Free Patterns

This is a directory of the free crochet patterns I’ve designed.  Note:  You may sell items made from any of my patterns.  However, unless otherwise noted, all photos and content on this page and in my patterns are mine.  Please do NOT take them without asking and NEVER reproduce my patterns elsewhere.  This takes traffic from my site.  Please use a link to this page instead – for a link to this index, or use a direct link to any of the pattern pages.

Having said all that, I am reasonable and if there is something you need or want, please don’t hesitate to contact me using the contact form.  I also am striving to put many of my free patterns on video, which you can find on my YouTube channel.   This page will be updated continuously as I write out my patterns over time.

    So excited to be able to try some of your free patterns and feel it a privilege to be able to become one of your crocheting friends. What I have seen so far it is exciting. I have 10 great grandchildren and they love me to surprise them with things. I am anxious to try making doll. Waiting to hear from you. J

    • October 1, 2015 at 10:34 am

      TR means a Treble Stitch, Jacqueline. And all my patterns are in U.S. stitch terms. Hope that helps. 🙂

    Awesome! Your crafts are just amazing and humorous. I am going to get busy. I have a son-in-law that I am going to make a few things for for fathers day. Your ideas are the right kind of twisted! :-0
    I really enjoy what you create, keep on keepin’ on!
    Bless you and your talent!

      Thank you so much Joyce! I’m so glad you like the slightly twisted ideas! I hope your son-in-law appreciates them too! Hope you all celebrate a lovely Father’s Day! 🙂

    Hi! I found your awesome site through a crochet blog that had a great Grover and Cookie finger puppet. Are those still available? Thanks! Great work!

      Hi Lacey! Thank you so much. Unfortunately, I don’t offer those patterns any more. I did try to contact several companies regarding getting a cottage license to make their licensed characters. Sesame Street was the only one kind enough to respond, but they declined and in order to run a legitimate business, I don’t want to infringe on their designs.

    Lacey, Thank you so much for your peanut pattern. I am a children’s book author and my books are based on the Land of Nubbins; A world full of nut people.I have searched high and low for patterns of different nuts. I found your peanut pattern and plan in using it to make one of my characters, Goober P. Nut. I am making them for giveaways at a book festival I am participating in to promote my book! thank you that you are offering your patterns for free. I want to give you credit for the pattern. What do you want it to say?

      Hi Djuana – My name is not Lacey (I think that was the person who commented earlier so I think that is where the confusion comes from). Anyway, you can just call me the Mad Crochet Scientist and I am so flattered that you like my peanut pattern enough to use it to promote your book!!! That is so exciting! I would love to see Goober P. Nut come to life. If you use the pattern, I’d love for you to credit the Mad Crochet Lab for it or even link to Also, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any issues with the pattern. I would love to see pictures of your creation and/or your book festival!!!!! 🙂
