One of my themes this year has been to enjoy the yarn that i’ve already purchased in the past and to be more intentional about my purchasing. Have I been 100% successful at it? Nope! This project, however, has brought me lots of joy and allowed me to use up lots of scraps & partial skeins of yarn, which I’ve enjoyed a lot.

Because this square is about enjoying your stash, it’s possible to work it up in either dk weight held single, or with two strands of fingering weight held together. You can even use both in one square - I have!

Yarn yardage requirements are given in weight as well as yards and meters, because of the scrappy nature of the pattern. You may find it easiest to weigh a scrap cake to determine whether you can get a whole or partial square from it.

Check the photos (left) for blanket sizing and yarn requirement tables.

The pattern also includes weight (grams) required per row of the pattern, so you can know if you have enough of your little scraps left for a tiny row or two!

At my gauge this square comes out to about 8”x8” (20 cm x 20 cm), which is what sizing and yardage estimates (below) are based on. If you use a larger hook/thicker yarn or smaller hook/thinner yarn, your yarn requirements will change.

This pattern is also available for free on my blog (linked above) as well as on YouTube. The YouTube video includes a step-by-step tutorial for making this square.
