Welcome to MrsLuedeke.com, a place where you get free-of-charge, popular culture knitting patterns!
I’ve always been fascinated by the idea that I can make something custom – something that I can’t just go out and buy in the store. When I discovered colorwork knitting, a world of possibilities opened before my eyes!
I also discovered that it’s really hard to make a hand-knitted present for some people, especially guys. Most guys I know prefer “plain Jane”, non-custom, not-exciting-to-knit wearable items.
It was a hard pill to swallow. I love making gifts. There is a lot more time and thought that goes into a hand-knit item than something I can grab last minute at the store. I care about these people, and I want to give them a gift that MEANS something.
Enter pop culture. Superheroes, fantasy, video games. There are so many things that I’ve found that the guys (and gals) in my life appreciate. So I decided to start putting them into knitting patterns!
It makes me smile knowing that that special someone is going to get something that not only I lovingly made for them, but it’s also going to be something they want. WIN-WIN! I hope my patterns give you the same experience.
I always love feedback, good or bad, because it helps me make better patterns. Don’t hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a message on Ravelry. I enjoy hearing from you!
