Scrappy



I've been working hard on a very large crochet afghan.
(7 feet or so)

It is made up of granny squares and 20+ different colors. This of course means I have an abundance of scrap yarn.

And I have an issue with throwing any sort of left over yarn away. Even the smallest little ball of it. So I decided to whip up a quick baby blanket with my scraps. It is essentially one giant granny square with a shell edging (my favorite edging). Here are the details:


Hook Used: Size I/5.5mm
Finished Blanket Size: 35" Square

Yarn Used:

Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Solids:
Purple
Eggplant
Kelly Green
Mustard
Colonial Blue
Pink
Dusty Purple
Magenta
Terracotta
Sapphire

Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Baby:
Little Boy Blue

Red Heart Ltd. Soft Yarn Solids:
Really Red

Loops & Threads Impeccable Solids:
Aran


Shell Edging:
You can find the pattern for the shell edging on Lucy's (Attic24) blog here. You will need to scroll half way down the page, past the crochet bag instructions, to the "Shell Edging."


That should about do it!
Oh, and another picture of the finished blanket before I go:
