My 20 Favorite Free Crochet Patterns of 2011

The internet is an excellent resource for free crochet patterns. You can find just about any pattern that you are looking for, including items for the home, kitchen and bath, as well as clothing and accessories for adults, children and babies. A large number of them are being added on a daily basis, not only by well-known yarn companies, but there are also many individual artists who enjoy sharing their free crochet patterns.

With so many patterns, the chances of ever seeing them all is nearly impossible. But I came across a large number of them in 2011, and also designed a few of my own.

In this hub I would like to share some of my favorite crochet patterns of the year. It was already difficult for me to decide between some of them, but it got even more difficult to decide between the top 20. So I picked my 20 favorite free crochet patterns of 2011, and here they are in alphabetical order...

3 Layer Crochet Wedding Cake Pattern - Squidoo Lens Master "MomwithAHook"

I don’t think that this a new pattern created in 2011, but it is so beautiful that I wanted to share it with you. The cake has three layers, with each layer a tad bit smaller than the previous in order to resemble a real wedding cake. Also, the cake is topped with a beautiful rose. 3 Layer Crochet Wedding Cake Pattern

Aesthetic Hooded Scarf - Crochet Dreamz

      That't a great idea! I think you are allowed to use the picture as long as you don't post the pattern. I'll add them in some time next week.

      Thank you for the tip!

      Thanks for all the patterns! =) If you have done any of them yourself (or have the right to use their photo!) I'd love to see pictures in some of the hubs about them. I wouldn't have to click on all the links then. xD
