12 Free Crochet Lapghan Patterns

Make a crochet lapghan to keep around for those times someone is a little cold while on the couch or in chairs.

12 Free Crochet Lapghan Patterns

Does crochet lapghan patterns sound like an odd phrase to you? If you're a crocheter, then you may be familiar with the term. If not, we'll explain. A crochet lapghan pattern is about half the size of a regular sized afghan or even a bit smaller and we have a great collection for you.

With 12 Free Crochet Lapghan Patterns, you will find some of the best designs. The purpose of a lapghan is to just cover a small portion of your body your lap. Crochet lapghans are a great alternative to full-sized blankets and the shape is a bit different too. Perhaps you've been meaning to learn how to crochet a blanket, but were intimidated by their large size. If so, lapghans are a great place to start!

What I personally love about lapghans is that they're great for anyone. I've even seen a few wheelchair crochet lapghan patterns which are great not to have all that extra fabric hanging at the bottom.

I'm always cold so it's nice to be wrapped up in a blanket, but sometimes I just want to cover my legs and feet, so a lapghan is perfect! For more information about lapghans, read our article, What Exactly is a Lapghan? by Michael Sellick.

PLUS! Did you know that corner to corner crochet is a great choice when it comes to lapghans? The size is perfect but can be made as large or small as you want. Watch this video tutorial and learn this amazing technique.

I retired from working as the Activities Director at a local assisted living facility, and I cant say enough nice things about Lapghans. Some of our regular residents used them, but our wheelchair bound residents really appreciated them. Having a little blanket spread across their legs prevented many small objects from falling to the floor, too! This wonderful collection has something for every style, so take some time to explore the options here.
