crochet:: the week in afghans…day 5

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.

    1. 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…
