4505 Long Live The Scraps

Wasting or throwing away yarn-- no way!! It’s impossible to picture even the smallest amount of yarn in a trash can. Let’s help these neglected scraps, leftovers or single skeins to new glory and purpose.

This is a recipe for a blanket which is worked in strips. They are knitted together as you go. No sewing! Use any weight of yarn or stitch pattern and create an heirloom.

(This is really a universal recipe, given in satisfying detail, about how to construct a blanket/afghan/whatever using your gauge, to the size you specify, in stitch patterns you like. Enormously empowering and thrifty, too!-- Ed.)
