Scrappy Crochet Blanket

It's so nice to stop by here to share a finished project. My scrappy crochet blanket is all done. It is an absolute riot of colour and I have loved every moment that I've worked on it.




I think the original pattern I started following suggested using a light and dark strand of yarn, which I started to do... but then after a while (and a fair few completed rows), I settled on using 2 yarns with good contrast. 



I used what I had, especially all of those little pieces from previous projects and the really ugly colours that made me wonder why I bought them in the first place.


I used a technical method to measure that this blanket would be a good length for "couch-napping". As hubby is the tallest in the house (for the time being - Mstr 13 is quickly catching up), I got him to lay on the lounge and I threw the blanket over him to make sure his toes were covered all the way up to the tops of his eyebrows. I then added a few more rows, just to be sure.



I started this blanket at around the end of August 2018 - so it's taken me a year, on and off to make it. I went back to my first blog post about it and had at that point had decided to call this the "Includes Bottle Green Crochet Blanket". It should now be called the "Includes Bottle Green and Rainbow Crochet Blanket" because I finished it off last night with some crazy rainbow yarn that I'd purchased from the dollar store a few years ago.

  3. Great way to use up those bits and pieces. It must have ended up quite warm, too, using tow strands of yarn. It is a lovely finish.
