Plaid is one of the big fall trends this year, and crochet is trending right there beside it. And luckily for those of us with hooks and yarn (and without a trendy budget), there are plenty of free patterns that combine the two! Vintage to brand new, I’ve collected 10 free plaid crochet patterns!
10 Free Plaid Crochet Patterns
- Tartan Plaid Wash Cloths by HappyBerry: Washcloths are the perfect way to try new techniques – like a swatch, but you get something useful when you’re done! And these are too cute! Video tutorial included with the written pattern!
- Woven Scotch Plaid Afghan on Free Vintage Crochet: This vintage pattern dates back to 1947 but has a classic look that’s lasted to 2013 – and well past I reckon! Makes me wish I were going on a picnic! This beautiful version was crocheted by Ravlery user abitknottie!
- Plaid Slouchy Beanie by Patons: Super cute hat pattern sized for todders to big kids!
- Noro Plaid by Jessica Suzanne, on Make it (Messy): Noro yarn has a beautiful gradient, and this scarf pattern uses it to full advantage!
- Burberry Baby Blanket by Faythe Saxton, on Amateur Malcontent: Is there any more famous plaid?! And 6 skeins of yarn will run you far less than the “real deal.”
- Plaid Baby Blanket by Lion Brand Yarn: The original photo makes it hard to see the plaid, so check the Ravelry gallery for some closeups – it’s a good one!
- Country Plaid Placemat by Erica Jackofsky by About.com: The perfect pattern for a country or vintage kitchen!
- Lumberjack Flannelghan by Michele Shirley on Inspired Crochet Design: This one might have to compete with Burberry for iconic plaid status! Oh this takes me back – specifically to the plaid shirt that belonged to my dad… and that I stole when I went off to college! Wondering if I should make it up to him by making this blanket?
- Plaid Pillow by Red Heart: Use motifs or squares to make a plaid/gingham pattern! Great throw pillow with lots of inspiration for other projects!
- Plaid Crochet on Crochet Kitten: Lots of stripes and color changes make this plaid look complicated – luckily there’s a photo tutorial to take you through it!
