Classic Granny Square Blanket

However, in the flood of modern patterns, let’s bring the square baby blanket back to the 70’s with a new color palete. Indeed, everyone appreciates the granny stitch, especialy as a gift blanket.  Why? Well, it works up very quickly and it’s not complicated at all. Thus, here is a classic granny in a slightly new form, where the white rows give it a more calm and integrated look. All the color rows, however, allow you to use up any stashed yarn you have.

Jagged Scrap Yarn Afghan

For this project you will need: HOOK: 5 mm hook or size H hook for the US YARN: All the scrap yarn colors were worsted weight yarn 4 ply US, 10 ply AU Also the Off white color I used in between as well. I was able to get 10 rows of Off white before I had to change to a new skein. I used 2 and a 1/2 skeins of it, but I didn’t make a border. If you wish to, then I would grab a third. I didn’t want to use much of this color because it’s a scrap yarn afghan and don’t want you to have to go get more yarn. About the color pattern Since this pattern uses scrap yarn, I won’t be telling you which colors to use. I used this color wheel to help me organize my color choices. I’ve never been a fan of the mixed color of scrap yarn afghans so I decided to do mine in a more organized fashion starting with my Maroons, Reds, Oranges, Browns, Yellows, Golds, Greens, Blues, Purples, Pinks and back to the beginning of the color list. Feel free to go with what feels right to you. This Jagged Scrap yarn afghan is made using a stitch I discovered while playing around with yarn. I don’t know why all my discovered stitches mostly use two stitches to create and this one is no different. Lol. But other than the butterfly stitch this one is surely the most easiest one to recreate! Let me take you step by step on how to make this stitch so you can use it in making your own scrap yarn afghan to use up some of your left over wool.Jagged Scrap Yarn Afghan

Black and White Granny Square Blanket Throw

This beautiful black and white granny square afghan is easy to crochet. This blanket consists 5 different black and white designs. Making 4 of each square. Have fun laying them out to create a unique look. Add a double crochet border to each granny square, then join the squares. This was my second granny square blanket I had ever made. Therefore, I think this would be great for anyone to master. While black and white yarn was used for this pretty throw, it would look great in other color combinations too. There are also video tutorials to help with understanding the directions. Enjoy making your blanket too.Black and White Granny Square Blanket Throw
