Yarn Stash Buster: Baby Houndstooth Blanket

Yarn Stash Buster: Baby Houndstooth Blanket www.graceelizabeths.comAre you ready for another “Yarn Stash Buster?”  This crocheted baby blanket may look familiar to those who follow our blog.   It was created by using one of our popular patterns using worsted weight yarn (#4). Purchase it HERE.

Houndstooth Afghan Pattern by Grace Elizabeth's www.graceelizabeths.com

The pattern is for a full-sized afghan; however, I simply adjusted the beginning chain to a smaller length to create an appropriate size for a baby.  If you would like to use Bulky/Super Bulky Weight yarn for your baby blanket, here is this pattern.

Mound of Yarn

The yarn was claimed from my large pile of donated yarn.  Do you see the green and white skeins above?  This particular blanket used only two colors but you may not be fortunate to have such a large yardage in your stash. No worries, you could easily change colors as often as you desire.

In this close-up picture, you can see the combination of yarns and texture of the stitches.  I love the look of this blanket and can’t wait to give it away.

What are you going to make with your yarn stash?

Happy Yarn Stash Busting!
