15 Free Crafty Patterns

Earlier this spring, Craftsy, the online social crafting site which offers up online video classes, workshops and projects (for sewing, knitting, quilting, etc) launched a pattern section, a free place for indie designers to sell their patterns.  And in that section there are about 20 free patterns under each category ranging from crocheting to sewing.  Kind of a cool idea to pull makers in and to give back at the same time.  Click through the thumbnails below to see ten (faves) of their 100+ free patterns to choose from.
