I have had several crocheted afghans in my life. Some were made as a gift when my mom was pregnant with me and I still have them and others were ones given to me by friends who have awesome talent or ones I bought at garage sales and thrift stores. Crochet afghans are incredibly durable and hold their shape pretty well. They are amazingly warm and easy to wash. Just like with other crochet pattens, there are so many ways you can make them as well. If you are looking for a new and exciting pattern to work on this winter, here are 10 free crochet afghan patterns to get you started.
