Donna’s Dozen Most Popular Patterns of 2015

I have always wondered what inspires a person to download a pattern. Is it the photograph/model, color of the project, the yarn, interesting stitches, skill level or is it just the right project. Personally, I have a project in mind and begin my search by narrowing the field. No matter what the reason is we are thrilled to be able to bring you so many free patterns on RedHeart.com. Click on and let the search begin.

Today I have compiled a list of the twelve most downloaded patterns of 2015. This list has a variety of designs to choose from. I wish I could have done a Donna’s TWO Dozen because there are so many great designs on our site. Hats off to all of our wonderful and talented designers! I must confess though, one throw has been on top for the past two years so I did not include it in this year’s top dozen. You can check out this popular beauty right here. It is one of my favorites too and you will see why.

I hope you have enjoyed the dozen (plus 1 bonus) top downloaded patterns of 2015. This year has flown by for me, but I have loved every minute of my time with you all. It really is the best feeling to create something by hand so keep those hooks and needles going strong. Just because I am curious, if you have a moment to comment let me know how and why you search for patterns.

Best wishes in the New Year!!

    I enjoy creating things for us, family, friends. We live in a pretty cold area, so everything warm makes a big difference. I have been crocheting since about age 4, and never tire of it. Have taught my daughter to do it as well, and we count on all your patterns for inspiration.
    Thank you, and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

    I usually start with some yarn I have to use or a request for a certain something.
    So then, depending on the search functions, I will look for something that uses that particular yarn, or similar.
    Or the item requested.
    But sometimes I just like to do random searches for eye candy or see what is new that might spark an idea I never had.

    I love to find afghan patterns that are different. Something beautiful, and difficult. Where I can make vast arrangements of color choices, and get smiles of amazement, with my creativity, from a finished project. I love red heart patterns! You guys always show me what I’m looking for!

    Thank you for our wonderful patterns, yes, pictures tell a thousand words, but intriguing patterns always gets a second look from me. I love patterns that can be done with strips or plain, but I am a colored person when it comes to working on blankets.
    As we are on the other side of the world, and our summer is just starting, it is hard to get to be interested in lots of gloves, cowls etc. as we never really need them here in Queensland. But my pattern books are full of downloads to look at even when I am not working on something, which I try and do every night.
    Merry Christmas and Thanks for a wonderful year of patterns.

    Wow! It got me so excited to see the “Romantic Lacy Shawl” in the list because I did make it this year and I had so much fun doing so. What inspires me to download a pattern is, if it looks intricate but when I observe closely the picture I see that I can master it regardless of my skill level of if it has some interesting sequence that i have never done. I always look for patterns that i can learn a new skill. Next year I will tackle a blouse. Keep the awesome patterns coming!
