When you just can’t stand the cold anymore or you’ve got a chill you can’t shake, then it’s time to make yourself an afghan. A cozy and cuddle-worthy afghan is perfect for those cold, wintry days or those nights snuggle up by the fire. I don’t know about you, but these are my favorite gifts to make and to receive for the holiday season. Everyone can always use a new afghan! We love showing off our gorgeous afghans by draping them over the couch or on the bed. We’ve even got into the trend of using a “blanket ladder” to store our afghans. All you need is a ladder and you can easily hang an afghan on each rung. Then the afghans are easily accessible to anyone with a chill, and the display looks wonderfully rustic!
Make these free afghan patterns for those you love most. They’re such beautiful creations and our favorite are the super colorful afghans. There’s nothing like adding a splash of color to your winter blues. Plus, these afghan patterns are available for both beginners and advanced crafters. Whether you knit or crochet, you’re bound to fall in love with one of these craft projects. The hardest part will be deciding which ones you’ll make for yourself and which ones you’ll make as DIY gifts!
