When I think winter, obviously the first thing that comes to mind is the cold. And the snow. And maybe peppermint mochas. But if you’re about to embark on a new crochet project and you’d like to capture that wintery feeling, these themes are a little abstract to translate into the form of, say, a crochet afghan. Instead of focusing on the more popular aspects of winter, why not focus on something a little less well-advertised – like the evergreen? Beyond just being used for Christmas projects, evergreens stay, well, green throughout the winter and are often the signature pop of color on a barren landscape. They make me think of ski lodges and mountain retreats, and they smell so fresh and distinctive that a whiff of anything evergreen-related immediately puts you in a wintry state of mind!
Today’s post is dedicated to the lovely evergreen and to capturing a little bit of that wintry beauty for yourself. These 11 crochet afghan patterns, in various shades of green, will put you in a calming and natural state of mind. Freshen up your living space with a cool green afghan, and it’ll keep you warm all winter long!
These gorgeous green afghan patterns are the perfect way to bring a little color into your home this winter. Whether you’re planning to throw one over the couch as a decoration or cuddle up with one beside the fire, these free crochet afghan patterns will help you spice up your space!
