What exactly is a lapghan? A crochet lapghan pattern is about half the size of a regular sized afghan or even a bit smaller. They're typically used while a person is in an upright position. Lapghans are not very wide but long enough for legs.

Excellent for hospitals and elderly.
Perfect for limited space on a chair.
Quick and easy to make.

With this collection of free crochet lapghan patterns, you will find some of the best designs. 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! Discover some of our top patterns below, including free easy crochet lapghan patterns for beginners.

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.

Lapghans - or as I call them "half-aghans" - are great for decoration, to warm chilled shoulders or legs, nap-tmes, etc. They're just the right size to practice new patterns and test color combinations. Or, for unexpected gifts, craft fairs, using up stash yarns,...
