thanks for posting this...I love these little patterns! Here's one that I think is worth adding:

I have an angel doll on my patterns page (http://www.beartoes.com/patterns/)

I also have a snake pattern (http://www.beartoes.com/index.php?title=it_s_a_snake_or_at_least_a_snake_p attern&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1) on my blog, but I haven't fully proofed it yet, so it's only on my blog, not on the patterns page yet.

I think these little gnomes (http://www.saartjeknits.nl/patterns/Korknisse.html) are adorable, and only take tiny bits of yarn.

Garn studios has several free patterns in their accessories collection that take a 50 gram skein of yarn or less.

Here are three:

lace shawl/capelett (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=88&d_id=10&lang=en)

alpaca wrist warmers (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=98&d_id=33&lang=en)

picot edge wrist warmers (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=86&d_id=8&lang=us)

I like to use left over washable yarn to make baby socks. Always good to have on hand when someone announces a new baby.

There are several charities that have calls out at the moment for squares for afghans. It's a great way to try a new stitch pattern.

The patterns aren't free, but Jean Greenhowe has many great animal and doll patterns that use small amounts of yarn. The T-rex pattern only used a small amount of yarn, but kids love it!

Great topic!

I love the idea of having links to small projects on one page. :happydance:

Here's a pattern for a Soap Sweater (http://pickinandthrowin.blogspot.com/2006/12/great-last-minute-gift.html) . The pattern doesn't specify how much yarn is needed, but I doubt it would take more than one skein. :?? I think it's a neat idea, too; having it felt as it used.

I love the kick as-cot pattern and the soap sweater pattern! I was just telling dh the other day that I needed to knit a soap sweater of sorts for dd--it helps little wet hands hold onto the slippery soap! LOL!

Here's another few patterns that I thought were worth mentioning...

Flora (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTflora.html)
Flowers in Bloom (http://www.fortheloveofyarn.com/Issues/Spring06/patterns/spring06_stashbust_knit.shtml)

Cristy--I had to tell you that I LOVED the link you posted for the little knit flowers. It was really easy! I just finished a hat, and I made one and sewed it on for an embellishment.

Thanks for the idea!! :cheering:

Cristy
02-12-2007, 01:29 AM
awesome, I'm glad to hear it--I want to try to make some to embellish a hat for my dd.

Here's one more I just thought of:
Scrunchies (http://frugalhaus.com/homepage/ponytail.htm) - you can also link to this pattern from the free patterns page here on KH!

I posted a thread with a link to the pattern for these adorable baby booties (http://knittingonthenet.com/patterns/babybootsribbed2.htm) in Pattern Central, then realized I should have put it here. :doh:

Baby booties make great little stashbusters, and they're a good item to have on hand, 'cause you never know when you're going to hear someone's going to need them. :teehee:

I was wondering what on earth I could do with several left-over balls of pale pink, lemon, white, mint green and pale blue (there are ALOT of babies and toddlers in my life just now) - anyway, I was mooching about and came across this:

/knittersreview.com/article_how_to.asp?article=/review/profile/010726_a.asp

Only problem I have now is convincing the babies' Mums that their offspring won't end up looking like an explosion in a wool factory.

I originally posted this on General Knitting but Hilde asked me to post it here.

I made this muff for a friend of mine's granddaughter. She bought the fuzzy yarn, and I added the base yarn from my stash. She wanted to pay me, and I said...hmmm, you bought the yarn I could use, and I got RID of some of MY yarn...so I said...we're even!!!

I'll give the pattern for the pink one and you can make modifications?

Supplies:
Fun Fur
Worsted Weight Yarn
4 size 6 DPN needles (or what ever you feel comfortable knitting with, the six's were tight, but doable)

using knit CO , cast on 36 stitches 2 yarns together (or any amount divisble by 6).

Knit until "muff length" or you get tired of the fun fur.

Break Fun Fur, leave worsted weight yarn

Row 1: p
Row 2: *k3,p3*
Row 3:*k1,p1*

Repeat Rows 2 & 3 until when lining is folded over it is about 1 inch less than the muff length.

This part is tricky. You want to now insert the lining into the muff, and you might have to actually take off the needles to do this, but take it slow and be patient. BUT, I just realized that if you turned the muff inside out BEFORE you started the lining, it would be MUCH easier to do....just play with it. The end result is the lining inside the muff, and live stitches are next to the CO stitches.

Now, one by one, pick up one of the CO stitches, and K the first stitch on the needle together with the CO stitch. I use the K2tog bind off method for nearly all my bind offs as it is VERY stretchy and loose.

In a rhythm it goes like this:
1. Pick up 1 cast on stitch and put on left needle
2. Knit CO stitch together with first stitch on left needle
3. Repeat 1 & 2
4. 2 stitches on right needle
5. K 2 sts on right needle tog by placing left needle in front of both stitches and knit.
6. Repeat 1-5 until all the way around.
7. Break yarn, pull through loop, and tuck the tails into the muff and you are done.

Not terribly sure how "kosher" this is, but it worked for me and it was SECURE.

OK OK. I thought of a StashBuster Idea! I got the pattern from www.patternworks.com To view it, you need to type in the word "KNITCUSHION" in the top right search bar, then click GO.

Below is the website "write-up" about it (in blue):
KNITCUSHION PATTERN

Place needles, hooks, holders and pencils in this fun KnitCushion made from simple garter-stitch bands. Pattern has knitting directions for five variations (4"-diameter x 2" high shown). Requires worsted-weight yarn and size #6 needles.


Item #: 800395
Price: $7.00
Status: In Stock



Below is a knitcushion that I made in one night, and I SIMPLY LOVE IT! :heart:

The "model" KNITCUSHION is shown is bright colors, but I wanted woodsy colors, and I had the scrap yarn for it! Yes, I save scraps, too!

I can't give out the pattern directions here due to copyright stuff...but, the pattern has 5 versions and a wonderful story to go along with its "history". It was worth the $7. The KNITCUSHION would make good gifts and stocking stuffers and door prizes at our knitting clubs, etc.

Maybe you could contact the designer. Otherrwise you could maybe study the gauge and figure out how many inches the hat is around compared to what a preemie hat would be, and then try to figure out how many stitches that would take.

Using 2 strands at once would be a good way to use up that stuff.......of you can just send it to me. :happydance:

LOL!

I just posted something on another post I saw on Edith Eig's show a while back, it's on using 2 to make a nice blended look: Adding and Blending (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=451437#451437)

double knitting is basically reversible knitting. amy has a tutorial for it here: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/free_patterns/heart-dk-hot-pad.php

so no, that pattern you posted is not double knitted, but its ok its still a good stash-busting project! :cheering: :)

Christy,

I love those oddball potholders! I already know what I want to make. I'll use U.C Bearcats material from JoAnn's that I saw a few days ago! I have been wonder how I would use it.

THANK YOU!

Susan

I have caught up! YAY! I am very new to knitting and have seen all of the Knit Alongs and the Treat Exchanges and goals that everyone has...should we do one here? Or if there is one...where is it:-)

Excuse my ignorance....but what is a "treat exchange"?
:whoosh:

LauraD

From what I have seen it's like a "secret santa" of sorts...you have a "partner" and you knit them something and send it and they knit you something and send it. There is usually a theme like felted bags, or socks or scarves and hats...it is pretty neat but I have always been too late to join:-)
