What do you do with a huge bag of scrap yarn? Make a scrap afghan. This pattern from Luba Davies at Ravelry is the great way to do that.
The pattern was $1.55 in U.S. funds and is for thread crochet. I used a size F crochet hook and used worsted scraps. I altered the pattern by decreasing the double crochets in each row to 3, 4, and 5 for each row. If you use a larger crochet hook either an H or I you would not need to decrease the double crochets. I also made the outside border 1 row less.
My squares ended up being aprox. 9 1/4″. I made the afghan 4 squares by 5 squares and yes every square was a different color. I joined the squares as I crocheted. I really dislike making lots of squares and then having to sew them together. Here is a video on how to join as you go.
What is your favorite scrap afghan?
