How do I use up leftover stash at my house? An ugly blankie.
This one is great for grabbing random skeins 3 at a time. I think it would make an awesome ombre afghan if it was planned out. Yeah, I don’t always plan so much. And I had a baby. All my friends were having babies. I had LOTS of pastels left over.
If you want to make one:
heavyweight ugly blankie:
M or N hook
lots of scrap yarn, like LOTS
holding 3 strands together, chain desired length.
row 1 – dc in 5th ch from hook, * skip 1 ch then dc, ch, dc in next stitch (V st). Repeat from * to end. (make dc in last ch) Ch 3, turn.
row 2 – dc in same st, then dc, ch, dc in each ch 1 sp across, dc at end, ch 3, turn.
Keep adding in random yarn as you run out and make as many rows as you want.
This ends our week in afghans friends.
Next on the docket: pasties
You’ll love ‘em.

I’m genuinely shocked that you call that ugly. How can a blanket ever be ugly???
And I can’t WAIT to see the pasties, after you told me what they are. Hurry up with the post.
It’s more of a silly moniker, really. I actually think it’s pretty cool. Maybe I should call it an unplanned blankie??? PS~pasties are about 1/2 done…I only have tomorrow to get them finished up and take pics, I suppose I shouldn’t be relaxing and drinking wine tonight…
I don’t understand why you call it “ugly blankie” clearly it is beautiful! I love your all your work 😉
You are so sweet!
