I generally create my own patterns, especially if it's something I'm going to be selling. But, there are times when I need some inspiration, or I just can not figure out a pattern on my own. There are the sites I use for inspiration, for patterns, for how-to's, for all around great crochet wisdom. If you're a yarn yanker like me, maybe they could help you too! And you can't beat the price... FREE!
www.CrochetPatternCentral.com - I have seriously used this website for YEARS. I love it. You can find just about anything on here. If you've never checked it out before, you should.
http://www.free-crochet.com/?source=039FCP - Okay, so I haven't used this one. I just found it. But I'm totally excited to check it out. I'll let you know how it goes.
http://www.craftown.com/crochet.htm - Here is another website I've used for a long time, though not quite as much as Crochet Pattern Central.
http://crochet.about.com/library/blfreepatts1.htm - This is the last one I use regularly. You can find just about anything on here.
These are my FAVORITES. If you have some, list them in the comments and I will include them in a mass list! Do you make your own patterns? For free or for purchase, let me know. I'll include them too! Thanks.
