Craftsy is an online craft daily deal site but is also such a cool online community for crafters! I have just joined and it looks like it is full of cool ideas and fun craft patterns. You can pay to take online classes but they offer cool FREE patterns as well in their weekly emails and have a really cool block of the month feature.
The Craftsy Block of the Month is a completely free, year-long online quilting class instructed by expert quilter, Amy Gibson. There are 12 installments, each one posted on the first day of every month. The first 10 months/installments teach our students two new exciting blocks (brand new designs or funky spins on traditional blocks). The last two months are dedicated to finishing the quilt. At the end of the class, our students will have full-size and one-of-a-kind quilts. Like all of our classes, students can view it whenever it’s convenient for them, and can watch them however many times they’d like. It’s filmed in high-definition, and it’s fully interactive—students can ask Amy questions as they go.
The most recent free pattern they are offering is for a double knitted snowflake scarf. Go over and sign up for Craftsy to check them out!
