Fun knitting patterns and knitted items

Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    Welcome to Softyarn Designs, for knitters and non-knitters alike. Our knitting patterns and knitted items allow you make something special or give a unique gift for a baby shower, birthday, or holiday.

Many of the knitting patterns are for beginners but plenty to offer a little something extra for more experienced knitters. Ponytail hats are a Softyarn Designs specialty. In fact, the reason I began designing patterns is that sometimes I wear a high ponytail, sometimes low, sometimes in between. But the ponytail hat patterns I saw had just one spot for the ponytail. With the button band design in Softyarn Designs patterns, you can wear your ponytail (or bun) how you like.

For non-knitters, you can still have the unique look and cozy feel of a handmade knitted item without having to knit it yourself. And sometimes even knitters just want to buy something pre-made :)

Knitting soft things with soft yarn - What could be better?

A friend taught me to knit when I was 16 years old. I recall my first project clearly. Man, was that ugly! Things have improved a lot since then.

I began designing my own patterns almost from the start. And once I had kids, they wanted sweaters with sharks, Martians, frog ponds, boats... It was so satisfying to be able to design and knit whatever they asked for.

Eventually I decided to write up a pattern for one of the things I knit the most, but never saw patterns for: my particular type of ponytail hats. The ponytail hats that I saw patterns for only had one spot for the ponytail to emerge. I don't want a hat to be the boss of my ponytail placement! My designs have buttons so that you can wear a ponytail in any position: high, low, or in between.

I love seeing how knitters' creativity takes the same pattern and makes it look different every time. Please tag me if you post pictures - I'd love to see what you make! I am @softyarndesigns on Facebook and Instagram.

And please don't hesitate to get in touch if you ever have a question about one of my patterns.
