Every year after Christmas I look at my huge yarn stash and think, now is the time I must look for some crochet stashbuster patterns. After all, boxing day is fast approaching and I will need to buy some NEW yarn to play with (yes?)…
This free pattern Friday roundup includes some GREAT crochet stashbuster patterns. Whether you are searching for patterns to use up yarn (multiple strands at a time!) or to use up left-over bits you have around – I have included options for you.
I think I might make up another one of my large stashbuster baskets, or maybe a rug this year (be sure to check out Dedri’s post to get the inside scoop on how to make rugs with stashed yarn in sc, hdc and dc stitches).
I can’t wait to see which patterns you like the best! Do you have a favorite?
If you have suggestions for other FREE stashbuster patterns please leave me links in the comments below 🙂
