The elegant creations by PetiteKnit embody a simple Nordic aesthetic that resonates with her devoted followers. Within her patterns, Mette offers clear instructions accessible to all, irrespective of whether you're a novice or an experienced knitter. As you can see below, we've tested quite a few PetiteKnit patterns over the years. We cannot stress enough how fantastically well written the patterns are for new knitters.
If you are a beginner we highly recommend trying out the Novice, Ankers or Sunday series. The Novice series in particular was tailored specifically for beginners.
