Crochetville’s new free crochet pattern directory has some exciting new features that we hope will make this your first stop when searching for free crochet patterns.

Here are some of the things we think makes this site extra-special.

Submit Pattern Listings

Yes, you can add content to our database! We would love for you to tell us about all your favorite free crochet patterns. If you’re ready to get started, click here to Add a Pattern. If you’d like a little assistance before you get started, click here to read our Adding Patterns Tutorial.

Advanced Search Filters

You’ll find an Advanced Search Tool in the left-hand sidebar. You can use any of these options, singly or in combination, to help you narrow down  your search results.

Thumbnail Photo Galleries

Now you won’t have to spend time clicking on lots of links to other sites just to see if a pattern really is what you’re looking for. You can see at least one thumbnail photo for every pattern listed in our database.

Organized Categories for Easy Browsing and Searching

If you just want to spend some time browsing, scroll down to the Categories section on the main page of our website. You can browse through top-level categories as well as sub-categories if you want to look at more specific things.

You can also search by category using our Advanced Search Tool.

Create Your Own Favorite Patterns List

Would you like to be able to keep a list of your favorite free patterns that you’ve found while browsing our site? It’s easy! Just click the “Add to Favorites” link you’ll see in each and every pattern listing.

You’ll need to create a free account to take advantage of this feature. Your favorites are then stored in your site profile so they’ll never be lost even if you clear your browser’s cookies.

Coming soon: You’ll be able to log on to this site and our community forum with your same user ID. This feature will be available after we migrate our forum to a new software platform in January 2013.

“Love This Pattern” Feature

See a pattern that you really like? With one easy click, show others how much you love it. Just click the heart in the pattern listing. You’ll be able to see how many others love the pattern, too!

New Patterns This Month

We have an easy way for you to keep up with all the new patterns added each month. Look for the “New Patterns This Month” widget in the left-hand sidebar.

We list patterns added each week for the past four week. The link will show you how many patterns were added that week, too.
