General Fall Patterns

Thanksgiving, and especially fall, is all about the fall leaf. Embrace the season, and bring in a bit of fall color to your house, with these cute crochet patterns all featuring fall leaves.

Fall Leaves Afghan Crochet Pattern

If you’re looking for a larger project, try this Falling Leaves Afghan pattern from Red Heart. Featuring rich fall colors and cute leaves, this blanket will keep you warm from the fall chill. If you’re looking for this project to be ready by Thanksgiving, start early, as blankets can be very time consuming.

Fall Leaves Wineglass Decorations

This fall leave pattern is a great way to decorate your guests wine glasses. You could easily rotate the colors in this pattern, so that each one looks slightly different, allowing people to quickly identify their glasses. Or, use different color embroidery floss for the detail. Either way, these wineglass decorations are sure to be a hit.

Thanksgiving Coaster Patterns

Crochet coasters are the best. They’re soft, easily absorb any spills, and are unexpected because most people don’t have coasters made of yarn.

Coasters are a great way to save your furniture and add a little holiday flare. What’s more, they’re a quick project to whip up, leaving you more time to focus on Thanksgiving dinner.

Autumn Leaf Coasters

These cute crochet coasters look just like fall leaves. Try making them in different sizes and yarn colors to achieve different looks.

Gobble Coasters

These cute coasters look just like a little turkey. Great for adding color and Thanksgiving charm to the table. Just be warned, the kids might not be able to keep their hands off of these.

      These are great ideas for fall- quick and easy is nice too during a busy season. Sadly, I don't crochet, but I do knit. Nice hub.
