Sigh. There's something about a crochet scrap blanket that I just love. Taking bits and pieces of yarn leftover from other projects and crocheting them into something beautiful just makes my heart sing. A New Year awaits. Full of possibility. It's time to cleanse my life of the baggage and extra things to make my journey into the new year light and free. And even though these bits of string don't seem like much, sometimes they speak of unfinished business. Maybe they hold me back. Or maybe it's something completely different: like they beckon me to a far off adventure! This year we're making another crochet scrap blanket together! I'm so excited!
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.
Strawberry Lemonade. Sigh. Just the sound of those words takes me to a summer day on my front porch. And then this: a deliciously coral in a favorite stitch? Well, I couldn't help myself. My friend got me totally hooked on the Red Heart Ombre line. It is just beautiful. I love the transitions from light to dark and back again. And a baby afghan is the perfect show off. Just 2 skeins of yarn for the afghan and a coordinating solid for the border and you are off on a blissful crochet adventure. Your favorite chair. Feet up. Great beverage by your side. And settle for a nice, long spell.
Be still my cold wintery heart because I have a brand new love.. this gorgeous crochet heart blanket! Friends, meet the Heart and Soul Baby Afghan! This darling afghan uses readily available (and affordable) yarn for a fast fun make that is sure to be a hit! I'm completely in love with the hearts, ombre vibe, bobbles and lacey bits on this stunning baby crochet heart blanket. I could gush on forever.. but this pattern speaks for itself!
The There You Go Throw is a two tone join as you go blanket made of 6-inch squares - graphic, eye-catching, and so much fun to crochet! Fans of My Big Fat Greek Wedding might understand the inspiration for the name! When I was trying to come up with a name (always the hardest part!), I was talking to some friends about how it reminded me so much of Greek graphic patterns - especially the colors! - and the movie came up. My friend Terri loves it as much as I do, and we decided to quote the character Gus, who loves to explain how things are Greek (even things that aren’t), and always ends it with ”…there you go!” Much like some of Gus’s explanations, this blanket isn’t Greek, but it is join as you go (aka quick to crochet), based on the basic granny square, and ready to make in any size desired for the perfect gift or personal pick-me-up - so There You Go!
