Purl Avenue is a free online knitting community where knitters have access to free patterns, tutorials, giveaways and more!

Simple-Slouchy-Hat-with-Pom.jpgPurl Avenue began in 2010 as A Tight-Knit Gathering blog with the intent of exchanging knitting ideas and techniques with other knitters via the internet.

In early 2013, A Tight-Knit Gathering got a face lift and a new identity: Purl Avenue. Purl Avenue is not just a blog, it is a knitting website loaded with knitting freebies such as patterns, tutorials and giveaways. New patterns, tutorials and content are consistently being added to the site in  hopes of enriching the knitting community with new knitting knowledge and ideas.

 Please feel free to browse our site and check us out on:


All patterns on Purl Avenue are free but we cannot stress this enough:

Patterns are intended for personal use only and NOT selling or re-selling purposes. Please be considerate when using our patterns by allowing us credit for our hard work.

As you can see, there are ads on this website. I do have a day job and I am by no means wealthy so I have to put ads on here to keep Purl Avenue running. All proceeds from ads go to web hosting, domain fees, website maintenance costs and knitting supplies for patterns and giveaways.

Thank you for you support and happy knitting!
