Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of free patterns and useful tutorials on this year’s list. (Here’s the best of 2016 list in case you’re looking to compare the two.) They’re absolutely worth taking a peek at if you missed them on the first go ’round. Next week, we’re kicking off the new year with a survey for you guys to help me narrow down some of the ideas and plans I have for Hands Occupied. Don’t miss out on that – I want to make sure I hear from everyone I possibly can to ensure Hands Occupied keeps bringing you the knitting, crochet, yarn crafts, and more that you want to see! For now, let’s take a look at this year’s most-visited posts. :)
The best of 2017:
- Little Hats Big Hearts – An overview of a favorite charity knitting & crochet program.
- Lopi Tote – A free knitting pattern.
- Golden Check Infinity Scarf – A free knitting pattern.

Heidi, I am trying to print the instructions for red hats for preemies and I really don’t want to print all 53 pages Please help me to print just the instructions. Thank you so much
You have to copy and paste the pattern into a separate document if you want to print it without images. I am on the lookout for a good website plugin to make my free patterns on the blog printer-friendly, but haven’t yet found one that fits knitters’ and crocheters’ needs!
