Jessie Rayot of Jessie At Home offers a number of beautifully-designed crochet patterns for free. Our current favorite is the Juliette Shawl, a flirty and feminine shawl worked up using a single mini-skein yarn pack from Frabjous Fibers in a terrific selection of blue and green hues. This lovely circular crochet shawl pattern uses simple stitches like single crochet and double crochet but is considered an intermediate pattern.
Fun fact: The Juliette Shawl is named after Juliette Gordon Low who founded the group that eventually became known as The Girl Scouts.
2. Happy Harlequin Crochet Blanket by Felted Button

Susan Carlson of Felted Button is another amazing crochet designer who offers several great free patterns through Bluprint. We especially love her brightly colored crochet blanket patterns. The Happy Harlequin is aptly named because making it is such a happy experience thanks to all of those colors that just bring a smile to your face as you craft. It combines easy square motifs with chevron-style edging for a terrific twist on classic designs.
Fun fact: The Happy Harlequin crochet blanket uses 22 different colors of DK weight yarn. However, Susan says that you should feel free to use up whatever is in your stash when making this blanket.
3. Cotton Market Tote by LazyTCrochet

Ohio-based crocheter Tricia of LazyTCrochet is a self-taught designer who creates many beautiful patterns for crochet garments and women’s accessories. This cotton crochet market bag is one of her most popular free crochet patterns. Cotton yarn holds its shape well so it’s great for tote bags.
Fun fact: Tricia says that she chose to make a short handle instead of a shoulder strap because she finds this to be a more comfortable choice for carrying heavy items including groceries and library books.
4. Really Easy Slouchy Beanie by JennLikesYarn

AG Handmades has a number of adorable free crochet hat and headband patterns. This easy crochet beanie is designed to be a beginner crocheter’s introduction to shaping. What makes it so easy? No need to count stitches! Instead of decreasing near the crown, you’ll switch to a smaller hook, which creates the cozy slouch.
Fun fact: This is currently one of the Top 20 Free Crocheting Patterns on Bluprint.
5. Daisy Coaster by Whiskers and Wool

Amy Gaines designed both knit and crochet amigurumi patterns. Most of these are for sale at affordable prices but she makes a few of them available for free. This cute crochet kitten pattern is a great one because it’s actually two patterns in one – you can make the kitten you see here or a sitting version of the cat.
Fun fact: This crochet pattern is worked in a spiral of single crochet stitches (rather than in traditional rounds).
