Autumn Granny Crochet Afghan Pattern
Keep warm during the fall with this free afghan crochet pattern!
Autumn is the perfect season to crochet an afghan. As the days become chillier, we don't want to be outside in a thick sweater. We'd rather be snuggling with a cozy afghan and watching our favorite TV show. So, if you don't have an afghan lying around in your home (or even if you do!), check out this Autumn Granny Crochet Afghan Pattern. This easy granny square afghan from Bernat Yarns uses bold fall colors to bring warmth into your living room. You'll feel so cozy while curled up in this crochet afghan that you'll never want to leave your home!

love the patterns here...wanted to save to my projects but there is no "save" button...been having issues earlier just gave up but now I'm determined to figure why I can't save the projects anymore????

Hi there! The save button is a gray button located below the project title. At the top of the page, there is a row of six buttons for social sharing (a blue facebook button, a red pinterest button, etc). Among those six is a gray button that says "+ save". That is how you can save patterns to your account. Give that a try and let me know if it still isn't working. Enjoy!

This is another great project for autumn. The colors are just fantastic and perfect for the coming cold months. If you cannot find the exact color mentioned here, you may use the closest ones. It will not change the spirit of the season.

I love these motifs afghans for the portability aspect of them. When I am out and about, I do not have to drag an entire afghan around in my tote bag just so I can work on it. It is much easier to bring along your hook and a couple yarn colors and just work on one motif at a time. My most unfavorite part is the sewing of all of them together. Do you despise that aspect, too?

how do you sew the motifs together? crochet them together or whip stitch?
Aug 30, 2012
I must be missing something. What color is used to sew the squares together?
Aug 22, 2012
I don't understand the motif 1 and motif 2. I am a beginner when it comes to patterns. Please help. Thanks.

@ pdohaney The motifs are the 2 patterns that make up this blanket. They're each a different square, so if you want a more textured look, you can create several squares of each motif. Hope that helps!

I am so glad I found this website. This Afghan looks really easy to make also I'm really anxious to get started on it.... I have done the granny squares before they are very easy anyways to understand make, but the way the article is explained here is alot better than I've seen on other websites or in magazines this one is free so Thank you Kim
