You say it is a free pattern is it only for people in the US A ..? I filled the form for free hat patterns but I can not put in the province that I live in

Hi Verna, Are you referring to a specific pattern? All those listed here are free online. If you're referring to the eBook, you should still be able to download it no matter where you live. I hope it works out! Jesse, editor of AllFreeCrochet

When I clicked on "Get free book" all I kept getting was the ad for a "free book". So much for this site!

Go to the search bar and enter "panda bear hat" and you will come up with several options. Hope you find what you are looking for.

This should encourage a beginner to knit or crochet with some practice. I am a volunteer for charity. Who need tv when you can keep the hands busy?

Looking for the Panda Bear hat pattern as well and I can't seem to find it anywhere. Do you know where I can find this hat??? Everyone seems to be having the same problem. Is this a free hat or do we have to purchase the pattern? Your help would be much appreciated!

Looking for the pattern to crochet the hat for women with cancer

Here is a link to some projects for chemo caps and wraps: Hope that helps! --Editors of AllFreeCrochet

I agree with the pictures included with list. I have yet to find a sight (and I've been on many of them) that I'm even 50% happy with. Most send you half way around the cyber world only to find out that you are in another country and trying to understand their language, even tho they think its English. We can do better than this, guys.

It would be SO very helpful if you could have even a tiny picture of each project on the main page so that we don't have to keep opening up page after page just to have a basic idea of what each project will look like. (Thanks for all the great patterns!)

could not open your patterns

I tried to print out a hat pattern, and it started giving me 19 pages of meaningless dates. I cancelled the printing.. Well, so much for free patterns!

Hi, joyceckidd 8018246. Because we link out to the patterns on the designers' websites/blogs, we have no control over what else is included on the webpage. Many designers feature their patterns on their blogs, and so there may often be several comments below a pattern from other readers. To avoid printing all of this content, we suggest copying and pasting the pattern into a Word document to print, or highlighting the pattern and clicking "selection" instead of "all" under print range. Hope this helps! --Editors of AllFreeCrochet

How do I DOWN-LOAD &/or View the Patterns ? ? ?

Hi, ColumbiaDesign 7610464. To access the pattern, simply click on the name of the pattern you are interested in. This will bring you to the pattern on our site. Then click the link that says "Click here for crochet pattern" to view the pattern in full. Hope this helps! --Editors of AllFreeCrochet

Great how much information is this website stealing from computers ?

I get a red x; but, when I right click it doesn't work. Can't get any patterns.

Good afternoon - what happens when you click on the project? Is the screen blank? Is it the long on the actual project on AllFreeCrochet that doesn't work. With more information, we can target the source of the problem. Thanks!

Tried again after a few weeks. Still could not get the pattern.

I got no hat pattern at all.

I'm not able to open or download ANY of the patterns any category. A little frustrating...cuz these patterns look really cool.

So far all I've gotten is nothing- no Patterns !!!!!

I can not download hat patterns.

great hats. can we get pictures on this page to save time? thanks. i would appreciate it if a picture could ALWAYS accompany a link to a pattern.

Good Information
