Free plans listing

I found this listing of free plan sites on the forum at wood carvers illustrated.

Well, at the risk of alienating everyone in the woodcarving world, I am going to post a list of websites offering free patterns. People ask for patterns, and we post the links and then they get lost in the ever growing maze of the Wood Carving Illustrated Forum website. Some of these patterns are for beginners, some are more advanced. They're not sorted by category, i.e. caricatures, relief, etc.--they're just listed. Some have been around for a long time, but they're great. So, when you're bored and need something to do, look through these links, and I'm sure you'll find something. If not, google on "free wood carving projects" or "free wood carving patterns", and then maybe you'll come up with some new ones. If you do, be kind enough to add the links of what you find to this thread so that others can use them, too. Same if you have some favorites that I haven't listed here. Thanks!

Anyway, here's what I've found so far:
