Crochet Afghans and Throws Free Patterns

Updated on February 24, 2015

Crocheted afghans and throws are used as great gifts, to decorate sofas, chairs, and to keep warm while reclining on the sofa or resting in a chair. They can be made for any season; light lacey ones to denser ones. Afghans and throws can be created with lovely patterns and many different colors and styles. The chevron stripe is a very basic crochet pattern.

Many wonderful crocheted afghans and throws can be made by mastering a few stitches and practicing to create stunning crocheted items. Crocheting an afghan/throw takes time to create because of the size. Also the amount of time depends on the size of wool and crochet hook. The bigger the crochet hook and size of wool the less time it will take to create the afghan/throw.


The finer the wool and more delicate the piece the longer it will take to create. The process to create an afghan/throw is very simple with the knowledge of basic crochet stitches. Elaborate patterns can be made but if you are just beginning a plain simple pattern is the best choice.

      Hi there, a beautiful read! I love to crochet, but can no longer hold the hook for a long period of time, my hands are too painful!

      This was very well presented, with a good choice of examples. So maybe we will get to see some more? Thanks for the pleasure of seing these crafts, and have a good day!
