The Falling Leaves Afghan Pattern is just what you need to cozy up on a chilly fall evening with a book and a cup of cocoa. This pattern has a unique design that looks just like autumn leaves in midair, falling to the ground. This easy crochet blanket would be gorgeous in any color, but to make it even more perfect for fall, work it up in a rust, red, or golden yarn. You will love to enjoy the results on many evenings at home this autumn.

I'm doing this one now, in a Patons soft teal. It is beautiful and it is working up very quickly. Not at all difficult. Glad I found it. I had tried three other designs with this yarn, two knit and one crochet, and they didn't look good at all. This is just the right amount of detail. Not too simple, and not so fussy that it all gets lost in the bulky fluffiness.

A good pattern to make a winter throw. It is beautiful in the solid color because of the stitch pattern. The color teal is a good pick for color because it does remind you of fall. I would think this would work up quickly. Not a good carry along project but one to do sitting watching TV. The stitch is not difficult to do. Thank you.

I don't see how many to chain at the beginning??

Hello arwen924 7400452, thank you for bringing this to our attention! The pattern has been updated with the correct information. -Editors of AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

This sort of peacock blue is my favorite color so I'll definitely be using the same color when I make this pretty blanket.
