The company offers crafting books, quality yarns and craft supplies, and project kits for crochet, knitting and needlework.
Herrschners' free patterns include knit, crochet and needlework projects, as well as other types of craft designs, such as friendship bracelets, felt Christmas ornaments, greeting cards and glittered candle holders. Free crochet patterns include simple dishcloths, sock monkeys, cotton tote bags, scarves and afghans. Cable-knit pillows, children's skirts, baby bonnets and decorative snowmen are some of the free knit patterns offered by Herrschners. Needlework enthusiasts have access to free patterns for pendants, place cards and holiday decor.
Visitors may browse all of the patterns available from the Herrschners website, or they may narrow down the selection by skill level, craft type, project size or occasion. Options are also available to filter the results by yarn weight, thread size, theme, project type or designer, and a search bar allows users to locate specific patterns.
