Best Knitting and Crochet Patterns for Girls

By Amy Sosbe 4 days ago


We have so many beautiful patterns for girls to choose from here at The Knitting Network. To make your life easier, we’ve gathered together some of our favorites, from stylish boleros to fun mermaid-tail blankets!

We’ve given you a helpful link to each of the patterns and all our patterns show you the sizes that are included, the amount of yarn needed and a handy link to the yarn. So you can spend less time shopping and more time knitting (or crocheting).

Many of the patterns in our line-up are available as either a PDF, so you can download them and print them at home, or as a pattern leaflet to be sent out in the post.

This sweet crochet dress knitted in Peter Pan 4 Ply, is perfect for the summer, or paired with some cosy tights and a warm cardigan it is just as practical for those chillier days.


With it’s lovely delicate lacey design, this bolero by Wendy would be perfectly matched with a beautiful dress for that special occasion.


The lovely vintage, timeless design of this cardigan and jumper pattern would be loved by any little girl and can be knitted for a newborn right through to age 5.

Cosy up in marvelous mermaid style with this Mermaid Tail blanket by Hayfield! We’re sure this would be top of the present list for any aspiring mermaid!

This bright and beautiful cardigan, jumper and scarf pattern is knitted in Stylecraft Batik Swirl DK, which gives this great effect without the effort! The variety of stitches and bold colours adds a fun spin to the staple jumper and cardigan.

Dresses aren’t just for the summer and these sweater dresses make a welcome change to her wardrobe on those days when you need to wrap up a bit warmer.

This pretty, short sleeved cardigan is a simple knit and would brighten up any outfit. Made that little bit more special with the sweet flower motif and button detail.

Who doesn’t love a poncho?! Choose from either the classic tasseled poncho or the poncho with hood. Both are easy knits and are bursting with style!


We hope you feel inspired to give some of our girls knitting and crochet patterns a try. Don't forget, all our parcels are sent out in eco-friendly packaging and we price match our competitors' to bring you a Best Price Guarantee across all our yarns. Happy crafting!

Granny Square Pompom Blanket with Sweet Sharna

By Amy Last 18 days ago

Nothing is more satisfying to crochet than the humble granny square. Throw in a pompom or two (well, maybe a few more...) and you've got our granny square pompom blanket - a must-make for all budding crocheters!

We're delighted to have teamed up with instagram crochet-queen, Sweet Sharna, to bring a touch of her gorgeous style to this popular design. Here, Sharna takes you through the steps to learn how to join your granny squares as well as tackling the pompom edging.

To get started, you can find our granny square pompom blanket pattern here.

You can buy the colour pack for the yarn in Sharna's chosen shades here.

"The colours I’ve chosen for this blanket are my all-time favourites, using them on their own or mixed together," explains Sharna. "Mustard yellow can make a great statement among a more muted colour scheme, and adding some pretty pink tones gives it that clash that I love. I love the surprise that you get with this unusual colour combo."

Once you have your pattern and yarn, follow these easy steps to complete your granny square blanket.



We hope you enjoy having a go at this blanket. We would love to see your projects in progress, so do come and find us on instagram or Facebook and share your photos with us.

Happy hooking!
