What do you do with your left over scraps of yarn?
I’d been building up a real stash of yarn scraps, particularly 4ply sock weight yarn because that’s what I use most and I decided last year I wanted to start a memory project and start using up all of those little scraps of yarn.
I tried knitting mitered squares but I didn’t enjoy picking up the stitches much and as this was going to be a big project I decided to frog it and try to find something that I was going to love.
I then started to crochet mitered squares but they are really sturdy and didn’t have the kind of softness I wanted the blanket to have, so I frogged that one too!
Third time was a charm for this project because on my third try I tried a join as you go hexagon motif and my snuggly shawl yarn blanket project was born! :)
So I started crocheting hexagons…
…And more hexagons…
..And more hexagons!
