Treat Yourself With Free Patterns to Knit & Crochet

As you cross the holiday gift-making finishing line this year, reward yourself with a brand-new project that's just for YOU! Some may call it "selfish" knitting or crocheting, but we think it's an essential part of crafting, especially if you tend to knit or crochet for others. There's nothing like indulging in a few skeins of luxurious yarn in your favorite colour and finding the perfect pattern to make them sing. Today, we share some of our favourite free patterns to knit and crochet with our yarns.
