Fall Foliage Afghan
The Fall Foliage Afghan was inspired by the colors of the falling leaves in Autumn! You can use this gorgeous and warm blanket all the way through Thanksgiving. Or customize it with whatever colors you wish. This stitch pattern creates a solid and thick fabric, perfect for fighting off that Autumn chill. For the majority of the blanket, you will use only half double crochets and double crochets. The staggered stripes create visual interest and because of the four rows per stripe pattern, all of your ends are on one side of the blanket.
Mocha Ripple Throw
This is the Mocha Ripple throw and it’s a gorgeous mix of warm, deep browns and creamy neutrals. It reminds me of a cup of coffee or hot chocolate after spending the day out shopping in the brisk Autumn air.
Spicy Diamond Blanket
Spice up your crochet with the Spicy Diamond Blanket. This blanket gets its name from the colors used because they look like pumpkin spice, cinnamon, etc. It's a cool twist on a harlequin blanket with its diamond crochet motif. This blanket pattern would make a fantastic fall blanket or you can change up the colors to make it match the decor in your house or your favorite colors.
Crochet Afghan Fall Colors
This is a quick and fairly easy crochet Afghan pattern. Perfect for the fall this Afghan uses Sport weight yarn and still works up fast! The stitch used is a variation of the waffle stitch / side saddle stitch and I was first introduced to it while crocheting a Christening gown. I think the stitch makes for a really nice texture and drape for a lighter throw. I made a few of these in different color combinations and just love the ombre effect!

Fall Pumpkin Blanket

Lily’s Garden Striped Granny Afghan
You may be wondering how to go about selecting colors. I knew I wanted to use about 9 different colors to represent squashes, lettuces, leaves, grass, grapes, and berries. With that in mind and images of autumn, I was off to select some of my favorites. I ended up with 13. I felt if I used them all, there wouldn’t be much of a contrast between them all so I decided to start with 5 as a base color (main color) and 4 to highlight. My ratio for creating the pattern would be 2 rows of base color to 1 row of highlight. The entire blanket is created this way!
Autumn Shell Blanket
It’s officially crochet season and what better way to start with a nice Autumn Blanket. I really love how the shell stitch looks and how wonderful the color way worked itself out.
