The Mindless Knitting, TV Watching, Scrap User-Upper Afghan
Note: The Knitlist site has been taken offline, but the pattern is still available through the Internet Archive.
Use up your scrap yarn. This blanket is knitted in a tube with no sewing. I put all scraps that go together in an opaque garbage bag. You have to not look when pulling the next color from the bag which keeps the knitting interesting, not knowing which color comes next. The blanket would be ideal for beginners or those who want to add color patterning to the round knitting.
