READER BEWARE! The following post may induce a sudden separation from reality. The knowledge you are about to obtain may bring on a sudden loss of judgment in time and project management. If you are on the cusp of being an insane crochet queen, this might just be the straw that breaks the camel’s back!
While I am all for purchasing a pattern that blows me away, modern technology has opened the doors wide to the availability of FREE PATTERNS! A simple Google search for FREE CROCHET PATTERNS will get you endless results; some worth following, some not so much. I’ve gathered a list of some of the sites I have found to be priceless, literally!
PATTERN FOCUSED SITES
AllFreeCrochet is a multi-purpose resource. Along with free patterns you have access to tutorials, a blog and giveaways. There’s more too. Some of the patterns are available on the site and are printable, while others link to websites.
Though it isn’t required to access the free patterns, I highly recommend signing up. It will give you the availability to save the patterns you love and receive patterns in your inbox.
Free and paid patterns but you can tailor your search for just free patterns.
Ravelry is a multi-purpose resource. This site requires you to sign in before you can view. Totally worth it. They provide resources to save the patterns you like, post your own patterns, post and save projects you are working on. You can create a library and rearrange the items. Many of the patterns are available in PDF form, while others link to websites. Definitely worth checking out.
