One of my favorite free crochet patterns you'll find on Craftsy is the Harriett Square from Gourmet Crochet - which would be a fantastic addition to any Moogly Crochet-a-long blankets!
I also love the Little Sister Hat, by Linda Permann - I met Linda at the Knit and Crochet Show in Manchester this year and it was so exciting! Such a gorgeous pattern from a talented designer!
And how beautiful are these Basic Baby Booties by MellonyBe? So sweet!
Another favorite is this free baby blanket crochet pattern from Annmarie's Crochet Blog! I love love love the modern color palette and geometric design!
I could point out amazing free crochet patterns all day (after all... that's kind of what I do!) but I know you're eager to get started poking around for yourself, so I'll just share one more - the Bulky Mountains by Dapper Toad. These just make me so happy. These throw pillows are fun, whimsical, and I need about 15 of them on my couch right now.
So if you love free crochet patterns - and if you're here on Moogly, I'm betting you do! - then go check out the 2000+ Free Crochet Patterns on Craftsy! Then come back here and share your favorites!
