Yo-yo pattern, free from Priscilla Hewitt. Each yo-yo is only 2 rounds of DC, about 2" across - perfect for using up scraps. So many different looks depending on color choices, with three different joining methods given. If an afghan is too tedious, these make a cute scarf, trivet, or potholder.

If you’re like me and save even the smallest “fiddly bits” of sock/fingering yarn for future use, then you’ll like this project. You create your own ball of yarn by knotting those bits together - nothing like being thrifty and artistic. Check out Hipknitizer’s Yarn Nuggets on Etsy if you want to pump up your scrap stash.
Woven-square scrap afghan, by Tami of A Simple Country Gal. She gives good basic general instructions of how she made this starting with crocheting short strips, which is a great way to use up odd small scraps. I think the blue joining and border give a nice unifying effect to the mosaic of colorful scraps. It reminds me of a quilt. . . . . ღTrish W ~ http://www.pinterest.com/trishw/ . . . . #crochet #blanket #throw
