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 (453) »
This pattern was designed with a box full of yarn! We found the background color, then we added pretty, bright colors of yarn from a box full of scrap yarns, with easy graphs to complete the sweater. Easy shaping too. This was such fun to knit, that we have made several! Fits from 34 to 40 1/2 inches. Uses sport weight cotton yarn. On one, we used "Lustersheen" ( by Coats and Clark ) yarn and it worked great! Knitting needles , US sizes #4, and # 6.
