Crochet Dreamcatcher Patterns: 26 Beautiful Designs

Dreamcatchers are an important part of the culture of Native Americans and other Indigenous people groups. When traditionally made with a willow branch, dreamcatchers are made in a web-like pattern with beads, gems, and other items of significance to ward off unwanted spirits and help you find your way in your dreams.

There are so many beautiful crochet dreamcatcher patterns that you can make, but be sure to do your research from Indigenous sources to make sure you are showing the proper appreciation for the place dreamcatchers have in Native American culture and to avoid cultural appropriation.

Dreamcatchers are considered an open practice and Native Americans are very welcoming to outside cultures learning about their practices and showing appreciation and respect for them. Check here to learn the importance of appreciation over appropriation from an Indigenous source.

    • 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. 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!

  2. 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.
