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) »
This is our old favorite to wear! We designed this for extra room to tuck in a ponytail, or extra long hair, up inside the hat. Even with short hair, we love the extra poof it has when worn. It is similar to the popular slouchy hats everyone so loves. This is so very easy to knit! Uses worsted weight yarn, and only 1 pair each of knitting needles, US # 5, and # 101/2. Easy back seam to sew! Children love this style too, so make a lot of these. Add stripes and use up your leftover yarns!
