What should I look out for in a free knitting pattern?
Many providers of free knitting instructions require you to register on their website, leave your email address or even pay something in a roundabout way. You should of course pay attention to this and not be fooled. Anyone who offers free knitting instructions should really offer them free of charge.
It is important to pay attention to this:
- be easy to download
- do not need registration
- Contains overview information about the material
- Be written in understandable German
All of this information about the free knitting instructions should be available before registering or downloading. Otherwise you run the risk of having given out your email address for a possibly not so good manual.
Although this is not necessarily the case with providers of free knitting patterns, one thing should still be observed: viruses and Trojans. If you download something and open it on your computer, you also open your system to malware that is hidden in the document or the knitting instructions. Therefore you should consider the following tips:
- Pay attention to https, only websites with https are really secure pages
- Better not download knitting instructions from any websites outside of the US and Europe
- Only download from websites that are really about knitting and knitting instructions
- Only open .pdf .doc .jpg .jpeg files. NEVER open .exe files
But enough of the hints and tips, here you will find a list for downloading free knitting instructions.
