Using up yarn

The other week I finished a couple projects using up stash yarn.

The rug is from a pattern in Crochet World October 2017.  It is called Fall Colors Rug.  The pattern used 3 strands of worsted weight yarn. I used one strand of worsted weight yarn and one strand (the white) of Sensations Rainbow Classic yarn that is a 5 weight. That yarn is a bushed yarn that I usually don’t like working with but when I paired it with a worsted weight yarn, it was ‘smooth’ to use. Very fast to make.  I can always use another rug around the house!

The blue and gray dress is for a child. It is called Crochet Child’s Tube Dress and it was free from Red Heart. I have no idea when I printed it but I can’t seem to find the pattern online.  The pattern doesn’t say the size of girl it fits either. Probably a 2 or 3 year old.  It was quick and fun.
