30 Gorgeous Afghan Block Patterns

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

If you love to crochet blankets with granny squares and afghan squares, these thirty free 12 inch afghan block patterns are some you will want to add to your to-do list.

Each square can be made using worsted weight yarn (and the specified hook) to create a 12″ square; or you can use DK weight yarn and a 4.00 mm hook to make them into beautiful 8″ squares.

These first 10 lovely squares are part of the Block-a-Week CAL taking place with Official CCC Group on Facebook. These lovely blocks were all crocheted by Dedri Uys (Look at What I Made) and she has provided detailed Photo Tutorials to show you how they were created (with permission from the original Designers of course!).

This week’s FCPF (Free Crochet Pattern Friday) Category is: Crochet Afghan Blocks (12″ x 12″)

I hope you enjoy these free pattern links!

For assistance making the sizes larger Dedri has also written this post: Optional Additional Rounds.

Each link below takes you directly to Dedri’s gorgeous photo tutorial for the square – within her post you will also find the link to take you to the original written patterns 🙂 Dedri’s tutorials are not the complete pattern – you will need to get the free patterns from the original Designers (links are included in her tutorial posts) and then use them with Dedri’s tutorials!

  1. Hi Sharon, Thank you! I’ve updated the post. Only for block 13 there is a coupon code still listed in the notes bit on Ravelry and I tried adding it to my cart and using the coupon code and it seems to still be working. So you may be able to get that one for free still. Best, Rhondda

  2. Hi Pammie,

    You are very welcome! I’m sorry 2 of them are now no longer free – that sometimes happens 🙁 I will add a note that they are no longer free. Thank you for letting me know!

    All the best, Rhondda

  3. thank you so much for those blocks…two of them are not free…which is okay with me…I have been looking for 12″ block to make a blanket out of it…and this came…thank you so much…

  4. Hi sweetie , love your site. Is there all of the blocks together in one pdf or doc somewhere? I ask not out of laziness but expediency I have to use my phone for internet and pattern downloads.thanks in advance 🙂
