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 (390) »
This is so cute, even teens and moms will want one! Finished size is about 7" by 6" inches. A cute Easter purse! This works up easy with textured yarn in worsted weight. Also uses knitting needles US #8. This is quite easy, and most folks can knit one in an afternoon! The children love putting small toys, crayons and small tablets in this to carry to Grandma's house. You can buy the " googly" eyes to sew on or embroider on eyes as we did. Either way, it is so fun to knit and everyone will love it! Make one as a fun gift for your knitting friend for her to store her grocery coupons in!
