When you are handed down yarn and have leftovers from projects, you make unique blankets wrapped in charm.
Complimentary colors to start out. Then rows of alternating colors until they are completely gone.
When the blanket is square a border can but put on. A plain double crochet can finish it off nicely. I have added this as well as a shell border.
I have been working hard on this adorable gift! Every morning while sipping my coffee I sit and crochet a row onto this blanet. It is a scrap blanket. I have taken the left over yarn from other blankets or projects and have been combining them to make one big beautiful baby blanket for a friend. No pattern, because sometimes life is best with some leftovers and unplanned. Yesterday evening I had about 4/5 of the blanet done. Today we had some driving to do and I have 5 more rows done! The husband drives and I crochet and we listen to good music and crack funny jokes. I have a little bit of time on my hands this weekend and am hoping to have it completed. It should be complete with about 15 more rows. I have a bunch of different size crochet hooks. I personally prefer a metal hook to that of plastic, it has a bit more weight to it and it stays cooler in my hands as I use them. Plastic can heat up quick and then my hands can sweat and swell. I also have trouble when my old tired hands start to wear out my grasp gets less tight. When I have a metal needle because of just a bit more weight it doesn’t slip or flip out of my grasp as quickly.
i am hoping to have the last few rows complete and then tie in the ends and put on a boarder all this weekend. Better pictures will be coming! Stay posted!
