12 Ageless Knit Designs

When we photograph the samples of our free pattern designs, we show them on women that are usually not too young and not too old. We’re hoping that you can visualize the design for yourself or for someone that will get it as a gift, no matter what the age. Sometimes the age of the model or a color can influence whether you see the piece on a teen, a millennial, a boomer or whatever generation. But wearables are often a reflection of personal style, not age. The way the item is accessorized and worn can greatly change the way it looks.

I have chosen 12 of our knit designs with simple lines and ageless style. They can be worn easily by all ages, from teen to any decade of your life. This is just a sampling….I’m sure there are many more designs that go easily from generation to generation.

So I hope when you look through the free pattern photos you will remember not to be inhibited by the age of the model. Try to see yourself wearing the item, perhaps in the same color, or perhaps in a different color. You can hold up the ball of yarn next to your face and take a selfie to see how you like the color on you. You’ll find that knitting the perfect combination of color and pattern style is a wonderful creative outlet.
So don’t let the photos on the Red Heart site tell you what to do…try doing your own thing!
