The ultimate in scrap afghans! I would be concerned that the chain parts might become weak and break apart, but it sure is colorful!

Cute!!! I have a whole plastic tub full of scrap yarn so I will definately be saving this pattern for when I get done with swaps. Thanks for posting!

Terri said...

Absolutely beautiful!! And your method for joining is great. Thanks so much for sharing. What kind of yarn (fiber and weight) did you use for the spread?

Jen G P said...

Wow, that is BEAUTIFUL! Someday I just might put all my scraps into something like this.

Great job!

Clotilde said...

Oh my! Breathtaking afghan! Are you still sane after completing it or do you have crazy yo-yo dreams? I really like your blog. It is very inspirational...has actually got me swatching for this yo-yo!

Hi Chris, thank you so much for the pattern. the yoyo's are ace. A few weeks ago I was wondering what I could make from Yoyos as I think they look cool. The afghan is super fly! I am making a bag using your pattern, I have put a link to your pattern in my blog. I hope you dont mind.
Peace and Light to you and yours

This is stunning, I am going to attempt this using all the odd bits of wool that are taking up space in the back of my cupboard.

How I get the pattern?

glor said...

This is so beautiful. I have a basket of scraps, now I know what I will be doing with them....thank you!

I love it! Can you tell me if you used fingering yarn in there as well? I have a ton of that in scrap and would love to include it, but I'm not sure if the size would match the WW yarns.

Thanks Laura

Chris Simon said...

Laura, I used mostly Red Heart Supersaver, but there was likely some of the Simply Soft or other slightly lighter weight in there as well. But there's no sport or fingering weight in mine. The joining method is pretty forgiving of slight differences in the size of the yoyos. Give it a try and see what you think of the different weights together. I think as long as you spread out the odd ones pretty well, it should be okay.
