how about a granny stripe I did the one from attic24 and its not very yarn taking up. another option is start as a granny square and keep going until you make the blanket.

Swatch it and see :-)

Does that use less yarn overall? I was initially doing to do granny squares but I think they'll be v yarn intensive.

I would make squares of trebles and singles etc and then sew them together at the end.

See that's what I was thinking, trebles would make bigger holes and so make it bigger - but a treble uses so much more wool than a single!

Double crochet gives you most acreage in my experience - that's us double, English treble

Single crochet would make it more dense and smaller, use some sort of lacy net pattern.

Any ideas? I have 17 50g balls of a chunky yarn and I want the finished blanket to be as large as possible for the amount of yarn I've got. Just stick with single crochet?
