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 (385) »
A customer favorite! When people can't find the pattern on our website, they frantically email us and ask, "Where is it"! They love it's easy in knitting. And the biggest boost is, you can use up all sorts of scrap yarn colors! Fits most head very well. Very easy graphs to follow, easy repeat on few stitches. So you won't have much to remember! We used worsted weight yarn in 5 colors. Knitting needles, 16" circular US # 8. Also will need a set of double points for decreasing at the top. Don't worry! There are only a few rows of decreasing on the double points, then you are done. We love the "loop" top finish!
