Unusual and fun crochet pattern ideas are what this post is all about. If you’re looking for unique gifts, this is definitely the right place to visit. Instead of the regular gifts, I thought I’d have some fun this year. So, I asked a bunch of my designer friends to show me their favorite unusual and fun crochet patterns. And, wow! Did they ever deliver!!

In this pattern round up you’ll find a bunch of really fun ideas! And, did I mention that they’re FREE crochet patterns?

From hats with elf ears, to a beer hat, to melted snowmen, baskets made with Dollar Store twine, to earbud holders and chair socks (yes, you heard me right…chair socks!) – there’s some really fun patterns to choose from. These will make great gifts and stocking stuffers. Which pattern (or patterns) will you make? There are 18 to pick from and I can think of a recipient for each pattern included – there will be a few on this list that will be for next year’s makes, too!

Here’s a pin for you. Pinterest board 🙂

While you’re on the designer’s web pages, feel free to look around and check out more of their patterns. It’s so much fun to look on their pages and see all of their creative ideas. You may even find more to add to your list of things to make for the upcoming year!

Let’s check out the unusual and fun crochet patterns!


I hope you enjoyed this round up to find your favorite unusual and fun crochet pattern! These are such amazing, fun and unique gift ideas. I’d love to know which one (or ones!) you choose to make. I’ll definitely be making at least 2 of the included designs, but probably more like 4 or 5!
