Let’s get Scrappy

We’ve been in stay at home mode for 6 weeks. I won’t lie, it’s been challenging at times. I find myself sitting staring out the window on some days, yet other days I have more energy than the squirrel running up and down our tree in the backyard.

I can’t wait to get back to a normal life of shopping for home decor, wandering around my LYS, and visiting with family and friends. Soon.

So while I’m in the house, I might as well go through my stash. I found 5 single skeins of Lion Brand Thick and Quick. Super Bulky yarn. All different colors. I have nothing slated for these single skeins, so I found a way to use them up.

I didn’t ever plan on writing up the pattern for sale. This is a freebie for you. A stash buster. It’s the kind of project that just lets you sit and be still. A project that lets your mind wonder. It’s the most simple scrappy project yet.

Find your favorite 5 single skeins of Super Bulky yarn and a size N (15) 10mm hook and get started…

Chain 78 with your first color choice. (Color changes happen when you want them to happen. I recommend changing on the same side of your blanket. Be creative.)

Row 1: hdc in the 2nd ch from hook, hdc in each chain across. Ch 1, turn.

Row 2: hdc in each stitch. Ch 1, turn.

Repeat row 2 until you run out of yarn or desired length.

I changed colors whenever I got tired of one color. Usually 2 to 4 rows, and sometimes way more. Like the red, which I just used the whole skein. Change colors on the same side. When you go to weave in your ends (honestly, it took me 10 minutes), you’ll just whip down the side. Unless of course, you ran out of one skein before you hit the end of the row. Oh well… It’s scrappy, right? Who cares! 🙂

This truly is a scrappy blanket. If you have more than 5 skeins, use them. Mine is a small lapghan.

Enjoy this fun project friends. If you find yourself on Facebook, please come join us!
