colourful change to the furniture or bed


  • 2 shopping bags scraps of wool left over from other projects or bought at the OP Shop
  • 8 x 100gms Kmart or wool of your choice as main colour, 8 ply
  • 8 x 100gms Kmart or wool of your choice in different colours, 8 ply
  • 1 x 4.00 Crochet hook


  1. Get a 52 litre plastic storage tub to put all the wool in. Then, buy the wool and fill the tub.
  2. decide on what colours you plan to make squares in. Choose bright combinations and add darker squares to make it all blend together. You can make this type of throw with 2 or 3 colours too, or with thinner ply wool. If you want a texture sensation, buy a few balls of fluffly wool at the Reject shop in a couple of colours. This will give a 3D effect and a feel sensation too.
  3. Decide on the size of your squares. I chose 15 cm ones. To keep the squares the same size, make the first one and keep it close for ensuring they all remain the same. Count your chains when starting, and always have the same number of trebles per line.

  • Off to raid my Mums wool scraps to start a blanket….. It’s not too daunting if I tell myself just to make 1 or 2 squares of a night while I watch tv.


  • This is very creative. My furniture is all fairly new but this would take me a very long time so maybe I should start.


  • What an amazing quilt you have made

    • Would be great to throw over an old lounge chair to give it character


  • This is amazing. I wished i knew how to knit


  • I love these little square blankets. They have so much character.


  • We used to crochet and knit these type blankets at church and hand them out to homeless people and people in need. Great way to get rid of your left over wool indeed.

    • lovely to help those less fortunate and great way to use up wool


  • This is a great way to make a large blanket.


  • This is such an awesome idea! I love this idea for a tv blanket..the blanket that everyone snuggles under when we watch tv!


  • Alot of work but it look’s so great with many uses!


  • The rug you made looks so warm and inviting. Lovely job that anyone would love.


  • Lovely idea to use up bits and pieces of wool.


  • Remember doing this when younger except as my squares were never even I ended up making one huge square, Those blankets lasted for years and many moves. Think I should try it again now I am older.


  • My mum had us make something similar to this when we were young, except that it was knitted. We all used her scraps of wool and knitted 20x20cm squares and she sewed them together to make a blanket. To this day it is our favourite blanket to snuggle under when we go to mum’s. Such great memories!


  • Great idea to use lots of left overs


  • Looks so warm and inviting, just like it was made for snuggling under while reading on watching TV on the couch.
