35+ Free Afghan Patterns

Posted By Tipnut On December 13, 2010 @ 3:33 am In Crochet,Knitting | 5 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!
