This Week for pattern Friday, I am sharing with you another one of my favorite pattern resources. I have mentioned it in other posts, but I have not written a post about it yet. This week I am sharing with you guys Ravelry. It has plenty of patterns (some are free, others are not). It is also great because it has groups, and forums and such. I like that feature in addition to the patterns because there are often groups by location, or project (particularly charity knitting/crocheting).
With Ravelry you will need an account to access patterns and the groups but creating an account is free, and allows you to save patterns to your library and keep track of projects you have completed if you so choose to use that feature.
This is just one of the places I go to, in order to get ideas of what I want to make.
