Scrappy Blankets are one of my most favorite things to create. They are typically mindless (like this one!) and hold endless memories. I hope you have so much fun crocheting this blanket, and combining so many memories through yarn!
Scrap Yarn! The sample uses assorted worsted weights, but you can use *any* yarn weight you have scraps of!
7.00mm crochet hook, or whatever size best suits your yarn. Choose one that’ll give you a nice drape.
Scissors and yarn needle
Don’t worry about gauge for this pattern! Keep reading to customize the size of your blanket, or follow the pattern as written.
dc: double crochet
sc: single crochet
[...]: work into the same stitch/chain
slst: slip stitch
FO: finish off
If you would like to make your blanket narrower/wider, simply ch any multiple of 3, plus 1.
dc in the fourth ch from the hook, ch 1, dc in the next st, sk 1, *dc in the next st, ch 1, dc in the next st, sk 1* across. dc in the last st
ch 3 and turn. [dc, ch 1, dc] in ea ch 1 space across. dc in the top of the ch 3 from the previous row.
Repeat Row 2 until your blanket is as long as you want it to be! I continue until my blanket was about 60” long.
The border is completely optional, but I like the nice finish.
sc evenly around the entire blanket, placing three sc sts in ea corner. slst to the first st.
ch 1, sc in ea st around. Place 3 sc sts in ea corner. slst to the first st.
Cut yarn, and weave in any ends you may have remaining. If you decide to block your blanket, I recommend laying it flat, spritz it with water, and let air dry or steam lightly. The sample pictured isn’t blocked.
Finally, enjoy or gift your gorgeous blanket! I would love to see your new creation! Post a picture of your finished throw on Instagram, and tag @thegracefultangle.
