5 Best Free Knitting & Crochet Patterns April 2022

As the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers” and if there’s any truth, then we are in for a rainy month. But rain doesn't necessarily equal doom and gloom. That’s why I’ve rounded up some fun and colourful patterns to brighten up your April. After all, another month, another 30 days of knitting!

1. Here is a pattern for dishcloths by @Knit on Designs by Deb Buckingham. Knitted in fun and trendy spring colours, these are sure to spruce up your kitchen and bathroom! It’s easy to make and perfect for beginners.


Suggested products:

  • HiyaHiya Interchangeable straights are the perfect product for this pattern. They come in a variety of sizes and you can pick your desired needle length so you can make as big (or as small) of a dishcloth as you’d like. I recommend pairing them with the Steel Interchangeable Tips for this project.

2. This next pattern is for your furry friend. It’s a warm snuggle jumper decorated with an intricate cable knit design and is perfect for intermediate knitters or knitters who want to get into cable knitting. This cable knit dog (or cat) jumper by @Drops Design might be a little warm for your pup right now, but it’s never too early to start knitting for the winter!


Suggested product:

  • HiyaHiya Steel Premium Plus Interchangeable Set is the perfect set for designs like this that require knitting in the round. This set comes with eight different sizes of interchangeable tips and seven different lengths of cables so you can knit for dogs big and small.

3. Perfect for beginner knitters who want to learn new techniques, this Knitting 101 Scarf by @Louise Robert is next on the list for fun patterns. I mean, what’s more fun than the Frankenstein of scarves?


Suggested product:

  • HiyaHiya Interchangeable straights are great for beginners and allow knitters to change between length of needle without buying a bunch of different needles. Pair them with the Bamboo Interchangeable Tips – which provide a good grip for yarn – to create a beginner-friendly straight knitting needle.

4. October isn’t the only month for pumpkins! This cute knitted pumpkin by @Hannah Maier makes for a great house decor item perched upon the mantle of a fireplace or a windowsill, or can be made into a lovely doorstop by stuffing it with a bag full of sand. 


Suggested Product:

  • For the crocheted version, the HiyaHiya Aluminium Crochet Hooks are my go-to. They are lightweight and the hook catches on to the yarn with ease, taking some stress off your hands when crocheting. 

5. Last, but not least, is this woodlands baby mobile by @Amanda Berry. This adorable knitting and crocheting project features animals like squirrels and hedgehogs and is the perfect accessory to any nursery. 


Suggested Product:

  • HiyaHiya Crochet Hook Set comes with 15 aluminium and two acrylic crochet hooks, all in different sizes – perfect for any crocheting project.
