Turn your leftover yarn into something special.

Make a beautiful and unique blanket from leftover yarn.

Whether you crochet or knit, you probably have a stash of leftover yarn, right? Well, it’s time to turn those bits and bobs into something beautiful and useful. Here’s a photo of a blanket I made from my bag of leftover cotton yarn. If nothing else, it is unique!

Crocheted blanket made with leftover cotton yarn. For this one I used the “woven stitch.”

I crocheted this using the “woven stitch,” sometimes called the “moss stitch,” or the “granite stitch.” It works up fairly tight to make a nice thick and sturdy blanket. I started with three colours, crocheting one row of each and carrying each colour up as I went along. Rather than try to explain it, here’s a great video that will show you how to do this easy and interesting stitch.

A few more photos to show off all the pretty colours.

I hope this inspires you to make something beautiful and useful from your leftover yarn. Thanks, so much for dropping in. I hope you’ll come back again, soon.
