With this crochet afghan pattern you can make a beautifully designed Crochet V-stitch Blanket for your baby's nursery. Red Heart Multi-colored Yarn, but you can also use solids if you wish while you work this up using single crochet and double crochet.
Unlike the original virus crochet blanket, this free crochet blanket pattern uses several different techniques to achieve a multi-colored blanket. Based off of the always-trending virus blanket technique, this pattern uses a multi-colored yarn to achieve the rainbow of color without having to switch from piece to piece too often. This stunning blanket pattern would be a lovely conversation piece for your living room or could even be worked up as a baby blanket. The delightful thing about virus blankets (and variations) is that you are able to stop when you decide your project is completed! If you're looking for something huge, just keep crocheting. This would also be a great way to use up odds and ends of yarn since you can just keep working them in as needed.
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.

The Vintage Nursery Blanket is a a great on the go summer project. Make each 12 inch square separately and then seam them all together in your favorite way,to make an elegant retro blanket. This project uses elements of Tunisian and regular crochet. Learn the basic Tunisian Knit stitch along with double and single crochet stitches. The model blanket was made with a vintage baby yarn but you can substitute any baby sport yarn to make this blanket all your own.
This modern double crochet v-stitch chunky blanket is a wedding gift. I have had this Caron One Pound yarn in my stash for a while now. Thought it was time to get something made with it. The blanket had to be large enough to cover a queen sized bed. As you can see from the photo, it is large enough. Not too large though so that one or two people can snuggle under it. Additionally, this had to be warm enough to be the go-to blanket on our cold winter nights. Using two strands of yarn makes this a fun and chunky blanket. It also makes for a very warm blanket. I will miss having this cover me up while crocheting when it is below zero here this week. Brrrr. The double crochet stitch is a quick stitch to master and once the pattern is started, there is really little need to count. For me, this makes for a great crochet pattern to work on while watching movies. I think this is a great beginner stitch once you have mastered the double crochet stitch. It is always easy to see where you need to insert your hook in the previous row.
