Free Crochet Patterns Unusual Afghans

Many crocheters love making Afghans. However, sometimes, when you have made many Afghans, the patterns all seem similar, or you may be looking for a quirky or unusual Afghan for a gift for someone special, whose taste is out of the ordinary, to suit a particular décor, or room style. There are so many free crochet patterns for Afghans on the internet that it can be bewildering trying to find the unusual, amongst all the usual patterns. Here are some suggestions on how to find extra-ordinary Afghan patterns on the internet. There are some beautifully unusual Afghan patterns on the internet, among them, you will find the special pattern you seek.

There are some charming and unusual free patterns and the following are remarkable. The Pointed Star Round Ripple, despite its unusual shape is a relatively easy pattern. The colours shown in the pattern’s picture are suitable for men, but using different colours to crochet this afghan would make it a suitable gift for anyone. Maggie Weldon’s Loop Stitch Ripple Afghan is certainly unusual. It would look great in sophisticated colours, or black and white, for a Hollywood style bedroom. Change the colours to pinks and purples, and make a luxuriously extravagant throw for a Barbie-mad little girl’s room, in more somber colours it would make a great ‘animal skin’ throw for a dinosaur mad little boy. The Teddy Bear Blanket Buddy would make a super Christmas, birthday, or welcome gift for a baby, or small child. 'An Afghan to Curl Up In' is a pattern crocheted in panels, but is rather different to the usual panel type Afghan. This afghan has a sophisticated elegant air making it fit to grace any room.


Even More Extraordinarily Special Afghans

Skimming through the links in the free crochet pattern directories, some names are intriguing. Crochet Pattern Central has some exciting Afghan links, including The Counting Sheep Afghan,Art Deco Crochet Quilt, Rainbow Wedges Babyghan and the Tree of Life Afghan. Those looking for a Christmas Afghan will find a Christmas Tree Afghan at All Crafts, also a distinctively different sampler Afghan.
