Great, Thanks A Lot. I Have Been Scouring Charity Shops For Patterns For Toddlers. I Don't Want To Pay Several Pounds For A Booklet When I Am Only Going To Use One Pattern Out Of A Dozen In The Booklet.

Try www.ravelry.com great for patterns you need to sign up but it's free. Also you can get stacks of help from people there.

www.knitty.com is another good site for free patterns.
Can't remember when I last bought a pattern.

Here are my top recommendations:

1. http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/kategori_oversikt.php

2. http://www.berroco.com/pattern_library.html

3. Jessica Tromp's fantastic website will give you a pattern for any type of jumper or cardigan - whether it's for a man, woman, child or dog. You can even mix and match with her cables, fancy stitches and panels, fair isles, arans and other options if you want something different to stocking stitch.

http://www.jessica-tromp.nl/freeknit...csknitwear.htm

4. If you want to knit a basic sweater (and choose from different styles of sleeve and neck), then put your measurements into the Knitting Fool site and it will generate the information you need in a simple pattern:

This is a wonderful find, thanks to all who submitted links as I love knitting. Sadly, the cost of balls of wool have outweighed the ready made jumpers now but if anyone has a cheap wool source, I'd love to know. knitting has recently been recommended for depression sufferers and also hyperactivity can be channelled with knitting.

Try any local Poundshops or bargain shops. I think you will be surprised at how cheap some places sell wool.

Knitting Daily (from Interweave press) also has some free patterns - you need to register but it's free. They also have some really useful posts about shaping, and techniques etc. There is also a pattern store but you can search just for the free ones.

I can't recommend Ravelry highly enough either, they have links to hundreds of downloadable free patterns. They have loads of brilliant groups to join too from Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Johnny Depp, you name it, there's a group for it. If not, start one, I did but I'm not telling you what it is;-))

Thanks everybody. I haven't done any knitting for years and years either. I have cut and pasted all the web links copied them into word and saved in a folder for future use.

Great

You could do as the did in years gone by and get an old jumper, unpick it and re knit the wool....jumble sales are still a good source of cheap clothing....went to one the other day and all clothing was 10p and got a 1950s kidney shaped side table for 50p!!!
