Last week’s post got me to thinking about more stash-busting projects. Patterns that would make great holiday knitting with the added bonus of using up small amounts of yarn. I took a trip through ravelry and came back with these great patterns. Some of them old favourites, some of them new (at least to me!):
CanCans by Erica Lomax
Purl Beret by The Purl Bee
Ripley by Ysolda Teague
Herringbone Cowl by Lauren Osborne
Shawls and Other Shoulder Warmers
DROPS 108-53 by DROPS design
shadowbox by Alison Brookbanks
Pile-able Pups by Anna Hrachovec
Good for stash-busting anytime of year, but especially now in colder climates like mine…
afghans for Afghans sends handknit and crocheted blankets, sweaters, vests, hats, mittens and socks to the people of Afghanistan.
Blankets for Canada creates blankets for Canadians in need.
Mother Bear Project sends handknit or crocheted bears to children affected by HIV/AIDS.
