I'm always looking for beautiful patterns that I can use either for my own use or for me to make and sell. In order to sell the finished product from a pattern that's not mine, I have to make sure that the writer/publisher has given permission. That's part of the reason that I LOVE the patterns from the Drops Design website. Not only are these patterns absolutely gorgeous, they can all be used to make and sell a finished product. You just have to list that the pattern came from there. I can't wait to make some of these designs. I'm sure that they will sell well on my website. The best part, though? They're all free!!!!
I've been on a scarf kick lately, but because it's so hot here lately, I've been on a LIGHTWEIGHT scarf kick. :) I was looking thru their patterns yesterday and found a few that I can't wait to make.
I love this one. The shape is perfect for an accent scarf and I love the stripes. There is some great sock yarn out there that this pattern would be perfect for. The whole thing is knit in stockinette stitch and I normally hate how it curls on the sides, but I like how it looks on this scarf. It adds a nice touch to the shape. It is knit from side to side and I think it would end up being a quick knit.
There's also this scarf with a beautiful openweave knit. I think this would be perfect over a sleeveless shirt or tank. Again it has the triangle shape. This one is knit from the top down, so you start with a lot of stitches and decrease on the way down.
I love both of these patterns and I can't wait to get started on them!
I'll post pictures as soon as I have them done!
