Free Crochet Pattern Friday

Hello, everyone! Happy Friday. For some (totally fine by me!) reason, my job gave me the weekend off - so, even in my retail life, this Friday is actually, well, my Friday! To celebrate, here are some of my favorite free crochet patterns that I've come across recently that my hooking fingers are itching to try.


Daisy Granny Square

While my poor granny square blanket has come to a sort of standstill for the time being, that doesn't mean that I can't drool over other motif ideas. Just imagine how sweet a little throw of these square would be - white daisies in the center and an array of greens as the border.


Crochet Measuring Tape Cover

Another flower-themed pattern. Quelle surprise! These little guys are so sweet, and I've been really meaning to buy a retractable measuring tape...


Crochet Slippers

I've tried to make a pair of slippers like these before when I had just started crocheting. They didn't turn out the greatest, but I wasn't as sure about counting stitches, using stitch markers, and general construction. I'd love to try it again with this sweet pattern! The best part is her outfit at the end - so cute.


Crochet Chevron Clutch

Is chevron still in? Yes? This little clutch is adorable - and doesn't seem too difficult? Be sure to look at the Ravelry page for the project to get inspiration for different color combinations and embellishments. That's where I found the above picture with the polka dot lining. Cute!


Crochet Sock Pattern

I still have never made socks. Admittedly, I think knitted socks are about a hundred times cuter than a crochet version, but this pattern caught my eye. They don't look clunky! The socks look fitted and sleek and cute! I do love that cuff, too. Maybe this is the weekend where I use up some of my sock weight yarn and try this out for once and for all. Now, if I could only find a cute crochet yoga sock pattern.

    1. You can! I had a friend show me, but YouTube videos were AMAZING, too - especially when I couldn't call my friend at 2AM because I couldn't remember a double crochet.
