I agree with other posters. Pop up ads are annoying but what are TV commercials? They pop up in your shows and you put up with them. I figure it's a very small price or inconvenience as it were for me to be able to gain access to all of these wonderful and free patterns.

P.S.... I have a project that I am doing but I am doing it without any type of pattern (although I am sure there is probably one out there somewhere) as for the amount of "Pop UP ads" I guess I am the odd one out... since I look at it as part of the package, after all since the items one can access from this site are free it was and is worth the hassle because after all it how the webmaster can keep the site maintained without having to charge a view to it's is users. This is awesome for individuals like me that can't afford membership(s) especially when his/her monthly income is far less then poverty level. Crocheting is about the only "luxury" I have and that is only because I have access to very low to no cost material occasionally through my family members. So THANK YOU to the builder and all those involved in the development of this website and its content!!

I had no problem downloading and saving my free eBook. And although I haven't tried any of the patterns as yet I was able to view the book and see that there are at least a few that are "Easy" which is what I need since my skill level would be considered "beginner". I does contain several projects that I want to try in the future. Will let you know when I have done some of them.

i do not like this site. i do not need the aggravation. if i could give a lower rating, i would.

Best ever!!!

I can't stand this website. Pop-up after pop-up. I can't even read anything without some "install me" showing up. Maybe if you can fix this, I might come back. I was hoping for a awesome website. I found out about this site via Pinetrest. Let me know when you fix it please.

Cannot get copy of free ebooks. I am told it has downloaded but cannot find it. Thank you.

Have taken down; hoping to put it back up later.

It's very frustrating when I download one of your ebooks and then you force me to click a link within the ebook to get the pattern, and that link doesn't work. This is totally useless to me!

looking for free paterns for an octagon (8 sided) crochet rug. please email your pattern to me at Thanks to each of you in advance.

Thank you......I look forward to starting yet another project. I found you through Moogly on FACEBOOK.

Thanks so much.. this is awesome :)

I have been crocheting for very long time. This is a really great site & I hope to add my projects to share with all of you. I will be telling my fellow crocheters all about you. Thanks

Haven't crocheted in years - looking forward to having another try - thanks so very much.

I'm a newby and I know this will come in handy. Thanks so much!

Thank you for the e-book I know I will use it many times.

really is so very great for my loving hobby

I love crochet, but I have a problem with my English. I would like to see this page in Spanish if it is possible. thank you.

Please! I need a pattern for a blanket called Dainty Keepsake. I was in an old Leaisurearts pattern book Thank you

I want to find a pattern for baby cowboy boots.

I have one ( I think) if you still need one.

I want to find a crochet pattern for narrow lace suitable for doll clothes. Thought this site would have something I could use, but no luck!

I'm pretty new at crochet. As a young girl, my sister taught me to chain stitch and , what I thought, to double crochet. I'm now 46 years old and will be a grandma in March. I started making a baby blanket for my grandson using only the stitches I knew. I wanted to make a pair of booties and started searching online. I made a bonnet and booties for my oldest son when he was a baby and they turned out to be the size of a 2 year old. LOL. I stumbled onto this site and am so glad I did. I love the free patterns, although most I am still learning about the stitches. I found out my double crochet is not a double crochet at all. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure what it would be called. LOL. But, since, I've already put about 18 hours into this blanket, I'm going to continue whith the mystery stitch. The only question I have is that it seems like it is getting longer and longer. It's even, so I know I'm not off of my count. Why would this be? I look forward to learning much more. By the way, I made my first pair of "tru" baby booties. I just hope they won't turn out too small. Happy crocheting :).

Maybe check and see if you are making your stitches looser as you go along. My chain end always used to shorter because my chain stitch was tighter than the other rows. Just a thought.

Maybe try telling us how your stitch goes and we can see if we recognize it? You may have invented a new stitch!! :-)

I dowloaded the ebook and it opens unreadable. What am I doing wrong? I was so anxious to get the free ebook and the download is not working.

I didn't get my Ebook downloaded

I had an issue at first also. Once I turned off my pop-up blocker, it downloaded fine. Try that and see if it helps. Merry Christmas :)!

With all my heart thanks for E-book of patterns of crochet I'm sure to make great us of them, a least I found free patterns thanks again.

I love the E book . I love to crochet , but sometimes can't afford the patterns. This give me plenty to do thanks

If anyone has an old Reader's Digest "Complete Guide to Needlework" with the snowflake pattern in it, could you please email me with the year of publication and the directions. My book and the afghan I made for my mother some how disappeared when she passed away and I would like to make another in her memory for myself. I would really appreciate it. My email is Thanks

I would also like a copy if you please. Thank you. Joanne Here ya go! I hope it is the right one.

i have a copy of that book if you still need it...i can send off the directions!

I believe I have that if you still need. Let me know.

If all else fails, try contacting Readers Digest directly to see if they can't be helpful in locating the "Complete Guide to Needlework" Good luck in your venture. I hope you are successful in locating your pattern.

Evertthing looks great!! I'm looking for a pattern for a crocheted cuff bracelet, there was 2 different patterns & in the center is a shank button! Can someone help me!?

this is ok but i am looking for a special stitch use to be called the turkey stitch and we didn't mean a turkey either. it is a loop st. i need to get a graph of how to knot the loops. can you please help me? thank you alfreda johnsonbr br

the old readers digest needlework might have this turkey st in it. It shows a lot of yarn stitches and how they are done.

I used this stitch a long time ago so I typed it in to google and I think this is what you want. Good luck.

@ sls35, We suggest you try contacting the pattern designer directly for help. The designer is specified in the byline. You can also try posting your question onto our site's Facebook page; perhaps a fellow crocheter can assist you! Here is the link: --Editors of AllFreeCrochet

I was trying the Sweet and Simple Shawl. I'm not a beginner and this pattern totally confused me. The directions are not very clear when it says( ch3, sk 2ch, sc in next ch) does that ch3 mean a 3 in one or is it supposed to be 3 single ch across? it doesn't make much sense to me. I was starting to get a ripple effect instead of a lattice which is what the finished shawl looked like. Please be a little more specific on this pattern. Thank you.

Why didn't you put all the directions into this book. Some have them, and some don't. I don't want to be going online all the time.

Hi Abigailrose, everything seems to be fine on our end. We were having some glitches but everything seems to be fine now. Thanks for your patience!

your links to the free e-book patterns are not working...
