She should go to this link and check out all the "Free for a limited time" and always free patterns. Hundreds of designers have offered free patterns either with no code needed or with a code because of all the shelter in place rules. I think I've gotten about 100 free knitting and crocheting patterns in the past few days!


I am currently knitting Kate Atherly's Baby Socks. New mom's love them, and they can usually be made from leftovers from adult socks. I like to have some in reserve, in case I hear of a baby, who needs warm feet.


I follow Dayana Knits(?) on fb. She posts free patern links.


These are free for a limited time:
Lydian - a worsted weight cowl
Shila - a shawl using fingering yarn especially MadTosh
Linear equation - a shawl using fingering

Always free:
Winter’s Frost - top down socks
I like the Primavera socks but there are a couple of other nice free patterns


Free patterns I have knit at least once & loved are:

- Zarathustra mosaic socks (

- Speckled Space socks (

- Reversible Cowl — this looks great with one side a crazy variegated or stripy color and the other a solid (

- Mosaic cowl (

- Storyteller cowl — great for highly variegated yarns (

- Traveling Cable hat ( Knit the adult size in a sportweight and it was perfect for a ten year old

- Phalanges fingerless gloves (


Springtime Bandit

Boneyard Shawl (you can knit it with or without the ridges)

Tin Can Knits' Simple Collection

Sara Lee Albright

one of my favorite sock patterns is "Down the Rabbit Hole" :

Ravelry -

Joanne Cole

I have been using Blueberry Waffle for years.

It will work with solid, tonal, or super stripe yarn. It has the stretchiness of k2p2 ribbing, but is less boring. Plus it is not too fussy for my husband. Works for any weight yarn -- multiple of 4 stitches is your only rule.

Susan Backus patterns are always free.


My very favorite sock pattern is Ann Budd's Diagonal Rib Socks

I'm knitting a pair now, and according to Ravelry it's my 24th!
