The winter months can be cold and dreary, with everyone stuck inside - but it's also the perfect time for indoor family fun! Around here that means games, and that's something it seems you can never have enough of, whether you're inside during a blizzard or a heat wave, or just riding in the back seat of the car. So let's kick the month off with 10 free crochet game patterns!

Thank you so much for including my little penguins in your round up! There tons of adorable ideas here... I'm dying to break out my needles and hooks after just browsing through these creative patterns.

Hello! And you're welcome! 😀
This is a wonderful site with many beautiful choices, thanks for sharing
I can't find it in the pattern, but what size hook for pass the piggies?
3.5 mm (E) 🙂
I wasn't able to access the Ring Toss pattern. The page turned up blank on my phone. Attempts to find it on the main site were a failure. I suspect the mobile version of the site is temperamental or shy.
It looks like an older website so I suspect you're correct Dorie!
I made the penguin bowling game back 5 years ago and there was a mistake in row 3 and as far as i can tell it hasn't been corrected. I did leave a message there on the pattern site back then. I made them for my dgs who has 5 oldersisters and one older brother and they all loved "bowling" with him
Thank you for letting us know, Gemma!
