Wheelchair Lapghan Pattern

By: Kathy from
Updated December 13, 2017

This easy crochet pattern is a nice gesture to make for nursing homes for those in wheel chairs. Worsted weight yarn was used to keep this blanket nice and cozy. This will keep you or a friend warm. Use a favorite color for a great personalized gift, or use a mix of colors for a fun spark of color.

Oh yes. As suggested, this afghan will make for a lovely gift to nursing homes to cover the lap while on a wheelchair. I was thinking only of babies but yes, old people need love and care, too. Here's the link to the pattern http// == lchair-lapghan-pattern.html

am not able to pull 45 crochet patterns from my save patterns

Look great. I can't wait to get started on one. I may need it myself as they think I have stress fractures in my foot!

I have been making this for over a year in different variations and love giving to the veterans .I rate this a 5 star thanks

Looks not only pretty but also easy enough for me to make.

Don't know about this particular afghan's size. I make lots of afghans for hospitals and those confined to wheelchairs. My typical siize is 36" by 48". For the average person this size covers the lap and legs without getting caught in the chair's works. Adjust the size according to the individual. The 48" afghan can also be laid over the seat and brought around the persons legs and lap after they are seated. This way the backs of the legs don't get cold; and the afghan is always at hand when needed - not in another room. (Of course if the person is incontinent, they probably won't want to sit on their afghan.) And remember, no fringe - it gets caught in the wheels. Hope this info helps

does anyone know the approximate completed size of this wheelchair afghan? I checked out the pattern instructions on Kathy's link page but couldn't see it. thank you for any feedback

I made this with all worsted weight and it measured about 30x35.

On the page, close to the picture on the left side, there is a comment highlighted in green. It says something like "click here for crochet pattern". If you do that you can just highlight the parts you want to print.

Hi ceecee117 6129165, You have to print the pattern from the page that comes after you click the link. The best way would be to highlight with your cursor the portion of the page you want to print, right click to copy it, then paste it into a word document and print from there. Thanks! -Editors of AllFreeCrochet

For some reason I cannot print this pattern. Do you know why? There is nothing wrong with my printer

My brother is in a wheel chair, I want to make him one he could use for a long time. I hope this one will work for him.
