etc., and do not know what I need to get my pattern made available. I have no blog or web site. What do I do?

    You probably need to make a pattern pdf. If yu have Ravelry, they have freee pattern hosting and you won’t need a website of your own. You can just share the direct pdf link.

    Cathy, if you are blind or low vision, you are welcome to check out our new submissions page to see if you’re interested in having your pattern posted on our blog. I don’t think my previous answer was sufficient, and since then we have been working on getting the submissions page up.
