Free Patterns For Crochet and Knitting

Updated on January 2, 2012

As I was looking around today online at some crochet and knitting patterns, I couldn't help but notice all of the awesome free crochet and knitting tutorials out there. Knitting and crochet is definitely the thing I am least experienced with in the craft arena but I've wanted to learn for quite some time now. I love looking through all the beautiful crocheted blankets my grandmother made and have fond memories of bundling up with some of them as a child. She made some gorgeous pillows, too. These things make such great family heirlooms. Unlike my grandma, I don't know anything beyond a single chain stitch but I can still gather up some great free patterns for some of you who are much more experienced. From small toys to wearables, I found a ton of really cute, free knitting and crochet projects!

Crocheted House Slippers

I really do love these cute crocheted house slippers, where the free pattern can be found at Little House by the Sea. Wouldn't these be cute with some buttons or some crocheted flowers attached? They look really cozy and comfortable. These would make such a great gift.

Romantic Ruffle Scarf

Romantic Ruffled Scarf

Look at this beautiful, flowing, ruffly pink scarf!  I love this- can't believe there is a free pattern for it and they even have it marked as easy.   Go to All Free Knitting to get the free pattern for this beautiful scarf. This will definitely be one I will try later on down the road when I learn a bit more about knitting.  I really do love this.

Pretty Flower Scarf

Beautiful Flower Embellished Scarf

OH MY GOSH is all I can say! I can't believe how beautiful this flowered scarf is and that there is a free pattern for it. Don't you just love it!? I found this freebie at Maries Cozy Corner. I love it in the blue but would be really cute in any color I think.

At Mimoknits I found this nice tutorial with pattern to knit a nice coffee cozy. I love the colors used for these. Very cute!

Before I end the hub I want to inlude this link for Crochet Pattern Central. There are tons of free projects (anything you could possibly think of) there and it's definitely a place checking out if you are looking for some great free patterns. I hope you have enjoyed this hub and I have inspired you with some of these cute projects.   Finding all this cute stuff actually inspired me to want to learn how to knit and crochet more than ever so to help myself out (and hopefully others) I plan to compile a hub with a list of free patterns for beginners in the near future. So until then..

Happy Knitting and Crocheting!

      cheerfulnuts- Hi! It's great to "see" you! I'm so glad you enjoyed these tutorials! Crocheting is fun... my grandma showed me how to do a single stitch and I've always wanted to learn more since. Hopefully you will have a little time to do some crocheting... it's really calming. Those little bears are super cute!! Hope all is well with you :)

      Hello Jamie! I have been thinking about learning crochet, and I remembered that you have a few hubs about crochet and craft tutorials. I really love the tiny bears! They're so cute! I have saved the tutorial in my laptop and hope I can find time to do that! :D

      Awesome hub Jamie! I'm only familiar with the single stitch also. I knitted blankies for my daughters and granddaughter but haven't created anything in 5 years. Love the Curls Of Sunshine :))

      Hi vocalcoach! What a nice comment, thank you so much. Yes, I agree.. I LOVE the scarf and hat above that have the crocheted flower embellishments..they really are amazing and so CUTE!! They have a sort of vintage look to them. I really tried to look for things that were a little out of the ordinary.

      Wow.. you are in Nashville, TN! How awesome is that.. would LOVE to visit there one day. I wonder if it is scorching hot there like it is in Texas today (or this past 2 weeks for that matter!) Would love to visit TN for sure.. looks so pretty there.

      Thanks again for the very sweet comment!

      Well, you angel, you - You have done it again. Bookmarking this as a favorite. I want soooooooo much to learn how to follow patterns for knitting and crocheting. I just knitted my last row on a potholder, and haven't a clue how to finish it...urgggh! If you run into a video that teaches this - puhleeeze let me know.

      I went crazy for the photo on the "jewelry framed organizer" Coming in 2nd, was the "Anthropologie knitted hat" and the "flowered embelished scarf" is amazing!

      I love your motivation as it seeps up throught the written word. Heck - you've got to come to Nashville, Tn!

      have fewer resources to address these wonderful crafts. I mean, although I would like to knit or crochet I can not find perfect material (wool) suitable to my needs.

      Enjoyed your hub. Crochet and knitting are really enjoying crafts to explore but, we have less resources to try these wonderful crafts. I mean though I would like to knit or crochet I can't find perfect materials(wool) suitable to my needs. We always have to buy low quality as well as unpleasant colored wools in our area. In that point, I envy with you.

      By the way, thanks for your wonderful hub.

      Knitting and crocheting are a couple of crafty areas that I haven't explored yet either (and probably don't need to as I already have a billion other crafty interests). But this is a great collection! I'm sure that knitters and crocheters will find something here that they like.
