For a short moment this morning the weather was crisp, dry and clear – and I was transported to an autumn path with leaves crunching under my feet as I hugged a hot pumpkin spice latte close. Of course, this fleeting daydream was short lived when I realized my hair was still wet and I needed a cardigan. When I ran back inside to pull out my favorite crochet cardigan to wear in the office, I spotted an old crochet afghan that was gifted to me by an elderly family member.
That crochet afghan pattern happens to be a favorite of mine, big bold ripples of shell stitch, but it was worked in my favorite Christmas colors – so I only pull it out in the winter months. I was suddenly longing for an afghan crochet pattern to mimic this pattern but in the colors that would remind me of fall, so I can have a cuddly crochet afghan on my couch to watch TV under during the crisp months. As a result, I spent the morning gathering all of my favorite fall-inspired crochet afghan patterns to help me decide which one I’m going to start ASAP. I think I’ve narrowed it down, but I usually don’t decide on the final pattern until I get to the yarn store and see the colors. I’m hoping once I find my perfect colors for fall, one of these easy crochet blanket patterns will jump out at me and say “MAKE ME NOW, WOMAN!!!”
Quick! Close your eyes and think of Fall. What comes to mind? When I do this, I think of rich browns, apple red, snuggly blankets, cider and s’mores. Maybe one of these free crochet afghan patterns will remind you of your favorite Fall sensation.
