You might look at my most popular YouTube video tutorials which are often for my patterns. Or, perhaps, you want to search Ravelry. Here are my top 12 most popular Ravelry free crochet patterns.
Note that these are free on my website or Yarnspirations. However, if you prefer an ad-free version, most of these are available for purchase on Ravelry.
Every year I offer a few make-alongs that are super popular. One of these is the annual Game Day Mystery Make-along. On Super Bowl Sunday, we all play along together knitting and crochet with clues released every hour or two throughout the day. At day’s end, you have a new project. The 2021 Crochet Purse Pattern is ranked as my most popular of all my Ravelry free crochet patterns.
The annual Turkey Trot is another of my popular make-alongs. This crochet pocket shawl is the second most popular of my Ravelry free crochet patterns. Who doesn’t love a cozy yarn hug with pockets?! You can get the clues free on my site to complete the project or you can purchase the ad-free PDF through Ravelry.
Crochet pineapples are a classic design that you can update to a contemporary look with your yarn choice. That’s what I’ve done here with this crochet shawl pattern, which is my third most popular Ravelry free crochet pattern. It’s a free crochet pattern and I also offer a two-part video tutorial to take you through it. Here’s part one:
There are a couple of great things about this free crochet hat pattern. First of all, you have the option to make it a messy bun hat. What people really love most though is the unique brim that you can create for this hat.
You’ll use the simple slip stitch to create that. The pattern is free here on the site and I’ve got tutorials for it as well. It’s a seamless, bottom-up crochet hat worked in the round. It’s on Ravelry here.
Who doesn’t love a really quick, easy, instant gratification project? This headband is something you can work up really fast with a little bit of yarn from your stash. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not special. It’s one of my most popular Ravelry free crochet patterns because it’s a great self-care gift.
I created this purple ombre crochet hat pattern to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer. It’s designed with a non-itchy yarn choice in case you want to make it for someone who is going through chemo treatment. I’ve created a video tutorial for this chevron crochet hat pattern to simplify it for you. If you want to purchase an ad-free version, get it through Ravelry.
Tournament of Stitches is another one of my popular make-alongs. This one takes place during March Madness each year. In 2020, the crochet project was a mosaic crochet scarf. You can follow the clues in the original post to get this pattern for free, but it’s also available for sale as an easy-to-read ad-free PDF.
Everyone likes a one-ball crochet pattern. It’s an affordable way to create an accessory, like this shawl. Oftentimes, you can even shop your stash for the yarn. This is a filet mesh crochet triangle shawl that you can wear bandana-style if you wish. This one has an ad-free PDF you can purchase.
That’s right, another Turkey Trot pattern made it into my Top 12 Ravelry free crochet pattern. This is a poncho pattern that everyone really enjoyed making. As with the other one, you can follow the clues in the main post on the website or purchase the ready-to-go ad-free PDF.
Last year’s Tournament of Stitches was also one of my most popular patterns. This tells you that if you aren’t participating in these various make-alongs, then you’re missing out! It was a colorful geometric throw and/or pillow pattern.
Crochet baby shower gifts are among the most popular patterns that people look for. Baby blankets are fun projects because they’re large enough to make you feel really accomplished and yet small enough to work up quickly before a baby shower. Moreover, every baby needs at least one special blanket, and it feels great to be able to create that for a baby with your own two hands.
I love teaching planned pooling crochet to people. I have created patterns, video tutorials, and even a whole book on the topic. And the free planned pooling scarf pattern is right there in my Top 12 among my most popular crochet patterns on Ravelry.
