More free afghan patterns: Crochet Afghan Patterns, Knit Afghan Patterns, Baby Blanket Patterns



Mile-a-minute afghans are created by knitting or crocheting long strips that are then sewn together. This type of afghan-making is very portable since you only have to bring one strip with you at a time if you need to grab your project bag and go.

Granny square afghans are timeless and are made by knitting and crocheting a specific number of same-sized squares, then joining them together into one blanket. The beauty of granny square afghans is that you can use different types and colors of yarn and different square patterns to combine into one beautiful afghan.

Motif afghans are similar to granny squares in that you crochet or knit different pieces to join, but they're typically not square pieces and can be made in any geometric shape from triangle to circle. This type of crochet pattern is also sometimes referred to as a join-as-you-go since many people like to join the motifs based on a grid pattern as they are completed.

An afghan is a blanket or shawl that is knitted or crocheted from yarn or thread. Afghans of various sizes are typically draped over sofas or large chairs for decoration. They're also great to use for napping and warmth! Afghan blankets are normally homemade and used as gift items. Aside from the traditional, one-piece afghan, there are other types of fun to make and popular afghan patterns.

Knitting yarn or crochet thread used with original afghan pattern may be a discontinued yarn or thread.
