Upcycled Vintage Blankets

I love vintage blankets. I absolutely adore these crocheted afghans, their granny square construction, the dated colors of yarns. Often there’s signs of felting or fuzziness.

Sometimes the blankets are a little too loved, or conversely, unloved, and are damaged by time. I carefully salvage these blankets and make scarves!

This time I found a blanket in a zig-zag pattern, which created a lot of zig zag scarves. A great look for colder times!
