Hannah Cross is the designer featured on Make It Crochet today for this lovely V-Stitch Blanket. I’m sure you’ll love her work as much as I do!
This blanket is the first in a series that she has planned called “Yarn Stash Series”. It looks like the perfect project to reduce your stash and also to use up small amounts of scrap yarn you have.
Use any and all colors you like and you should be able to also use any yarn weight you like, as long as you keep to the same yarn weight you’ve chosen throughout. If something is just a tad finer or heavier, try changing your hook size mid-stream to see if that helps so that the rows don’t get too wavy or stretchy.
Although you can certainly experiment with changing yarn brands throughout, I don’t recommend that you mix yarn content.
For instance, I wouldn’t really recommend a project with part of the rows being wool or cotton while the other rows are acrylic. Different fibers require different care instructions. You don’t want part of your blanket to felt in the washer, for instance. You could possibly get away with using blends, though. For instance, using some acrylic but some acrylic/cotton could work.
You’ll just want to experiment before making a final decision.
