This scrap yarn crochet blanket pattern is for all those who have a few small balls of “can’t throw that away” yarn waiting for a project. Battenberg Blanket by Sandra Paul is a very beautiful and wonderful scrap basket project. You can turn it into a very pretty bed covering.
The design is so cheerful and it is bound to brighten up any room you put it in. This is a blanket pattern to consider if you make blankets to donate. You can make it as big as you want or until you get rid of all your scrap yarn.
The hundreds of itty-bitty squares are joined using the Modular Join Technique.
