I am trying to de-stash my stash and I am looking for a knitted baby blanket pattern that I could make that uses small amounts of scrap yarn. Please help. Thanks

Hi!
A log cabin blanket would be a great de-stash. Here is a link how to Log cabin (http://www.januaryone.com/archives/2006/06/how_to_build_a_log_cabin.php)
Mitered squares are also a great way to use up yarn. Here is a pattern for a blanket (http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/afghans/st_st.htm)

You might also want to look at the year of the stash KAL (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=70223)They have great stash busting ideas!
Good luck!!!

I highly recommend the Log Cabin blanket. It's fun and if you run out of yarn mid section just add a new one. :thumbsup: Here's the Mason Dixon Knitting website and they have info on the blanket in more detail on the February 19th post.
