U Scrap Afghan


Updated April 21, 2016
(20 Votes)


The U Scrap Afghan is a great pattern to use if you have a ton of leftover yarn as it can be made with many colors. Crochet afghan patterns are always fun to put together, but using bright and bold colors is what really makes them stand out.

The download does not work.

Not worth the effort. Took me to a download site too, and not the pattern.

the link took me to a bunch of free downloads, not to the pattern

I made this last Christmas. It came out very nice. What I like about it is you can make it as long as you want. Very easy pattern.

I love the look of this afghan and I am definitely going to make it. Made the windchime afghan from this site and have received many more requests for me to make again using combos of their favorite colors. Can't wait to begin on this one.

Yes I would absolutely make this. I am disabled and use afghans a lot and I love colors. All of them

I love this pattern. I'm going to be making up a ghan with scrap yarn and this is going to be the pattern.

Yes I would make it. I think it is beautiful.

I think it's a great idea - I have so much leftover yarn - not enough for a particular project - but perfect for this type of lapghan! And the rectangular shape is unusual and much more user-friendly!

Yes, I would make this. I like the rectangular pattern; a change from the more often used square.

Yes, I would make this. I like the colors. Very easy pattern. Thanks for sharing.

yes, I would definately make this. However, I would put more colors in it. The brighter the better. As much crocheting that I do, I would have plenty of colors.

No, I would not make this, the pattern reminds me for of a rug than an afghan.

Yes, I would make this, but I would put a wider edging all the way around it. It would be fun to make it entirely out of small scraps of yarn where no row is all one color, and I would trim all ends to 1.5 inches, tie each end in a knot close to the crocheted work and not tuck any of the ends in! I designed a very cute baby blanket using the tiny little granny squares of only one round each, crocheted them tog as I went, and left all the little tails out and tied ea one in a knot close to the work. Can you tell I really hate taking the time to tuck all those pesky little yarn tails in?

I have also used left over cotton yarn for dishcloths for myself and they are colorful and economical . I make my girls a yearly dozen and have so many gift cloths too so I have alot of yarn-overs ! I have also crocheted a hexagon afghan in stripes of leftover yarn for giveaways . Makes things colorful for sure !

I will definitely try this afghan pattern. It sounds like a good way to use up my leftover yarn. No matter how many times you make it,it will always come out different.

best scrap pattern I have come across Dawn

I love this afghan and it also would make a good rug pattern.

This almost leaves a tear in my eye, it reminds me so of my Grandmother's braided rugs. All clothes were cotton (except Woolen ones) so she never had to buy any fabric. The family contributed clothes which she cut into bias strips, sewed many together then ironed both sides into the middle, then folded that again & ironed.....Then she crocheted them into the most wonderful, washable rugs. They lasted forever. I still have two that I should repair...that takes time few of us have anymore. NOW, I can use my stash to make a beatiful rug! I just hope I have Grandma's color sense!!She only went to the third grade (she came from a family of eleven children, so all pitched in). So she trained as a professional seamstress---her bridal gown was gorgeous. Please redact--I didn't know I'd get into this like a maniac!!!

Crocheting rag rugs was how I learned to crochet when I was six. Reminds me when I was pg with my third son and very close to delivery date and I needed something to occupy my time. My mother had a lot of very small fabric scraps left from making clothes etc and she asked me if I'd crochet her a rug out of them. I cut all the little scraps in strips, sewed them end to end. That oval rug was the most colorful rug I've ever seen before or since! So not one little scrap of fabric was wasted.
