If you’re anything like me (don’t try to deny it – we both know you are!) then you’ve probably got little bits of yarn hiding all over your house. You’ve got ends that you just couldn’t throw away stuffed into odd little purses, and you have glass jars filled with 10 yard yarn balls so you’ll be able to see your selection. Yet you very rarely actually come back to use these bits and pieces.
I’ve been working on a project lately that requires stuffing, and I’ve been using these little bits of extra yarn (I even brought a bunch with me when I moved….if you can believe that!). I have such mixed feelings about it! On one hand, it’s so awesome to be using up some of the scraps. On the other-hand, though, I hate cutting bits of yarn (which I might someday use….really….I might) into pieces!
So my mission today was to gather a few of my favorite scrap yarn designs…..I need something I can create using these home-less oddballs. Hope you enjoy these designs! A couple of them are simply genius in their beauty and design, and a couple of them are simply too cute and funny not to share.
This design is just pure beauty to me….the incredible construction in this free crochet flower pattern pops that much more when put together like this. Use it as pot-holder, something to sit beneath a vase, or just a pretty decoration…..this cute pattern is going to add a real elegance to your home!
This is one of those “Why Not?” moments in life…..why wouldn’t you want to knit tiny bunnies? Really. Can you think of one good reason?
This little lovey is so adorable…..and I know my son would have adored it when he was smaller. What the perfect gift to give to a little one you love <3
This circular knit blanket is another one of those patterns that simply can’t be ignored. The design is incredible, and I could see some really amazing colorful blankets using bits of scrap yarn.
One more too cute not to share. I noticed immediately that these little owls have tiny hangers on top. Wouldn’t it be so fun to make one Christmas owl for each person in your family?
