As of June 2015, popular free online crochet patterns from Red Heart are patterns for an apple blossom place mat, artsy headband, autumn log cabin throw and baby blanket. Project instructions are available for download.
The lacy apple blossom place mat requires intermediate skill level. Directions call for a 1.5 millimeter, or U.S. 7, size crochet hook and tapestry needle. The artsy headband is an easy craft. Shiny, brushed and metallic yarns combine to make a wide head covering.
Autumn colors, including brown, orange and yellow, make up the easy log cabin throw. Instructions for the baby blanket call for yarn in plum and a variety of blues; however, the site also recommends rainbow colors or pinks. Completing the blanket requires intermediate skill level.
