Mindless Crochet Scrapghan

Bust through your yarn stash with this Mindless Crochet Scrapghan pattern. The repetitive nature of this particular crochet afghan pattern makes it the perfect project to work on as you sit and catch up on your favorite TV program. You'll need 4-5 skeins of worsted weight yarn in a single color to complete the pattern, plus a lot of scrap yarn in various colors too add some contrast. Fringe is an optional finishing touch.

I have always been reluctant to purchase those skeins of yarn at yard sales or goodwill stores because I never thought I could use them. When I see projects like these I now know I can use those inexpensive skeins to make a one of a kind creation. Thank you for the inspiration.

The scrapghan looks almost like it is woven when using the stitch the designer made. I dont however like that you have to clip the yarn on every row and leave a tail that will have to be sewed in at the end of this project. That will be a very time consuming task after spending some much time making the actual blanket.

I personally don't go for projects with a lot of color changes. The look is crazy cute, though. I don't know if I'd have the patience to attempt this right now.However, it is made up of basic stitches... I do like the inspiration behind the making of the "Mindless Crochet Scrapghan".

Has anyone actually made this from this written pattern? I tried, and it made no sense. I gave up, and am making a different afghan with my scraps.

I enjoyed reading the story behind the making of this crochet scrapghan which was a daughter's request to her mother to make her a blanket whose main color is green. And the daughter's wish was granted. Here's the link to the pattern https// == afghan-a-scrap-yarn-project/.

Whenever I see the title scrapghan patterns, I think I can use my leftovers. All these seem to be colour co-ordinated. The scarps I have may just finish with one or two repeats and will not give the effect of this scrapghan. I agree with bobbylonardo's comments.

The scraps are just meant to be used for the multicolored portions, not for the main crochet pattern. If you have more varied colors, maybe try using a lighter neutral for the main body of the afghan so that the multicolored scraps really pop! :) Hope that helps! -Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Would love to make this - I have tons of scrap yarn. Only problem is.....when I click on for pattern instructions it tells me website unavailable. I'm giving this 2 stars in hopes it will be fixed. Thank you.

i would love to do this scrapghan but the link doesnt work -(

If you need 4 or 5 skeins of yarn, how is this considered a "scrap-ghan"?

I love this and have a ton of yarn. Only problem is I have brain fog intermittantly pretty bad and I can figuer out the pattern. Any chance you could do a tutorial. I know this is easy, but for the aged easy is not what it used to mean. Haha. Thanks
