Using Leftover Yarn Blanket

We all have those leftover pieces of yarn piled up in a bag in your closet somewhere. Well, I took some of the leftover pieces and made them into an afghan.

Make in one afternoon!

With the treble crochet, this blanket is very easy to do and it works up so quickly. I went through my yarns that had at least about 1/2 of a skein of yarn. This helped be able to make the same colored rows a bit wider, which means ; less yarn ends to sew in at the end. If you are like me, this is not the best part of crocheting.

Therefore, this would be a great crochet pattern to make if you are in a hurry for a gift for any special occasion.

Materials: I have made this in a number of leftover colors. Most likely Red Heart Yarn. I do not have the color number. I used mauve, white, lilac, teal, and dark red.
