I have just finished this blanket. About 25 years ago i made a shaggy rug, and the blanket is knitted from the leftovers. I used even the smallest pieces. If the yarn was 1mtr I would knit it into the blanket.
The blanket is made from five strips crotcheted together. The edges are knitted on all four sides, and the middle is what ever fell into my mind. I used all combinations of knit and purl stitches, cable patterns, lace patterns, German male stockning patterns and so on.
I also made a pillow though it is not finished yet.
