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
I also have a snake pattern 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 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:
alpaca wrist warmers
picot edge wrist warmers
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!
Cristy~~ I saw that cup holder on Knitty befoer~~ How cool is that??
I love the idea of having links to small projects on one page. :happydance:
Here's a pattern for a Soap Sweater . 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.
Renna, I LOVE that soap sweater pattern! Thanks for sharing it!
Hi Madam! This was a good idea...to create a thread dedicated to one skein Stash Busting patterns! Will check back often!
Stash on, Sister!!!
