Everyone has lots of bits of yarn left over from projects and they get put into a bag under the stairs or into the attic and forgotten about. Well now is the perfect time to get them out and sort them into plys, colours etc and make yourself a throw for the garden chair, a picnic rug or a blanket for the caravan. This blanket was made with 14 different colours of Sirdar snuggly DK left over from lots of projects over the years. It doesn’t have to be the same make or even the same ply, just experiment and see what happens. I had all these in a box and just pulled one after the other out and crocheted a granny square and was so delighted with the result that I did another 23 squares and made a single bed sized blanket! I did have to add to this to finish it but I did also use up a huge quantity of my stash so I didn’t mind having to get more.
It is just a basic granny square made up of 14 rounds of trebles and joined together with double crochet and round the edge I finished it off with 14 rounds of double crochet.
