Need a fun Stash-Busting pattern! :)

Question

Hi all! I'm looking to see what you all think a fun stash-busting afghan pattern might be? I'm looking to make an afghan that's about 48"x48" to donate (where to, I do not know yet) and I want to do something different than the average 3-round granny squares motif :blush Share your ideas here please!! Lots of colors need to be used :cheer

A Rainbow Granny I enjoyed making and giving. Colorful and quick to work up too.

What about using several strands of yarn and a big hook, I call them ugly blankets but others call them 3 subs and stuff.

Ugly Blankets! :lol That's a great idea. Do you think a size 9mm hook would be big enough? that's the biggest I have. Or is it one of those like jumbo gigantic hooks?

I love to use the larksfoot stitch for afghans. I've made so many of them, using 2,3,4 colors and sometimes I used a different color for every stripe. I always get compliments on them. Another name for this afghan is called the tier stitch afghan. You can make the afghan any size you want. I think it's a multiple of 4 plus 3. You just make a chain as long as you want the width of the afghan to be and follow the stitch pattern. If there are extra chains, you can always rip them out. Here's a link to one pattern:

Project Linus has a web site with free pattern. I've crocheted blankets for them. They like solid designs (no holes) in acrylic yarns. I use the box stitch a lot.

When I make my ugly blankets I use my q hook. But you can use any size you are comfortable with.
