I have 70 crochet pattern designs that include free, paid, and unavailable crochet patterns. Holy crap! That’s quite the number. I started designing patterns about 14 years ago, and while I love what I’ve been doing lately, I’m cringing at quite a few of these… okay, more than a few. Some. Of. Them. Are. So. Bad. It’s time to thin out the horrible, and reformat the ones worth saving.
So many years ago, I designed this hat. I didn’t have a winter hat at the time and thought this would be awesome. It was totally awesome, aside from my lack of experience writing and designing crochet patterns. The hat was always a little snug, and I’m pretty sure the yardage wasn’t figured out correctly. We were holding 2 different yarns together as one (which I’m a huge fan of), but it seemed like the hat was harder than it had to be in those areas.
It’s been so busy around here. It’s like creativity is oozing out of my fingers… which kind of sounds gross, but it isn’t. I keep telling Hubs that this is phase 1 of my master plan. I’m diggin’ it though. It’s been wonderful feeling motivated and excited to make new pieces. Woot!
It’s back! Free Pattern Monday… I missed it as much as you did. I’m leaving this here for you today as I’m on vacation mode. While I will not be crocheting these patterns this week (hopefully soon though)… I hope you guys and gals will take the opportunity to get your hook on some yarn and whip up a few of these. They’re so much fun!
I fell off the face of the earth a little with the Free Pattern Friday Monday posts. Between the craft show and just feeling a little BLAH, this wasn’t important for a little while. I’m feeling recharged though, and we’re back on a brand new day. I think Mondays need to have free patterns on them. Fridays are kind of cool just because it’s Friday. Mondays can be hard sometimes.
This week I’m going to be a little all over the place with our free patterns today. I’m blaming it on vacation brain; it’s a beautiful vacation brain to have this week. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and next week I’ll be back on track with things.

There’s no real rhyme or reason to this week’s picks of free patterns. All of them just appealed to me that I had to get them in, I don’t think it matters much.
With the weekend coming up, I’ve been taking the time to stop working… usually around Friday afternoon… to browse for things I’d like to eventually make myself. This week I found these four designs that I’m loving. They are all free patterns too, so it’s a double win!
