From Rag to ?!?!?

Seeing so many wonderful projects around the web, mostly afgahans, made from yarn scraps/leftover, I started one of my own last year. Initially, I was thinking of making a yo-yo afghan. (Yo-yo's are small round crochet motifs which are later joined together to make different projects) . Later on, I decided on another style. Good thing with this is that I manage to incorporate the yarn ends during crochet.

This is going to be a very long-term project. I don't know if I have stamina for a afghan. As a rough estimate, an afghan would require around 4000 small squares (I'm near 100 right now) so the finished nature of this project is still undetermined.


  1. Everything looks all tucked in so nicely!

  2. Save your sanity and make a lapghan. Then you only have to make enough to cover your lap or lap and feet when seated.

    With proper directed growth this could easily become a very warm shawl or unusual head-clothe.
    Good luck in deciding!
