Free Crochet Pattern Roundup, COVID-19 Edition!

Hello my fellow crocheters,

What a crazy time it is in our world with the emergence of this novel Coronavirus.

With leaders all over the world asking (or mandating) citizens to stay at home, practice social distancing, abide by shelter-in-place policies, or even go on lock down to prevent the spread of COVID-19, a lot of us find ourselves now having to adjust to a new "normal" in life.  I have no idea how long this will go on for, nor do I know what other things the future brings.  It is unsettling, to say the least!

However, in the attempt to bring some light back into our lives, I've decided to put together a roundup of projects that can spark joy!  They are all beginner-friendly crochet patterns that you can get for free on my blog.  For those of you who are home-bound, crocheting can be a great way to relieve some stress and bring a sense of calmness back into your system!

So, let's jump into it!  All you need to do is click on the pattern name to navigate to the pattern page with the written instructions (and video tutorial, if available)!

Home & Decor  

Since a lot of us are now spending 99.9% of our time at home, why not spruce up your living space a bit with some of these decorative projects that are also functional, whether it's for organization, storage, or other uses! 



For Yourself or Others

Self care is super important during a stressful and anxiety-upping time like this!  Give yourself (or someone you know) the gift of self care or love with these thoughtful, handmade crochet gifts.

A set of four different projects (face scrubbies, facial washcloth, bath pouf, and soap saver pouch) for an in-home spa experience while being eco-friendly!

Mint Spirit Earrings
These are so quick to make and are light-weight, small, and easy to mail as gifts to your loved ones who'd appreciate a "Thinking of You" gift!  

Worry Pet
Does your little one have lots of worries?  This pocket-sized Worry Pet is easy to carry around and help relieve some anxiety by rubbing its fur and squeezing it. Adding scents and aromas may also help!

Bunny Lovey
Does your little one need calming down? This security blanket may help alleviate some worries! A puppy dog version is also available! 

Amigurumi to Spark Joy

These cheery amigurumi projects are not only fun to customize with different yarn colors and embellishments, but you'll also love having these finished amis sitting around to remind you to be happy! 

Baby Bean Doll
You can use this human body base to create a little set of mini me's in your house!  It's perfect for children stuck at home who could use some new toys for imaginative play!  Links to clothing, accessories, and customizations included on this pattern page.

Sweet Spring Tulip Bulb

I hope that you'll find some inspiration from these patterns!  If you'd like more ideas, feel free to check out my other free patterns!

Wishing everyone some peace (and crocheting) during this difficult time!

Much love,
