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 (389) »
This top is so easy to knit! You will want to knit up a whole wardrobe of colors. The pocket is jeans style to add to front of sweater. You can add it, or leave it off. Either way, it is a very easy, very comfortable fit for children! Easy on the knitter too, as it works up fast! From sizes 6 months to 6-7 yrs. This will only use from 4 to 5 1/2 ounces of most kinds of worsted weight yarns! Use knitting needles US # 4 and # 7, for all sizes. The neck ribbing at top makes it easy to pullover heads, and yet gives stability to the shoulder area.
