Here is a quick scrap yarn project that I just completed. I used two strands of Red Heart Yarn held together to make this super thick, warm and cuddly blanket. The C2C pattern is one of my favorites and I keep going back to it,
I was trying to empty out my yarn shelves of my left over yarn and thought this would be a good way to use it up quickly, and it was. The problem was that as I kept adding rows and it grew, I ran out of stash yarn. So I went to the store and bought more yarn, so in the end, I have about the same amount of left over yarn as I started with!
I gathered up all my Red Heart Yarn and laid it out in the floor to see what I had. I sorted them by amount of yarn left on each skein, putting them in groups by the quantity. I used the small quantities of yarn to start the blanket, and as my rows got longer, I had to have more yarn on hand to complete the row. The color combinations are random, and I did two colors and two rows of each combination.
I followed the free pattern by Red Heart Yarns, which offers written instructions and a video tutorial by The Crochet Crowd.

Now that it’s done, I think it would be nice to make a matching pillow or two. My sister has her eye on it too 🙂
Thanks for reading.
Have a great day!
