19 Favorite Peppermint Patterns for the Holidays


When you’re looking to add some festive cheer to your home for the holidays, break away from the traditional red and green color palette and try something a little more bright and refreshing: red and white stripes, just like a delicious peppermint swirl! There’s something so incredibly cheery about the color combination, and it always brings to mind peppermint mochas, hot chocolate, and candy canes hanging on a tree. Christmas crochet blankets in this color combination can be used for a longer time than traditional Christmas afghans, too, so you can lounge around with a Peppermint Stick Afghan [3] until winter starts fading away.

There are so many ways to incorporate this color combo into your crochet blanket patterns: you can make individual granny squares [4] that each contain a striped or swirled pattern, you can work a project back and forth in a striped or crochet ripple pattern [5], or you can create your own peppermint swirl and work up a round crochet afghan [6] that features swirled red and white stripes. This list of 19 peppermint crochet patterns for the holidays contains some of our favorite candy cane designs… and we’ve even included some from our friends at AllFreeCrochet [7], so there are some scrubbies, hats, and scarves thrown in, too! Whatever you’re after, we hope you can find just what you’re looking for in this collection.
