These crochet Patterns will take you to a new level in Crochet. I like these patterns because of the great detail. The instructions are very clearly written and end results are rewarding. I wouldn't say these are the best patterns for a beginner crocheter, but hey have it in your stash for when you are ready for a challenge.

3. Made
Dana's Patterns are fun and inspire creativity.

I like that the patterns have picture tutorials and alternate methods if you do not have a serger. If you are beginner her tutorials are also extremely helpful. ( I learned many of my sewing techniques there)

4. Mamachee
Easy, Easy to understand and follow patterns. Most of her patterns also whip up pretty fast. Great for beginners and makes you feel like a pro. She also has free patterns on her blog go explore you'll see just how fun they are.

Stylish clothing for kids. Patterns are super easy to understand and follow. Only thing is I wish these patterns came in Larger sizes, most of them go up to a 4t or 6t. I have asked if they will design in larger sizes but I have not gotten a response yet.

6. Sew Liberated
If you need the instant gratification of and Emailed pattern these patterns will not meet that need. but Its worth the wait getting the pattern in the mail. I got the Huck Finn hat pattern and I really like it. and its one I got for my boys. I have not gotten great pictures of the hats I made but go to the site and see the Hat.

7. Whole Grain Baby
One of my favorite dresses to sew up for the girls, is the Raglan shift dress pattern I purchased from whole grain baby. Its so fun to make in an hour or so you can have a dress made and ready to wear.

8. Lil Blue Boo
This legging pattern is another quick pattern to sew. So you've made a dress and realize you do not have leggings to match pull this pattern out find something knit to re-purpose and Viola! and outfit is born.

9. Toddler Back Pack Pattern
I got this pattern to grow my sewing skills. At the time I was new to sewing so  it was hard but after making it once, the second time was easy.

10. Jackie Moon
