Top 10 Most Popular Free Crochet Patterns on Ravelry (and 10 Others that are Loved)

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.

Ravelry’s 10 Most Popular Free Crochet Patterns

Here are the ten most popular free crochet patterns on the site as of the time that I am writing this post. I’ve linked to the original pattern source but of course you can easily find the patterns on Ravelry as well.

3 Crochet Patterns from Attic24

3 of the top ten most popular free crochet patterns come from Lucy of Attic 24. I can totally see why because who doesn’t love her great sense of color?! Plus she gives really clear tutorials for stitch patterns that can be used any number of ways. The patterns are:

Neat Ripple Pattern

Granny Stripe Pattern

Hexagon How-To

3 Crochet Hat Patterns

3 of the top ten most popular free crochet patterns are for crochet hats.

Sarah Arnold’s Divine Hat

Shell Stitch Beanie by The Dainty Daisy

Valerie Whitten’s “Olivia’s Butterfly” Hat

2 Crochet Shawl Patterns

There are two crochet shawl patterns on the top ten list (actually a shawl and a “shawlette”):

Lion Brand Yarn’s South Bay Shawlette

Elise Shawl by Evan Plevinski

Patterns for 2 More Crochet Accessories

The other two popular patterns are:

Queen Anne’s Lace Scarf by Khebin Gibbons

Granny Stripe Boutique Bag by Sara Freisberg

Other Popular Free Crochet Patterns on Ravelry

I’m not quite sure what mathematical equation goes in to determining which patterns are “most popular” but you can also sort by specific factors that must go into this total equation including “most projects”, “most favorites”, and “most queued”. Here are the free crochet patterns that are in the top ten of those lists although they don’t currently rank in the top ten most popular free crochet patterns.

Most Projects

The patterns that rank in the top ten for “most projects” but aren’t already included above are:

Denise Cozzitorto’s One Skein Scarf with Matching Beret

Inga’s Hakelbeutel by Inga Joana Mertens

Alicia Paulson’s Tiramisu Baby Blanket

Fan Bookmark by Crochetroo

Most Favorites

The patterns that rank in the top ten for “most favorites” but aren’t already included above are:

Chevron Lace Cardigan by Milobo

Nordstrom Crochet Hobo Bag by Dao Lam

African Flower Hexagon by Lounette Fourie & Anita Rossouw; this one is a foreign pattern so you’ll need to use a translator, alternatively Heidi Bears offers a tutorial here

Most Queued

The patterns that rank in the top ten for “most queued” but aren’t already included above are:

Bernat’s Clutter Control Stash Baskets

Sarah London’s Wool Eater Blanket – this pattern was also included in my previous roundup of 20 top free crochet patterns

  6. I’m trying to find a pattern for a basket that is crocheted using 4 strands of yarn at once. It is a Ravelry pattern that was given to me, but I think some of the instructions are missing.

  7. I am looking for a pattern for a granny square sweater/cardigan. Has anyone seen one?
