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 (383) »
Children just love this! As well as a fun, novelty bag for teens and adults! Bag is 12 inches tall without handles. It knits up so fast, you can make these in all kinds of colors! We love the short, pudgy legs, that add even more character to the pattern! Easy to knit ears are sewn on, as well as snout. Then just embroider nostrils and eyes, and you are done! This goes quickly, so make a pig tote for all the children and grandchildren! They will love it! Uses worsted weight yarns, knitting needles, US # 10.
