Did you know that April 17th is Husband Appreciation Day? So let’s celebrate the men in our lives with a roundup of patterns especially designed for him! Husbands, we love them dearly don’t we? And when we have sons we hope (most of the time) …
The Summer Solstice events organised by The Loop Hole Fox between 20th-24th June 2020. It featured 25 designers who have gave you a FREE PDF Pattern that you would have otherwise had to pay for! I know that we have been participated in a lot of these events during the summer of 2020, but we think you all deserved it. The world was tipped on its head for many of us, and in more ways than one. So participating in these events was our way of supporting you guys. Crochet was keeping many of us grounded and steady and we wanted to support that any way we can. If a free pattern round-up makes life a little easier during these times and helps you to organise for things like Christmas etc then that too is great!
So we decided to keep the patterns as a reminder and a round up for you!
Many of these patterns have free versions on the designers’ blogs so you can still get to make lots of them with a free version! Just click on the photo of the pattern you want to make to find out if it is still free!
If the designer does not have a blog you will be directed immediately to the pattern.
