Most Popular Crochet Patterns

I've noticed that crochet is growing in popularity. I love seeing crochet projects and wish I could learn properly. I know the basics but I never seem to have time to practise. The new Festival Collection from Sirdar has made me determined to learn this summer. 

If you also want to learn, or you are an experience crocheter, there are hundreds of amazing patterns to choose from. The top 10 bestsellers in my shop include a couple of the Sirdar Festival designs and, at number 2, my other favourite - large Alphabet and Numbers to use as toys or ornaments. 

These top 10 bestsellers include leaflets and books, baby and Christmas projects with something for all abilities from beginner to experienced.

Number one

Not only is this my number one selling crochet pattern, it also features in the top 10 of all the patterns and pattern books in my shop. There are two options to choose from - bears or rabbits. The ears and mix of stitches make it a very tactile design. And, the comforter toys are the perfect accompaniment. Buy

Number two

This is a book rather than a leaflet, it includes instructions for all 26 letters of the alphabet and numbers 0-9. The letters are 3D and are between 16 and 17cm high. The majority are between 13 and 15cm wide, but some go up to 17cm and others are narrow, e.g. letter I is only 8.5cm wide. Buy

Number three

Another crochet book, this time one of the Christmas Collection from King Cole. Book 4 has proven to be the most popular of the range. It is a fun collection of Christmas decorations and gifts including a popular wreath. There is also a great fairy lights garland, stockings, Christmas tree baubles, fun characters, chocolate covers and more. Buy

Number four

This is one of my favourite crochet books. Filled with Scandinavian designs for Christmas and all year round homewares, the colour palette is simple. The gnomes, or gonks, on the cover are fun and the cute little house garland is a great project and the perfect decoration when your Christmas bunting comes down. I also love the geometric shapes in the cushion designs. Buy

Number five

Number nine

The first of the Sirdar Festival Collection, new for 2022, to make my top 10. This coat was instantly popular, and you can see why. Crocheted in Granny squares, it is an easy level pattern for beginners. However, there are a lot of squares so it's best if you enjoy crocheting lots of Granny squares! There are so many colour combos to try Buy
