Sirdar Knitting Patterns
The Sirdar Company has been producing yarn for over 130 years. At first, the firm made these yarns mainly for industrial production. Eventually, they, like many other firms, realised that there was a market for the yarn from people who knitted at home.
In 1934, they began to market their yarns to home knitters. It was at this stage that they started to produce patterns as well. By the 1960s, they began to be featured in women's magazines. For Sirdar, this was a turning point; their following became strong enough to allow them to focus exclusively on home knitters.
Today, Sirdar is still a very popular brand. Their patterns and wools are a good mix of modern and traditional, so they appeal to every kind of knitter.
The designers at Sirdar are constantly coming up with new wools, and many of their patterns are specifically designed for use with these new materials. They produce interesting textures and patterns, making it easy to produce modern clothing and soft furnishings, as well as items that are more traditional.
Sirdar knitting patterns are particularly good for beginners. Their instructions are exceptionally easy to follow; making it is easy for a knitter to progress from being a novice to an accomplished knitter. It is easy for a hobby knitter to make toys, blankets, scarves, gloves, cardigans, dresses and many other garments. Using Sirdar knitting patterns, home crafters can easily make beautiful gifts for friends and family.
