7 Beautiful Peppermint Crochet Afghan Patterns
Peppermint Throw – Crafts By DD
This beautiful afghan is made out of lots of classic peppermint shapes, all weaved together. It displays the iconic swirling pattern with such clarity that everyone will instantly recognize what you have created.
Lots of Crafts By DD’s customers have easily turned this partner into other items, too, like pillow covers. This should tell you just how versatile this pattern is!
Twisted Candy Cane Afghan – Past Patterns Palooza
This candy cane pattern might not be the typical design you were after, but we all know a candy cane tastes like peppermint, and this beautiful afghan will bring the Christmas spirit to any home!
Past Patterns Palooza specializes in making vintage patterns, which means finding specific yarn brands can be difficult. Don’t be put off by the search, though, as substitutes in our technological age are often more durable and have deepening colors.
Peppermint Bliss Throw Afghan – Red Heart Vintage Pattern
This pattern has been around for several years and, in my opinion, is the penultimate peppermint afghan. The pattern is free and works-up in individual pieces, if desired, before piecing it together.

Peppermint Stick Christmas Afghan – Crochet Glenda
Crochet Glenda’s peppermint pattern is super cuddly and warm. It not only matches the seasonal atmosphere with its red and white colors, but it also matches the cold winter needs with its thick and tight weaving, which keeps you toasty.
The pattern itself isn’t obviously a peppermint design; however, if you like your aesthetic a little less “on the nose,” then it might be perfect!
Christmas Baby Blanket – Crochet C2C Lily
Crochet C2C Lily’s crochet design gives you four pages of instructions to help you build this beautiful baby blanket.
The green background makes the classic peppermint swirl hard candy more vivid than before, and the candy cane border is thick enough to stand out as its own feature.
Peppermint Stick Inspired Afghan – Pattern Museum
This one-of-a-kind afghan pattern creates a peppermint stick effect by teaching you how to inlay fringes throughout the design.
The fringes travel in a zigzag pattern to look like peppermint sticks, while the red background fills in the blank spaces for an inspired textured effect.
Vintage Peppermint Candy Afghan – Past Perfect Patterns
So far, all of our patterns have been using reds and white, and none (not even the other vintage pattern by Past Patterns Palooza) and used green.
Green used to be the iconic third color in a hard peppermint candy, and seeing Past Perfect Pattern’s design, we think it is due to a comeback!
