Use up all those leftover balls of yarn you have laying around with a colorful scrapghan!
what is a scrapghan?
If you are new to the term scrapghan, it is exactly what you are thinking … an afghan made from scraps.
scraps + afghan = scrapghan
Why Make a scrapghan?
Here are a few of my favorite things about making a scrapghan …
- reliving the memories of past projects and perhaps the special occasions or times in your life that go along with them
- the opportunity to try out a new pattern or technique without worrying about ruining your new or expensive yarn
- a chance to get creative and play with color combinations
- and of course, using up all the leftover yarn!
There are so many afghan patterns that would work for making a scrapghan. My favorites are of course a granny square blanket or even a granny hexagon blanket. But there are so many options. Just see for yourself in this extensive roundup of stashbusting crochet afghans.
