Christmas is just a few months away which means that if you haven’t started working up Christmas presents for your grandchildren, you should probably get going! Handmade Christmas gifts are always a great idea: they’re very easily personalized with your grandkid’s favorite color or school colors, and they’re a sweet and sentimental gift. Throughout the years, my grandmother made me various crochet blankets through all of my favorite color phases. I have some pink crochet baby blankets from my infant days, a variegated blue granny square blanket from my grade school days and a gorgeous purple and white crochet basket weave blanket from my college days. I still use them to this day!
Besides working in color schemes, you can always work up a crochet blanket that plays off of your grandchildren’s interests. From food-related snuggle sacks (yes, they exist and yes, they’re amazing) to crochet blankets inspired by superheroes, there’s a pattern for everyone. All of us at AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns want to help you narrow down your search with these 12 crochet blanket patterns for your grandkids. Enjoy!
