I am so addicted to faux fur yarn after making my favorite Fur Trimmed Boot Cuffs. (Have you made yours yet? Share a photo with me on Ravelry!) Of course, my fur trim crochet pattern only used half a skein of yarn. That means I still have two (and a half!) more balls of Lion Brand Pelt in my stash! So, I have been indulging my hobby of looking for free crochet patterns. I had to dig a little deeper than usual to find the right fur yarn crochet patterns, so I thought you’d all like to see the collection.
Here are some of my favorite free fur yarn crochet patterns to help inspire you to finally work up that awesome fur yarn in your stash that’s been calling your name. These are my absolute favorites from all around the web- I’ve scoured Facebook, Pinterest, Ravelry, and AllFreeCrochet to find the best free fur yarn projects to crochet!
