For all you crocheters out there, you must check out this site. I love Crochet Pattern Central because it's full of direct links to free crochet patterns that are posted on the web. Some are for people's personal sites and other links take you to commercial sites for crafters. CPC has all patterns organized by the type of project. If you're looking for a baby afghan or a bikini (seriously!), you can find it easily! Of course you have your ugly looking projects, but as you dig through, you can find cute & beautiful ones too. Since I just began to crochet last year, I didn't want to spend a lot of money on expensive patterns and books that I might never use. Now, I just head to this site & print out the ones I like, try them out, and if I succeed-great!; if not-it's ok! Also the patterns are for beginners to advanced, so anyone can take advantage. The Instruction Directory has come in handy many times as I try to figure out something new.
I love this site & visit it often to check the updates. Just wanted to pass it on to you!
(There's also a Knitting Pattern Central out there for those of you who like to hold 2 needles. )
