Our knitting patterns
All our kits contain a knitting pattern in the form of a small illustrated booklet. It provides all the step-by-step explanations to succeed in the pattern you have chosen to knit.
Our knitting and crochet patterns have been carefully prepared by our designers and contain all the technical information you will need to knit the pattern:
- the material needed,
- the stitches used,
- explanations for each piece
- dimensioned diagrams
It is the essential tool for successful knitting. Take the time to read the first few pages carefully. If necessary, refer to the table of abbreviations to memorise them.
Explanations of knitting
Before starting, read the explanations once. Select the size you are going to knit and highlight the corresponding operations. This preparation will make it easier for you to read during the knitting process.
All diagrams are given in centimetres. Take your measurements to check that the size you have chosen is the right one. You can help yourself by consulting our knitting size guide.
If you are unfamiliar with certain notions, you can consult the numerous articles on the blog, which detail the basic knitting techniques or refer to our tutorials
Your personal notes
While you are knitting, use the "Your personal notes" page to write down your decreases or increases, or note where you are when you stop knitting. Later on, you will find it easier to find the step you need to take.
Make a knitting sample
Before you start knitting, take the time to make a knitting sample of a few stitches to check that you are getting the same measurements as shown in the pattern, in stitch count and row count. To help you make your swatch, see the blog post: How to knitting a sample.
If you are knitting looser, try using a lower half number of needles, or if you are knitting tightly, try using a higher half number of needles. Do not skip this important step!
The stitches page of the pattern explains the steps to be taken row by row. Before you start knitting, practice the stitches on a few stitches if you are not familiar with them. Familiarise yourself with the statements until you have memorised the gestures to be reproduced. The mistakes you make will always be time saved for the next step.
Read the stitch advice carefully, it will help you to find your way through the succession of stitches.
Maintenance of your knitting
At the end of the booklet, there is a section devoted to the maintenance of your knitting. All the tips you need to keep your knitting in perfect condition for a long time are given. If you would like more information, you can consult our care guide.
Keep your booklets
When you have finished your pattern, keep the booklet in a safe place. You can use it again if you want to knit the pattern again. You just need to recommend the yarn. And why not in a different colour!
