I've found a great source for free patterns: Craftsy.com.
They've got some really great patterns trending in their free pattern collection.
My favorite is the baby knitting pattern Fortune Cookie Booties. They're almost painfully cute—and easy to knit, too. Wrap them up in a Chinese to-go container and you've got a shower gift that'll steal the show!
