Stash-Busting Crochet Afghan
I looked up one day after several years of receiving these thoughtful gifts and found that I had a box full of yarn that would be unusable for the projects I typically do. Much of it was cheap acrylic yarn or in colors I’d never use and much of it was in amounts too small to be very useful.
A while ago I posted this simple bulky crochet afghan pattern. It’s still one of my most popular posts. This is a variation on the same pattern but it uses smaller weight yarn, tripled, to achieve the bulky look.
The result is this colorful afghan with subtle stripes. I use this blanket on my bed and love the bulky warmth it offers on chilly nights. It’s the perfect size to snuggle up in with a good book or to place over one side of your bed if you and your partner like different sleeping temperatures (my husband likes to be cold when he sleeps; I do not.)
