Crochet Scrap Yarn Blanket

So I started a blanket…hmmm…almost a year ago? It’s a scrap yarn blanket. I actually have a bunch of projects going, for real and in my head, with scrap yarn. I made a few baskets, I have a baby blanket/playmat in the works, and also a BIG blanket. The one I’ve been working on for a year or so.

I am using a N/15 10.00mm hook and either 3/4 strands of worsted weight yarn or 1 strand of bulky weight yarn.

I am doing a combination of single crochet (SC), half double crochet (HDC), and double crochet (DC) all in back loops only (BLO) to give it a TON of texture and some stretch. It’s wide enough to go across a king size bed, but not really hang over but I only have about 2′ worth of rows worked up. It’s slow going, since I pick it up when I need a “this isn’t a perfect project” project.

Isn’t it beautiful so far? I just love all the colors, and it’s amazing how just randomly grabbing colors is actually fitting together so nicely!

What scrap projects are you working on?
Best, Brianna

  1. I love it! My scraptastic blanket was all HDC but I really like the way yours looks! Glad you commented about me following on your old blog, turns out I didn’t see the this post and when I found it I was able to follow as Life and Yarn – nice title by the way!! Okay I’m going to be poking around at your other posts. 😀
