Spreading Christmas Cheer: 12 Knit Afghan Patterns + Pillows

By: Morgan Metcalf, Editor, AllFreeKnitting

It happens every year. One minute, you’re enjoying those cool, autumn nights. The next, winter is here and Christmas is right around the corner. There’s no better way to escape the harsh winter chill than to snuggle up with a cozy knit afghan. Since most knit afghan patterns require only basic knitting stitches, you don’t have to be a professional to learn how to knit a blanket and join in on the fun. You’re literally stitches away from adding your very own knit afghan to your home.

In the spirit of the holiday season, we have compiled a list of our Christmas knit afghan patterns. Like other knit afghans, these cozy knits will not only keep you warm and toasty throughout the night, but they also make for the perfect home decorations for the Christmas season. Simply drape them over the back of your couch for an added pop of holiday cheer in your home.

That’s not all! We’ve also included some of our best Christmas knit pillow patterns to add to your other decorations. Put them on display and wow your guests with your Christmas knits. Whatever you choose to knit, you’re sure to find a new holiday tradition among these beautiful knitting patterns.
