Mile a Minute Crochet: 7 Crochet Afghan Patterns

These mile a minute afghan patterns are quick to make and look beautiful when finished!

By: The Editors of AllFreeCrochet.com
Mile a Minute Crochet

I don’t know about you, but when I crochet, I like to work on patterns that are made in pieces. They are generally easier to make, and the patterns are repetitive, which means I can get in a rhythm. It’s why I like granny squares, and it’s why I like mile a minute crochet.

Like granny squares, mile a minute pieces are worked up separately and then joined together. But rather than squares, mile a minute crochet makes long strips of crochet fabric that are joined along the edges to make a much larger project.

I love these patterns because I don’t have to lug the whole project around all the time if I don’t want to. I can just throw the right yarn and a hook in my bag, and without too much trouble, I can be working on an afghan. No purse of mine is large enough for an entire afghan, so I definitely need the smaller pieces.

Mile a minute does mean needing to know how to crochet two pieces together, but that can be done as you go, or it can be done in one fell swoop at the end. The nice thing is, all your pieces will be done; it’s just a matter of seaming them up.

If you’ve never made a mile a minute crochet pattern, these Mile a Minute Crochet: 7 Crochet Afghan Patterns would be a great place to start. Pick out some yarn that makes you smile and feels soft against your skin, and make yourself a lovely afghan!

Laid Back Blue Crochet Blanket

This beginner-friendly mile-a-minute crochet afghan is one of our favorites. It looks like a blanket that takes a lot of time and skill to create, but it's actually very easy! You can probably have it completed in a day or two, and then you can relax and admire your beautiful new afghan. The blue-and-white colors look really terrific, but you could easily exchange the blue yarn for purple, pink, or another favorite color to create a unique-to-you design.
