If you crochet often, you probably have quite a bit of yarn leftover from earlier projects. Don't just let that yarn sit in your craft closet. Make this Leftover Yarn Striped Afghan. This simple crochet pattern will have you crocheting at a mile-a-minute. Arrange your scrap colors in whatever order you like, alternating dark and light. If you don't have enough colors on-hand to finish your striped crochet project, no worries. You can always start this project now and add to it as you collect more scrap yarn.

Yes, okay. I admire the author for this Leftover Yarn Project. Very creative and practical. No yarn ever will go to waste.

Don't overlook this pattern! I, like so many crafters, have countless balls of scrap yarn leftover from previous projects. They often sit around, collecting dust because we can never think of what to do with them. Why not use them here, and create something useful! You use up your scraps and end up with a warm and comfy blanket!
