Updated on May 30, 2017

I've been crocheting since I was a little girl. Since then I've designed for magazines and offer free patterns at my site.

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.

Free Crochet Pattern Sites offers a lot of tutorials besides their free crochet patterns.

All Free Crochet

You'll find a lot of patterns that are now archived at this site. Photos of everything is included, so you'll be able to see the projects before going to the pages.

Art of Tangle

This site offers some really amazing patterns in PDF format for you to print. You've got to view her free page.

Barb's Free Crochet Patterns

The site offers page after page of free pattern links all indexed, so it is easy to find what you want. The site includes everything from afghans, baby clothing, baby blankets, ladies clothing and more. Also included are the site owner's own free designs.

Bev's Country Cottage

Bev's site offers many different patterns, but my favorite search there is for baby patterns. She has a lot of them.

Crochet Memories

The site offers a large collection of free patterns.

Crochet Pattern Central

Anyone that crochets probably already knows about this site. It is one of the most popular sites on the web. A free pattern link directory if offered.

Free Patterns

You'll need to signup for membership at this site, but it is well worth your time. Many free patterns are offered.

Lion Brand Yarn

Lion Brand features a huge list of free patterns. You will need to apply as a member, but membership to the site is free. You'll then receive emails whenever they post new patterns.

Meladora's Creations

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.

Red Heart Yarn

Red Heart offers a huge selection of free patterns for just about any category you can dream up. The patterns all use their Red Heart yarn, but you can substitute by using the same weight. Red Heart is a less expensive yarn and is easy to find at most discount stores that carry craft supplies.

Sue's Knitting and Crochet

Sue offers the largest collection of free slipper patterns that I've found on the web.

Yarn Lover's Room

The site offers a lot of vintage crochet patterns.
