September Snuggles Afghan Pattern
The September Snuggles Afghan Patterns is perfect for just what it’s named for: snuggling up on chilly days in early fall. Fall always seems to come sooner than you expect, and you don’t want to be without a cozy crochet blanket when it hits. This afghan pattern is perfect because it uses a huge hook and jumbo yarn to work up quickly and beautifully. Plus, the simple pattern of half double crochets is easy to learn and remember. Throw this blanket over the back of your couch because you’ll be wanting it close at hand!
