I think this may be the ultimate stash buster blanket! You use 8 strands of worsted weight yarn together. The designer made two large rectangles on straight size 50 needles. I would be tempted to use circular needles and just knit it all at once. Pinned this one to make!

I am going to try this blanket on size 35 needles and first I am going to make a small rug to check the weight, texture, and gauge. I have too much yarn and a lot of projects mainly in my head. :)

@wanitathomas 4996711, This pattern is estimated to take an average knitter approx. 10 hours to knit. It may take others longer or shorter, depending on experience. --Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Good morning I have debated for weeks about sending a comment on this project so here goes hours devoted to which part--gathering your left overs and creating a color scheme joining the strands and winding don't just place each color in a container or you will have a major mess if you are using different yarns--they stretch tangle- one LARGE Ball at a time worked best for me You still have to keep the tangles out i knitted my blanket in row increments and then changed to a new LARGE BALL I have row blocks in each half It is gorgeous or will be when I finish sewing the two halves together It is very heavy to handle but will be WARM enough for the ARTIC I am considering a spot for it to be seen but probably not used often due to its weight and the fact my winters orRead More spent in Florida Over all it was fun frustrating challenging and will be nice to look at when I finish sewing it together Thanks for the opportunity Wanita Thomas

Hi, I am the designer of the 10 hour afghan. I named the pattern based on the time it took me to knit, and I even published a time log of my progress. http://www.chemknits.com/2010/02/10-hour-afghan-time-log.html The 10 hours includes knitting and sewing time, and trimming loose ends. It does not include time I rested, massaged my hands (the needles got really heavy) or had to wait to order more yarn when I ran out. The time also didn't account for the time I took to dye the yarn, but I did not wind the yarn into large balls before starting to knit, I just gathered 8 strands and let the balls fly on the floor. I hope this helps!

Rounded up my extras and ready to give this one a go! Thanks so much! LOVE IT!

Rebecca i just had to tell you that even though I'm an absolute beginner, I know beautifully Awesome when i see it..Great job..the colors are so perfect and beautiful on the eyes..thank you for sharing your picture..i saved your article so i can use it in the future.. carolyne

Thank you for the russian join link, printed and ready to use! :) That was always a problem with big knited blankets, thankfully not anymore! I also love this blanket and hoping my hands can take it because I am the queen of stash yarns, hehehehe....my husband now knows not to say a word when I come it with yet more yarn...was a problem in the beginning but he realized that is my love like his tools...so now I have a replacement to keep me very busy now that my one and only is away at college and then off to the USAF, so I had to find something to keep me occupied! LOL He even took me out last night to buy more...now that is LOVE! ;) Once I get the kneedles will definately give this one a try! Thanks! Hubby will be happy too! LOL

Can't wait to dust off my needles and give this a try. Thank you for sharing.


Can this pattern be converted over to crochet? I am not a good knitter right now, not enough practice yet. I have been crocheting for about 20 years and never really got into knitting until it was time to retire. so just recently got some kneedles and kinda/sorta been teaching myself. But would really appreciste this in a crochet form? Thanks.

Now that I've found the PERFECT pattren all I have to do is collect my left-over yarn :]. I thank you so very much to whoever found this pattern.

@Crafter 2256867 - Yes, you could use different weights of yarn to accomplish this pattern using the same needle size and instructions. The "secret" is to always use a combination of your yarns in your yarn stash that are equal to the weight of the yarn suggested in the pattern. For instance, two baby or fingering yarns held together would probably equal worsted or Aran weight yarn. Here is a good yarn size chart on this page http://knitfits.theotherbell.com/yarnsize.htm Hope this benefits you!

I love this pattern. I have lots of little balls of yarn in my basket and lots of time. It would be perfect project tor this summer, and then to use next winter during the cold SD winters.

This looks like a wonderful project for all that yarn I have collected in my stash. It may be in my future since I need a fast, cuddly afghan for our new guest room. Thanks for the great idea. Linda M.

can i use different yarn not quite as thick to make the "my remnant throw blanket" i have a lot of yarn if this is possible. would i still use size 50 needles. how many stitches and strans could i use?
