5 Unique Free Crochet Patterns

Variety is the spice of life–and your crochet process. So if you’re feeling a little bored with your current WIPs, here are 5 unique patterns you can use for FREE!


The Waistcoat Basket by Stephanie Jessica Lau 



The waistcoat stitch is a knit-alike stitch made by crocheting between the posts of a single crochet. Which makes it the perfect stitch for this sturdy, crocheted basket.

You’ll want to make sure you understand the different parts of a stitch. And you’ll also want to make sure to crochet loosely so you can fit your hook between the posts. (Here’s a short tutorial)

What you’ll need:
Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Solids
7.0mm and 8.0mm hooks

Puff Stitch Hat by B.hooked Crochet


So many crocheted hat patterns use knit-look-alike stitches to give them a knitted look. That’s why I love this design! It embraces the cool and unique style you can only get with crochet!

The hat will be warmer than you think because of the dense puff stitches. Choose a self-striping yarn for fun color changes!
