I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things about the Holiday Season is snuggling up under a cozy blanket, with a big bowl of popcorn, and watching Christmas movies with my family.

And that’s why today I thought I’d bring you a collection of the best Christmas crochet blanket patterns I could find, to help you add a little festive coziness to your living room this Holiday season.

As always I have trawled the internet to find some wonderful free crochet patterns to share with you. And I’ve thrown in some paid ones too because I think it’s important to support small businesses. There are some crazy-talented crochet designers selling Christmas afghan patterns online these days for less than a Caramel Waffle Latte!

Speaking of hot drinks, why not grab yourself a cup of cocoa (with marshmallows on top) to get you in the festive spirit while you have a browse through the festively-fabulous Christmas blanket pattern ideas I found for you!
