Sharing is caring, and that includes our craft knowledge! Teaching crafts to those we love is a great way to connect with others, and Yarnspirations has put together a fantastic collection of 70+ free beginner crochet, knit, and sewing patterns to help you get started – and I’ve added a few more teaching-ready freebies here on Moogly!

Part of learning a new craft is finding your group, online or in-person – others who are into the same craft, and excited about it too! One great way to find that group is to teach crafts to friends and family already around you!
Or perhaps you’re just getting started on this crafting journey yourself – in that case, here’s a fantastic bunch of patterns for you to work through and learn as you go!
First, get all the main links. Then see my top picks for knit, crochet, and sewing/embroidery – and a couple bonus patterns from Moogly too! Lots of goodies to scroll through here!
