Free Crochet Afghan Patterns

This list of free crochet afghan patterns will give you lots of project ideas and the great thing about making a crochet blanket is that it keeps you warm while you’re making it – a cozy perk!

If you’re looking for the perfect way to relax, look no further than wrapping yourself up in a comfy crochet afghan. Laying on the couch with a cup of tea under a cozy crochet blanket is the ultimate way to unwind and recover from a long day.

Looking to take your relaxation to the next level? Break out a hook and your favorite yarn and start working on your next afghan crochet pattern. Crocheting is well known to help relieve stress and get your zen on. In fact, crocheting is a form of movement meditation.

If you’re a beginner who’s just learning how to crochet, crochet blankets, especially baby blanket patterns, are a great choice for a crochet afghan pattern to start on. There’s a style for everyone and many of these blankets are beginner-friendly, using easy crochet stitches like the double crochet and the half double crochet stitch. 

Perhaps you’re looking to take things to the next level – I’ve also included some more challenging crochet afghan patterns that will work to improve your crochet skills and techniques. I’m also including blanket designs that use classic stitches like the ripple stitch, moss stitch and the always popular granny stitch.

If you know how to half double crochet (one of the most basic crochet stitches), then you can easily make this easy afghan. It uses super bulky yarn and a large crochet hook so it works up relatively quickly.
