Over the years, Craft Passion has published hundreds of patterns and tutorials for free and the library is growing bigger and bigger. We foresee that browsing through this huge pattern library could be difficult for some reason. Hence, many years back, Craft Passion added a link somewhere below the logo called “Gallery” where you may do a quick search by browsing through the small thumb photos of the pattern. As the numbers of patterns grew bigger now, we, again, think that we should do a round-up post for each related pattern on a certain topic that you might be interested in. So here it is, a round-up of
