Hi there! Thank you so much for joining this fun crochet along! We will be making a blanket over the course of 16 weeks that is perfect for using up your scrap yarn! You can find all the details HERE.
Our first stitch is the granny stripe! It’s a classic stitch that works up pretty quickly. I alternated two colors for my granny stripe. I also didn’t weave in any ends. I added fringe instead 🙂
