Recovering From a Food Coma? 5 Crochet Afghan Patterns to Cuddle Up With!

You’ve spent the whole day cooking and the last part of the day eating, and all you want to do to recover from that food coma is sit on the couch. Or maybe you’re a guest in someone’s home and everyone is so full, the conversation has slowed . . . or stopped. It’s time for a crochet afghan pattern. These five crochet afghan patterns are perfect for working while in the thick of your turkey bliss. (And you can cuddle up under them with your slice of pie once they’re finished!)

1. Low-Key Afghan, Interweave Crochet Fall 2018

The Low-Key Afghan is a favorite from Interweave Crochet Fall 2018. The blanket is worked in one piece with a singular cable pattern worked up one side. This crochet afghan pattern is an easy one to work up as you prepare yourself for some pie-eating.

2. Easygoing Throw, Interweave Crochet Fall 2018

The Easygoing Throw is the perfect little blanket to throw over your lap as you recover from the turkey and watch the fire burn in the fireplace. It’s worked in one piece, and its bulky yarn and large hook size mean it will work up fast. You might finish this throw before you’re ready for dessert!

If you’re in the mood to pamper yourself after a large meal, the Relaxing Motif Throw is the project to start. The motifs are quick and calming to make. Simply join them all together to create a throw reminiscent of snowflakes for the chilly weather!
