Crochet Stained Glass Scrap AfghanIf you are a true yarn lover like me and I believe you are you just can't bear to part with any of it, even scraps. But what do you do with 1/3 ball of green yarn, or 36" of a lovely red? Make a huge afghan! :)

This is a very easy pattern, very enjoyable to just sit while watching TV and crochet away. Sometimes I like to place certain complementing colors near eachother. Sometimes I just grab whatever is closest and go to town! Often times I pair everything with a large ball of black yarn to tie everything in together, it's up to you.

I have made a few of these so far and each one is unique, they remind me of stained glass windows. Plus, this will help work that stash down. Have fun making your own!

Total Time: 15 hours?

Yield: 1 large cozy blanket

Source: My stash was calling my name...

Supplies:

  • "I" crochet hook
  • Tons of odds and ends yarn scraps and lonely partial skeins
  • Scissors
  • Embroidery needle for weaving for weaving in ends

I crochet afghans for a charity so I have lots of yarn on hand. I sometimes end up with short end pieces of yarn and use to throw them away. Now I save them, join them together and end up with my own variegated yarn.

No waste now for what I once considered throw aways. Most of my afghans are granny squares so it works great color-wise.
