35+ Free Afghan Patterns
Posted By Tipnut On December 13, 2010 @ 3:33 am In Crochet,Knitting | 4 Comments
There are loads of patterns on the net for afghans, but you know me–I’m a bit fussy . Here are my favorite picks of what I’ve found online (both knitting and crochet), and wow–many of these are gorgeous! There are a few throws and lapghans included but they’re easily adjusted to a fuller size if you want. All are free with some including a pdf to download and tuck away in your files. I’ve separated them into two separate groups for browsing. Enjoy!
Quadrant : A great project for beginners, finished size measures 31″ x 31″ but easy enough to make bigger if you prefer.
Zig Zag : Four colors of yarn are used, “Intermediate” skill level and is 52″ x 66″ when done.
All-American Denim Stripes : 50 x 70 inches, not including Fringe. Skill Level marked as Beginner.
Greenway : (pdf) Two rows of cluster stitch combine to form pretty, daisy-shaped blocks of color.
Dublin Country : Three panel designs: Post & Shell; Shell; Basketweave. Measures approximately 45″/114 cm wide x 64″/162.5 cm long.
The Mommy Blanket : This is built up from strips which use front-post stitches to achieve a woven effect.
Joyous : Finished size approximately 48″ x 56″ inches, skill level marked as Intermediate.

DROPS in Alpaca : Made with yarn in 7 colors, will be approx. 100 x 144 cm [39-3/8" x 56.75"].
