Free Patterns For Crochet and Knitting
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 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.
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.
Berry Pie Beret
Look at this free hat pattern I found at Abigals Crafts How To. I love the style of this hat.. They call it a Berry Pie Beret. So cute!
Antropologie Knock Off
Another hat, I just love hats! I love the look of this one made by dansk at Craftster.org. Kind of reminds me of the flower embellished scarf up above.. She posted great instructions right down to the flowers and embellishments on the crocheted hat. This is a knock off of the Anthropologie Cloche hat.
Cute Lil Devil
Gotta love this cute little devil with the free pattern at Lion Brand. This place has TONS of great free crotchet, knitting and craft patterns. You will need to sign up first but it's easy and quick. It took me less than a minute. I was quite surprised at the sheer volume of really cute free patterns there for all of you crocheters and knitters!
Heart to Heart Pillow
Go to redheart.com where you can download the printable instructions for these adorable Heart to Heart pillows. Who doesn't love a heart pillow?
Free Winter Hat Patterns
Found the free pattern for these cute tabogans over at Free Craft Unlimited. These look like they may be on the easy side to make.. but they sure are cute! Can't help but picture them with some little flowers attached or something like that.
Fuzzy Pink Scarf
A cute free scarf pattern at Numei.com. what do you think? I was looking in Wal-Mart and they have quite a selection of this fuzzy yarn. It's so soft. I bet you could probably whip up a matching hat in no time.
Look at this beautiful artist satchel complete with free crochet pattern at The Daily Crocheter. They also have one in red, white and blue that was really pretty. I love the fringe on this- really cute!
Cute Little Bears
Visit Curls of Sunshine for some great freebie crochet patterns. I LOVE these cute little animals. She has some other really cute stuff as well.. be sure to check it out.
Big Funky Hat
Okay, one can never have too many hats, right? I love this hat with the free pattern found at Alarming Female. They call it the Big Funky Hat! These hats are really popular right now..
Crocheted or knitted Jewelry Frame Organizer
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!
