Hello, friends, and what a week it’s been! Between missing a day of classes because of illness, and working on several projects simultaneously (crochet and schoolwork), the week has flown by without a post from me, much to my chagrin. However, that will soon be rectified with today’s pattern roundup and the addition of new free pattern using some lovely, soft chenille yarn! (Isn’t that a fun word? Chenille.)
Since Autumn has graced my Northern friends with cool weather and even snow (I’m looking at you, Ohio!), afghans are great to cozy up in and also use up stash yarn. So, without further ado, here’s my collection of Simply Striped Crochet Afghans to inspire and get those hooks moving!
1. Color Block Afghan by Cara, at caracory.com: Definitely a great project for stashbusting! Think of all the colors…
2. Bias Stripes Afghan, at Yarnspirations: Worked from corner to corner, the stripes are made up of rows of little squares. Personally, I like the colors used here, but pick your colors to suit your taste (or whatever is on hand!).
3. Dots & Dashes Throw by Darla Fanton, at Red Heart: I love the soothing color palette in this afghan!
4. Herringbone Stripe Afghan by Bernat, at AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns: Ooh! Here’s your chance to try out the herringbone stitch; it’s lots of fun!
5. Loopy Love Blanket by Tamara Kelly, at Moogly: If you haven’t checked out this great treasure trove of patterns and pattern collections, then you should put that on your To-Do list right away! This blanket can also be made in 7(!) different sizes, according to your preferences!
6. Fall Striped Afghan by Rhelena, at CrochetN’Crafts: This afghan conjures up long walks through golden leaves and hot apple cider by a fireplace.
7. Granny Stripe Blanket, at The Purl Bee: A traditional pattern with a modern twist, this stylish afghan is great for showing off that minimalist vibe.
8. The Afghan Striped, at Lion Brand: The more stripes and colors, the better, when it comes to this playful and vibrant afghan!
9. Aunt Dot’s Afghan by Carol, at Wolf Crochet: Somehow, this particular afghan seems more feminine to me; perhaps because of the ruffled edging or the beautiful color contrast. I’d put it in my living room!
10. Warming Stripes Throw by Glenda Winkleman, at Ravelry: I love everything about this afghan, including the fringe (which is strange because normally I hate fringe).
Hope you enjoyed this week’s pattern collection! If you’re interested, you can follow me on Twitter or like my page on Facebook now! Just look for the icons at the top of my blog’s homepage. Happy makings, friends!
