Knitting Patterns More Knit Patterns →

While I focus mostly on crochet, knitting is also one of my favorite hobbies! While it’s a little harder to pickup and make than crochet, the projects come out absolutely amazing. Knitting creates a tighter fabric than crochet does, and it uses different tools as well.

Free Crochet Patterns

I’m Krista Cagle, and I’ve been crocheting for over 10 years, but I started out as a beginner, just like everyone else. I don’t create overly complex patterns that take scientists to figure out. All my patterns are built for ease and that mindless crocheting we all like to do in front of the TV.

Each one of my easy crochet patterns is free and built with modern yarns, techniques, and colors. Most yarn and tools I use are easily found at US stores like Target, Walmart, and Michaels.

My crochet patterns are the easiest to follow due to the care we take in providing detailed instructions, step-by-step photos and a material list that gives you every bit of information you’ll ever need. You won’t be able to find an easier to follow crochet pattern anywhere else on the web!

I’ve created over 550 new and exciting crochet patterns and roundups, and each one is provided for free right here on I have also recently begun to feature some easy crochet patterns from other designers as a part of our Partner Program. These patterns are from some of the best crochet designers that I know.

The community I’ve created surrounding my patterns is also second-to-none. Between my growing Facebook group and our site’s commenting platform, you’ll be able to get the answers you require for any crochet project on the site.

Wait… Aren’t All Crochet Patterns Free?

Well, no.

Occasionally, you will find crochet patterns sold for a couple of dollars on various websites. This is typically for a couple of reasons, including, but not limited to, the complexity of the pattern, the uniqueness of it, or simply because that designer chose not to make it free.

However, every crochet pattern on Easy Crochet is one-hundred-percent free! On many patterns, I do offer an ad-free alternative, which comes in a PDF and is usually had for less than a cup of coffee. This small cost helps keep the rest of this site free, as well as helps sustain my continued production of even more free crochet patterns!


Hi, I'm Krista. I love to crochet, every dog I've ever met, and working from home in comfy yoga pants. Grab a cup of coffee and let's get to work on your next project together!
