A while ago I crocheted a chevron rug for my daughter. I used wool that I had frogged from a jumper and then bought the contrasting wool.
I was delighted when my son said he would be happy if I made him a lap rug using up scraps of wool. He normally doesn’t ask for me to knit anything for him so I jumped at this idea. I decided I would crochet a chevron rug as it is easy to do, no thinking required while I watch the cricket.
As soon as I arrived home I checked out the pile of left-over wool and pulled out a few colours that I thought would go together ok.
I was sorting through my 8ply box but when I finished the rug I found that I had inadvertently put in some wool that was not 8ply. I don’t think it makes too much of a difference and the finished rug looks ok.
The pale grey is the non 8ply. You can see that the chevron is narrower.

That’s a very manly looking blanket, perfect for your son. I didn’t spot the grey till you said.
Thank you. I am hoping that my son likes it.
You did a fine job with color selection. I just made a blanket for my niece out of scraps and she loved it!
Thje blanket is ideal for snuggling in front of the tv or with a good book.
