21 Most Referred to Pattern Websites

Finding that right website where it ends up being your go-to is really dependent on your own personal style. For myself, through sponsorship, Yarnspirations is my go-to website as I can teach from the catalogue and the yarns are readily available in my region of the world. For you, it could be a different story.

Some of the websites share the same patterns such as Ravelry, Love Crafts, JOANN, AllFreeCrochet and Yarnspirations can share the same pattern. Sometimes, the sites change the name of the patterns but the pattern is the same and the photography is pretty consistent.

A manufacturer, generally, needs to produce inspiration so crocheters know what to do with their products. Like me, I’m very visual and want to see a finished example.

From Personal Experience

All pattern websites have errors in their patterns. You tend to hear about the sites that have the most errors because of the volume of people who are using the website. Some websites, I have found the patterns to be exceptional in detail while other websites keep it simple.

For example, I really like the paid patterns on Etsy. The crochet designers of Europe are usually just so inspiring with their projects. However, if I was simple and easy, maybe Ravelry in the place to be to locate that easier.

Speaking bluntly, I tend not to use websites where the membership is required. However, I’ve been around so long that websites like Ravelry, you can only play within the website if you have a membership. Others may allow you to look around but if you want something, you may have a membership requirement to get further.

The list below are based on what The Crochet Crowd Stitch Social suggested. Yarnspirations help keep The Crochet Crowd operational, so I do suggest signing up for their newsletters as you can receive inspiration and discount deals too.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    Hi, I would like to know Mikey can you do a tutorial on an Afghan by coco crochet lee it’s name Juliets’s November Afghan? The reason I asked she doesn’t have a tutorial video.


    1. Mikey says:

      Morning… I am not allowed to film anything other than my own designs, Jeannes or the collection of Yarnspirations. It’s a legal thing. I cannot just film another designer’s stuff due to copyright laws. I’m sorry. You could always ask them to film a version to help you.

    Great List !

    Will you have a list of YouTube designers who do tutorials etc ?

    1. Mikey says:

      Yes, we took suggestions yesterday. I have to review the nominees before I can put The Crochet Crowd name behind the referrals. I’m unsure what the timing will be.

    1. Mikey says:

      I’ll keep my eyes open when I am surfing around. I am unsure what a Soccer Afghan looks like. Are you meaning hexagons and ball type look?
