I love Craftsy!

Roberta A

I tried to download the granny square bag, and found out it was a PAID pattern 🙁

Kristin Doherty

Hi Roberta! I just double checked and the bag is pattern is listed as free. I recommend double checking if you have any other patterns in your cart that might effecting your total checkout price. Let me know how else I can help!

Sandra R

Thank you, Craftsy! 🙂


Love, love, love Craftsy! Love your wonderful classes, love your blogs and love your free patterns and tutorials. Thank you very much.

N Limones

Thank you for the free patterns and recipes! It’s always fun to have that. You had the free class for the BOM 2016 the other day and when I went to get it, it wouldn’t allow me to put it in the cart. 🙁 It was the same day it came up on my email, but I don’t know why it wouldn’t let me get it.
Anyway, I love this site- too much.

Kristin Doherty

Hi there! That’s certainly unusual. I’m going to send your comment to our customer support team so that they can help figure out if there’s a problem. Keep an eye out for an email from them!


Sad that, out of 16 free patterns, only one was knit 🙁

Linda L.

I see 2 food; 2 papercraft; 2 jewellery; 2 needlework; 2 crochet; 2 knit; 2 sewing and 2 quilting patterns. That seems like a fair distribution over the different kinds of crafting that they feature on the Craftsy site.
Maybe you made the same mistake as I did at first when I skimmed through them and thought the blanket scarf was woven instead of knit.
