Crochet A Trunk-Full O' Fun!
Scrappy Steps Afghan
This is a scrap design I created to use all different lengths of scraps.
This has been translated into German! See this blog.
There are video tutorials on making this project.
This is the first, which links to the rest:
Ch 8. dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across.leaving a tail for fringe, end off. (6 dc counting turning ch as 1 dc.)
Attach new color yarn to bottom of turning ch. ch 8.
dc in third ch from hook and in each ch across. sl st in top of ch-3 of previous color, ch 3, dc in the back loop only of each dc on previous color. (12 dc, with a step up.)
Next color, repeat the same way. This time, sl st in the second ch-3 and dc across (blo) making 3 steps. continue in this manner until the piece is the width you want.
Now instead of beginning in the bottom of the ch-3, join in the TOP of the ch-3. repeat the pattern until your work is the height you desire.
Now end your color leaving the last 6 sts of each color un-worked until you are back down to 6 sts in the new color. end off. either fringe to blend in the tails or draw them into the work. Your work may need to be blocked. Working BLO helps keep your sts from pulling to the right.
I suggest in the video that you work in the V in the top half of the double crochet, Some are unclear what I mean by that. Here is a diagram I made:
