Free Patterns

Free or Paid

Whether free or paid, all designs are still protected by copyright.

Some of these are free PDF downloads, others are free to view on my website, or they have a free YouTube component.

Most of them also have a paid PDF option which is an excellent way to say thank you if you’ve enjoyed a pattern and are able to contribute.

Other ways to support a designer who offers free patterns are to invite others to visit the site where you can view the pattern (such as a link to YouTube or to my website).

I usually use my free patterns as a way to teach a new technique or to create an accessible crochet-a-long (CAL).

Interlocking & Mosaic

Most designs comes with an interlocking crochet option and an overlay mosaic crochet option; HOWEVER, sometimes the free option is only available in one technique and at other times you’ll get more than one option for free.

Doctor Who

The entire Doctor Who series I created is available for free (because that was the BBC’s caveat when I asked for permission to use their content in my designs).

Those patterns arem’t listed here because they have their own dedicated page.

Free patterns are an excellent way to test whether you like a designer’s style.

After you have checked out my well-written patterns and amazing charts 😉 you should sign up for my newsletter so you never miss a new pattern release or free tutorial! 

Plus, you’ll have access to special discount codes!
