Crochet curtain patterns can be tricky to find—so I searched the web to find the best, most unique designs! These curtain patterns are the perfect home decor project to grace your windows.
Have you ever made a crocheted curtain? They are not as common of a project anymore. When you search for patterns, there are a lot of vintage ones that come up, but not many new ones.
I love this type of project though, because I think it is a great way to honor the crochet of the past—brought to us by our mothers and grandmothers! Lacy crochet curtains were very popular in their day.
However, I think we should bring them back! That’s why I searched for the best patterns on the web. There will be some vintage patterns, but also some newer ones that I love too!

Types of Crochet Curtains
This post includes a lot of different kinds of crochet curtains. They are definitely not all the same.
First of all, there are full length curtains that go over an entire window. These are definitely stunning pieces, but be careful about the yarn you choose. You want it to be very lightweight so the curtain doesn’t get stretched out from the sheer weight.
There is also what’s called a “valance”—a shorter length curtain that is more for decoration. A valance is usually a much quicker project , and still adds a touch of beauty to your home decor!
Both types of curtain patterns are included this post. I hope you find one you love.

Questions About Crochet Curtains
I thought a great way to end this post would be to talk about common questions people ask about crocheting curtains!
How are crochet curtains made?
The most standard way to crochet a curtain is by making rectangles! They are really not too difficult a project. You can even come up with your own design simply by measuring your window and making rectangles to fit the way you want (in whatever stitch pattern you please!)
Of course, as we’ve seen in this post, there are also other sizes and shapes of curtains that are not necessarily rectangles. It really depends on the style you’re going for.
Why is it so hard to find crochet curtain patterns online?
Crochet curtains do seem to be a hard type of pattern to find online. My theory is that people don’t make them as often as they used to. There are plenty of vintage curtain patterns available, but not so many new, “modern” ones.
For this post, I tried to find as many unique curtain patterns as I could, but it wasn’t easy!
What is the best yarn for crochet curtains?
Most commonly, people use crochet thread to make curtains. This results in a lacy, doily-like curtain. While you don’t have to use crochet thread, it is best to use something lightweight. Crochet curtains are heavy since there is so much material hanging, so you don’t want to use heavier weight yarns.
Crochet curtains are an amazing project to make. They are not as common as they used to be, which would make your design even more unique and stunning when people see it! Crochet curtains are a great way to celebrate the crochet of the past, brought to us by our mothers and grandmothers. I hope you liked this post and found the perfect pattern to get started on right away!
