There is nothing that makes a house feel like a home quite like a handmade knit or crochet afghan. What we love most about them is the number of absolutely gorgeous knit and crochet afghan patterns that are out there to create.

Each and every afghan, crochet or knit, is made up of its own unique collection of stitches and designs. Create them with your favorite color palette and they are an item that will be cherished for years to come.

Because we love the new rustic farmhouse style that is so popular in home decor right now, we have found some beautiful knit and crochet blanket patterns to give your living space a touch of that comfy, cozy feel. 

Here we have gathered some of our favorite free crochet and knit afghan patterns.
