Your Everyday Classics Collection

classic simple crochet patterns

Your favorite simple crochet patterns probably have a lot in common.

They’re comfortable. You like how they look. They get a lot of use. You had fun making them. They’re durable and easy to care for. 

We took these attributes, created an entire collection of crochet patterns that checks off each of these boxes, and called it Your Everyday Classics Collection.

This collection is a free series of simple crochet patterns here on the blog. Read about the inspiration behind the collection, the perfect yarn we chose, or scroll down to find the free version of each of the patterns.

Make sure you pin this post as this is where you’ll find all the free crochet stitch patterns as they’re posted each day!

Everyone has that one crochet project that they use (or wear) constantly. It’s the perfect blend of classic, but not boring; modern, but not overly trendy. 

These favorites were our inspiration for Your Everyday Classics Collection. 

In it, you’ll find 12 exclusive crochet patterns from Knitting With Chopsticks, E’Claire Makery, and Joy of Motion Crochet, all designed to be your new go-to piece. 

We’ve covered the gamut from sweaters, blankets, and a vest, to socks, a headband, and more. You’re sure to adore this collection of fun new patterns, and find some great gift ideas as well!

The Yarn

What if you could make 12 designer crochet patterns with the same yarn? For one thing, everything would match! On top of that, it would reduce the amount of scrap yarn laying around (personally, I have enough of that to last me a while). For Your Everyday Classics Collection, we chose a selection of Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn in 5 coordinating colors. 

Lionbrand wool ease yarn

Wool-Ease is a worsted weight yarn made of wool and acrylic, so you get the softness and warmth of wool, plus it’s machine washable and easy to care for. It’s a versatile and durable yarn, which is exactly what you need when you’re making pieces for everyday wear.

The yarn is available in 16 colors that feel modern yet classic. Browse their selection and you’re sure to find something that suits your next crochet project. 

A big shout out to Lion Brand for sponsoring the yarn for Your Everyday Collection. If you’ve never visited their site, you should! They have an entire library of free downloadable patterns for knitters and crocheters.

The simple modern crochet design means it’s truly a classic piece that can be worn day after day. It’s lightly textured and naturally stretchy, so it won’t slide around, and the front twist adds style while keeping the yarn off your forehead.
