Ahhh I do love a good scrap blanket...
Obviously they are brilliant for using up scrap yarn (hence the name), but they are also a nice easy side project to have.
I also find that when doing this I find new colour combo's that I may not have necessarily thought of before.
This picture is one of the many scrap blankets I have done.
It worked up quick and didn't take long to finish.
I just did Half Double Crochet in the Back Loops only.
I love the ridged effect.
Another Scrap Blanket.
This one was a continuous Granny Square.
With this one I just picked out a bunch of scrap balls and put them in a bag.
Then I just reached in a picked one and started working with it.
I love the randomness of it.
Scrap Blankets are sometimes also called Ugly Blankets.
Not sure how I feel about this term, ha!
I get why it's used, but I do not think anything that someone has taken the time, love and patience to make could ever be considered ugly....
I am sure you will see more of these kind of blankets from me, like I said, a great way to use up scrap yarn, they look lovely, and when I have used up scrap yarn.... that just means I get to buy more. haha. I call that a win/win!!
