Crochet Dream Catcher Patterns, Tutorials and Inspiration

After sharing an exercise about crocheting a dream catcher as a way to help you realize your artistic dreams, I just had to do a roundup of inspiration crochet dream catchers. Some of these are patterns or tutorials, others are just here to inspire you! These include many that are round, as is traditional, but also some in other motif shapes. They aren’t all strictly dream catchers but definitely inspired by both their design and the intention.

Two very different styles of crochet dream catchers by The Cosmic Crafter. The rainbow yarn tassels are inspiring, but I also love the mixed media green circle with a tree in the center. Of course, this is not a traditional dream catcher since it is open but it is a great art piece derived from that inspiration.

    • Lynda, how do you connect your work to the circle or whatever type frame you have? I have seen different ones and am interested in making these.

  1. Please I would like to have the patterns for the dream catchers I checked them out and love every one, can you help me with them , thank you

  2. Thank you for posting this. My granddaughter has been wanting a dream catcher for her bad dreams. I KNEW there had to be a crochet pattern out there for one. Boy, was I surprised to find these! I’ve since made THREE!!! And she loves every one!!! Wish I could share the ones I’ve made!

  3. Actually, the center of dream catchers ARE supposed to be open to let the bad dreams through. I’ve been making the traditional dreamcatchers for years and find the crocheted ones fascinating.

    • Sorry, the legend is the dream catcher stops the bad dreams and lets the good ones fall down on the sleeper through the center hole.
