Crochet Sampler Blanket great for stash busting

02/16/2022


If you are an avid crochet person like myself, then you also probably have a ton of yarn that could go through some stash busting. I currently sitting on 3 totes with yarn that is waiting to become something new.

Something that I love for this is a crochet sampler blanket but even if you don’t go through your stash to do this, this kind of blanket is amazing for combining different stitches into something beautiful.

This can be a fun challenge to see how many crochet stitches you can master in one blanket or just select a few that you think will look great together! I love trial and error projects since they don’t have to be perfect because they’ll look amazing in the end. There are so many stitches, textures, and colors you can play with thus making it a great yarn stash-busting project.

This could also be a great #90daysofcreativity challenge by either doing 90 stitches or a row a day for 90 days. If you are not sure where to start, I have a crochet mini-course with a crochet stitch library inside Crochet 101 so you can learn new stitches or just start with a crochet. The Sampler blanket makes a good beginner project because you get to explore as well as design your own blanket.

Check out the blankets here (if they are not in my shop they sold but I am happy to crochet one made to order for you).

I was born in Bad Homburg, Germany. Growing up in foster care I spend a lot of time alone creating art or writing stories. In 1992, when I became pregnant, I discovered crochet and emersed myself in the craft. I also immigrated to the US and throughout the years, I explored various mediums of art – such as macrame, cross-stitch, and painting - while raising my kids. In 2005, I wanted to create my own wood beads and discovered the wood-burner and fell in love with it. It’s at the same time I had the nudge to start my handmade business part-time with the intention to be full-time someday.

But life derailed for a little while, as I became a special needs parent, enrolled in online college twice, and am the proud owner of a B.S. in Accounting and an M.S. in Mental Health Counseling – which eventually led me to start my coaching + consulting business.  

Throughout the years I kept coming back to three mediums: coloring, crochet, and wood-burning, and am now balancing two businesses! With most of the kids creating their own lives and only the youngest left, I get to create art and teach people how to make art, while also helping people with their goals. It’s having the cake and eating it too!

I live in Central Virginia with tons of inspiration out of my backyard, the blue ridge mountains, and the events I attend!
