I am always amazed how many free crochet patterns I find when I do a search for one on the web. Here is a listing of some of the best sites for free crochet patterns. I think you will enjoy browsing through these sites.

You'll find free crochet patterns for afghans, baby patterns, hats, mittens, gloves, shawls, and the list goes on and on. If you crochet with yarn or thread you'll find just the right pattern.

Here are some sites you might not have seen before and some you will be familiar with. Get out your hooks and some yarn or thread and get busy. Don't forget the baby shower, Christmas gifts and more that you need to crochet.

Meladora's site is a newer site, but she has quite a lot of free patterns already and she is adding new ones all the time. It is well worth a visit.
