Great Idea for Scrap Yarn!

This is a really cool afghan sent in by Sue Kreitzer – a super idea to make squares with left over yarn skeins. Use all different colors, types of yarn and stitch designs and create a very personal afghan. She used stockinette, zizag, criss cross, ribbing and open braid to create so many looks.

The finished size is 72″X 56″   – makes a great bedcover.

Thank you Sue for the idea!

  1. Sue–I love the blanket!!! What a great idea. I’m sure my husband would love if I started using up all the yarn I have laying around!! How wide and long did you make each square?

  2. Faith,
    Hope you read this. I cast on 26 stitches and did 32 rows to make an 8 x 8 square. Depending on the yarn you use, you may have to adjust the number of stitches. It is a great way to use left over yarn.

  3. Sue, thanks for the measurements. This is definitely an idea I’m going to try sometime. I have sooooo much yarn….

  4. Sue~ This looks like a perfect next project for me. I’m really just a beginner and just wrapped up making a couple dozen scarfs for my annual sister’s retreat and I have a ton of left over yarn.. I love it! Thanks for sharing!
