Crochet Baby Blanket Patterns
Baby blankets are always some of our most popular patterns, and any of these favorite crocheted baby blanket patterns of 2017 would be just right for any baby in your life. If you, a family member, or friend is expecting, what better way to celebrate a new life than with a cozy crocheted blanket they can treasure throughout their childhood? The best thing about these crochet baby blankets is that they're quick to work up since they are smaller than a traditional afghan.
Granny Square Patterns
Granny squares are the building blocks of so many crochet patterns, so it's not surprise that these granny square patterns were favorites this year. Granny squares are great for crocheters who are just starting out and might be intimidated by tackling a full-size afghan right off the bat. Beginners beware that this collection of granny square patterns also includes afghans worked in the round, such as the Crocehted Granny Lapghan.
Ripple Afghan Patterns
Ripple crochet afghan patterns make for visually stunning blankets that everyone will be impressed by. The zigzag pattern is made from a series of increases and decreases, meaning that it is super simple to achieve a beautiful chevron pattern. Even though crocheting a ripple afghan isn't complicated, friends and family will be so impressed by the resulting afghans. The effect is especially striking when done in alternating colors, like the Green Granny Ripple Pattern. However, monochrome ripple creations like the Water Ripples Crochet Afghan (pictured) are just as gorgeous!
Lace Afghan Patterns
For those who are looking to create an elegant and ornate blanket, look no further than these favorite lace afghan patterns. These beautiful patterns feature intricate designs that are beautiful to look at but not too difficult to work up. Most of these patterns feature lighter weight yarn to help achieve their signature lacy look, but check out the Cozy Feather and Fan Crochet Afghan if you are looking for a heavier blanket made from super bulky yarn.
Fast Crochet Afghan Patterns
These fast crochet afghan patterns are great for when you are in a time crunch. Perfect for crocheters who want to make a product without too long of a process, this collection of quick and easy crochet afghan patterns features mile a minute patterns, afghans made using only one or two skeins of yarn, and more unbelievably fast patterns.
