Multicolored Scrapghan


Take those small leftover scraps of yarn you've saved from previous crochet projects for this colorful crochet afghan. This Multicolored Scrapghan uses all your discarded yarn scraps and incorporates them into a solid-colored background to make a colorful patchwork afghan. The more scraps you want to work into your afghan, the more skeins of solid yarn you'll need. Make this blanket as long as needed so that you can finally use up all your yarn scraps for something warm and cozy.

How many motifs are needed to make this size,which is ????

I'm not positive on how many motifs are necessary to make this design. If you contact the designer directly, she should be able to tell you. Thanks, Editors at AllFreeCrochet


I managed the medallions just fine....but how do you fit it all together? There should be additional instructions for putting the pieces together because a beginner isn't going to know. Also, do you make solid medallions between the color scraps? That's what it looks like but I don't want to assume.

after you finish the first motif you will start another one when you get to round four you will join it to the other motif when you make the ch 3,

How have you joined it? I tend to have a bazillion lose ends that with use, poke out and look AWFUL. So I have given up on motif blankets.

i agree most scrapghans say you need at least 1 skein of each color. That is not a scrap. Your afghan looks easy, I will try it. thanks Julia, Barb Taylor

you're welcome.

If you are unsure about whether you have enough of a colour to complete a medallion, crochet one medallion then weigh it on your digital kitchen scales. You then can weigh your off-cutty bits of wool to know if there's enough of that colour to complete a medallion. Works a treat for any sort of patchwork crochet.
