I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time looking at crochet patterns… whether it’s to put together a collection for this site, find a pattern for someone who isn’t having any luck, or for my own crochet down time. Ravelry makes it easy to find the pattern you’re looking for – and everyday I talk to people who don’t know how to use it. So here’s how to use Ravelry to find a crochet or knit pattern – you’ll love it!
Last holiday season I designed the Christmas Tree Coffee Cozy – the perfect quick pattern for the coffee (or hot cocoa!) lovers on your gift list!

Here on Moogly I’ve designed a lot of free crochet patterns, with hopefully many more to come! And one of my favorite things to design are bags. Purses, clutches, soap sacks, market bags, pencil cases, totes – I love them all!
