One of the things that I love about Ravelry is that the options users have for sorting through patterns is almost endless. Not only can you narrow down your choices with a keyword or to separate crochet patterns from knitting patterns but you can make choices related to the pattern’s price, type of product, yarn weight used, yardage of yarn required and more. Once you’ve filtered your choices, you can also sort the results by various methods and this is how I’m looking right now at the ten most popular free crochet patterns on the site.
