The Internet is full of free crochet patterns offered by various designers and crochet publications. But they can be hard to find, and sometimes it's difficult to compare patterns and select the one that's best suited for your needs, your crochet skills and the yarn and needles that you have available. The mission of Crochet Patterns Galore is to make a searchable database of free crochet patterns from around the web.
Are you a designer offering free crochet patterns? Or perhaps you just have a freely available crochet pattern that you really like? You can submit the pattern to our directory. It's a great way to increase publicity and traffic.
If you are also interested in knitting, we have a sister site - Knitting Patterns Galore!
The featured pattern of the week is Butterfly Ripple Shawl. If you like butterfly-style shawls, check out this attractive offering from Meladora's Creations. It features a ripple motif, and is great for yarn with long color changes.
