13+ Free Scrap Yarn Crochet Blanket Patterns

If you’ve been crocheting or knitting for any length of time, you may have a substantial stash of scrap yarn — leftover bits of yarn from projects, or random single skeins that aren’t quite enough for the specific project you had in mind. Scrap yarn crochet blankets are the perfect solution, because they can use up a lot of scrap yarn. Some of these patterns are motif projects, which can be worked slowly over time and then seamed, while others are crocheted in rows or from corner-to-corner, so you may need to set them down periodically so you can build up your yarn stash again! In this collection, I’m including 13 of my favorite free scrap yarn crochet blanket patterns from around the web, along with links to 6 free Underground Crafter patterns that would look great in scrap yarn!

  • Striped Blanket by Malloo: This scrap yarn crochet blanket highlights the double crochet stitch.
  • Stash Buster Blanket by Annie Design Crochet: This pattern includes several border rounds to unify the look of the finished blanket.
  • Jagged Scrap Yarn Afghan by Meladora’s Creations: This pattern is available in Twin and Twin XL sizes and includes a video tutorial for the special stitch pattern.
  • Scrappy Corner-to-Corner Blanket by My Poppet: This pattern is made with a “magic yarn ball” which minimizes the number of ends to weave in. It links to a photo tutorial for making your own “magic yarn ball.”
  • Chevron Scrap Blanket by Maria’s Blue Crayon: This scrap yarn crochet blanket is made using corner-to-corner rectangles which are seamed together. The pattern links to a video tutorial for the corner-to-corner (C2C) method used in the blanket.

  • Stash Busting Blanket by Rich Textures Crochet: This motif blanket uses a dense stitch pattern for a heavier weight. The pattern includes a video tutorial.
