Diamond Crochet Blanket ( Ultimate scrap-ghan Project)

 The Ultimate Scrap Yarn Bursting Blanket Pattern.

scrap yarn blanket crochet pattern

I actually started crocheting these diamonds one night, by sheer accident. But I soon realized I could use up all those little odds and ends of yarn, you know the little balls of leftover yarn that are too large to throw away yet not small enough to crochet any one particular thing.

This is one of these projects I have at the side and when I just want to mindlessly crochet for the sake of crocheting something, not needing too big a project, but just keep those hands busy.... ( yup we've all been there) what's great about this is, I never get bored sometimes even when I am working another project and get to the end of it, I see I have enough yarn left and quickly whip up another diamond piece. Any color, the only thing I do need to watch out for is the difference in yarn weight. If it is thicker I go down a hook or finer I go up a hook, but I mostly work in double knit or Aran so it's not too much of a problem.
  Probably like a LOT of us, yarn-holics, I have boxes of small balls of yarn just sitting around in bags collecting dust. You know those ones you think you may need one day yet your yarn stash is just getting bigger and bigger.
I refuse point blank to throw away good yarn, so I wanted something I could make using these odds and ends of wool. BUT some of the leftover bits of yarn were not long enough for even an individual row to make a blanket, not even big enough to perhaps make into squares, so I wanted something that still would look attractive yet not all half-finished rows and join.
So Let me introduce the Diamond Crochet Blanket, perfectly symmetrical in its formation easy to make by simply increasing and then decreasing at the ends of your rows, this is an awesome way to use up those small scraps of yarn and those odds and ends that are just not enough to throw away, yet not big enough for another project.

on the first half of the diamond, you will increase your work by creating 2 single crochet in the LAST stitch of each row on the second half of the diamond. you will skip working into the first st, and work 2 single crochet together in the LAST stitch of each row

Row 40: sc in next st, 2sc together in last stitch, ch1 turn. (2)
Row 41: 2sc together in last stitch, ch1 turn. (1)

fasten off by pulling a long length of yarn through and pulling tight to finish. (these lengths will be used to sew the sides of the diamonds together.

I like to collect all the diamonds and block them as I go.As you can see I have several different types of yarn but by going up a hook or down a hook size I cna achive the SAME size of diamon.

diamond scrap yarn blanket crochet pattern

I was given a huge bulk bag of Cream Aran but it was a bit of a nightmare to crochet with as it kept untwisting and splitting so the diamonds were small enough projects for me not to get too frustrated at.

I started to put them together like THIS. But you could arrange any colorways you wish

Now I am still adding to this blanket and have nowhere near finished it.
But I will be wanting to square it off eventually so I will need to make Several HALF DIAMOND , several triangles, and 4 Quarter Diamonds for the corners.

Visit back soon to find these patterns added for you.
I am going to put this up on Ravelry and would LOVE to see your projects.
