Life after college was all gravy until that first student loan bill came in the mail. I had forgotten that I had to pay for all the schooling that got me a job after graduation. My first full time position was at a nonprofit, so the paychecks weren’t much to write home about. Between loans, rent, utilities, and grocery bills, I soon learned that every dollar counts.
Thus began my love affair with DIY projects like the ones you can find on AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns. Sure, making your own blanket can be a bit of a time investment, but if you’re smart with your shopping, you can save a ton of money.
Case in point: Red Heart has a line of yarn that is a frugal crocheter’s dream. Not only are Super Saver Yarn skeins inexpensive, but they also come in a ton of colors. To show how much styles can vary using the same brand, I’ve rounded up some free crochet afghan patterns that use Super Saver yarn.

Looking to bring down your heating bill? Crochet throw blankets are a great solution to high gas bills.

These projects are smaller than bed size afghans, so you’ll have something to snuggle in before you know it. AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns has a selection of intermediate projects as well as crochet throws for beginners, so no one will be left in the cold.
