Stash Buster Scrap Afghan

Look how pretty! i'm using up all my scraps and putting them to use! :) i havent finished all the strips yet... but soon i'll have a blanket to fit on my full size bed. i decided to do long strips of double crochet rows, edged in one round of single crochet, because they work up quickly and i can do one strip a day. i'm working on the 6th strip still, but after that i think it will be about the right size and i can do a round of single crochet around each that is the same color and whips stich them together...
then!! we'll see. i'm thinking about doing a bunch of rounds around the whole thing, then edging in single crochet, maybe with picots :P
oh yeah if anyone wants the pattern it's loosely umm
For each strip:
with an aluminum size J hook (US)
Chain 27
Dc in 4th st from hook and in each across
Ch 3, turn, dc in each dc across (you will have 25 stitched per row)
Continue until there are a total of 124 rows of dc, then without turning, ch1
and turn strip lengthwise. sc evenly across the length of strip and all around it, putting 3 sc in each corner.
Fasten off and weave in ends.

That is an excellent way to use up all the scraps of yarn left over from other projects. Good Crocheting ECONOMICAL
