Scrap Crochet Lap Blanket
If you are a knitter or a crocheter like me you have lots of small balls of yarn stored in a bag or container that is left over from previous projects. I decided I would make Nanna Doll a lapghan. or a lap blanket. She’s just turned 88 years young earlier this month. Even the extreme hot weather we had a week or so ago she didn’t really feel too warm. She has trouble walking so I think with her not going out side into the actual heat, she was just feeling the coolness of her home.
I, well Grand Dad Al really, managed to get a few balls of black double knit yarn when Aldi where having there big yarn sale a few weeks ago, so they have come in really useful to go with this project.
I decided to use the Feather and Fan stitch as I love how it looks. It is also easy crocheting for when you are watching TV. I was playing yarn chicken with some of the balls. In fact one I had to go back and tighten my tension a bit to get enough to finish the row.
It measures 55 inches by 52 inches. So perfect for covering her lap and legs whilst sitting watching TV or even when we have her out in her wheelchair.
There is still a couple of ends to weave in, that I found whilst taking this photo!. Really thought I had got them all, but there always seems to be one or two that escape when you think you have finished right?
I’ve still got lots of oddments left so might try to make another one for the back of the sofa. Great for pulling over if you are having an afternoon nap or just on a cold evening.
What are you making? I would love to hear.
