The Frugal Knitting Haus was founded in July of 1989. It began around the innovative patterns of our founder, designing quick and simple patterns using up leftover scraps of yarn. Since her start, hundreds of knitting patterns have been designed and are available through the eight different books that are published by the Frugal Knitting Haus. The patterns are all different, but the design concept through the years hasn't changed. The name "frugal" is right on target, given our patterns that use the leftover scraps of yarn, bits and pieces of a skein or less that would otherwise not find a purpose. Whether it is a holiday decoration, a baby blanket or adult afghan, sweaters, bazaar items, toys, hats, slippers, gifts, or just plain useful items for use around the house, you will find it all here. We've put a large number of patterns on our site, to get you started with the "frugal" knitting concept that will surely clean those odds and ends of yarn out of the bottom of your knitting basket.View all patterns by designer (410) »
If you remember the 1960's era, you will remember we all loved these cloth triangle scarf. There were even patterns to "sew" one out of cloth. We thought it would be very cute and useable in knitting as well! This is so easy, so fast to knit! You can make a whole wardrobe of colors as we did! Wear while at the beach, morning walks, or just gardening. It helps keep hair in place and out of your eyes. Everyone loves this! Directions give you either the button closure or ties to complete. One size fits all as it stretches to fit! Uses worsted weight yarns, knitting needles, US #10.5. Size # 7 needed for tie version. A hit with everyone!
