WIP: A Stashbusting Lap-ghan

I have started the prototype for another lap-ghan pattern.  This one is made with leftover balls of yarn from various projects and our local thrift store.  The stitches are so big, that the pattern repeat is huge, and it's hard to get the width of the 'ghan right... either too wide or not wide enough.  What you see above is wider than I'd like, almost 4 feet, but it might be acceptable when it's finished.

UPDATE:  The free pattern is up now: Scrappy Lap-ghan.

You can find more WIPs (works-in-progress) online here.


  1. I think it's always better to have a lapghan a little bit biggest than a little bit smaller--it's nice to be able to tuck it around your legs:)

    1. I'm glad you think so. I took the advice and made it large--works great.
