Hello and welcome to p/hop’s main pattern page, where you can see all the different kinds of patterns that have been donated by generous designers to Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF), in order to raise funds for MSF’s life-saving work across the world.

A selection of gorgeous p/hop designs

A selection of gorgeous p/hop designs: which will you make first?

There’s something to suit everyone, from Teeny Tiny Teddy, to the Martini Cowl, as well as plenty of complicated lace shawls and even a vintage sweater design by Muir & Osborne. And there are beautiful patterns for crocheters too towards the bottom of this page.

Have a look at our regularly updated new and featured patterns section to see what is fresh in and top of the p/hops, and then click on the red “Read More” button beneath each different category to see the full range. If a particular picture takes your fancy, click on it to go directly to the pattern page and then download the PDF of the pattern.

Your part of the bargain is to make a donation to support MSF, based on the p/hop principle of “pennies per hour of pleasure”. You can even donate in your local currency!  Simply click the button below:
