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 (440) »
A ?super simple? pattern! Such fun to knit, you will want to make more than one! For sizes 1 to 8 yrs. This is an easy, yet stylish pattern. Try to pair it over a long skirt for a more elegant look. We found we could knit up several in a week in nothing flat! Use up your scrap yarns for stripes, or knit all in one color! Uses sport weight yarns (preferably cotton) knitting needles US # 8 ( we found Red Heart Luster Sheen works well in this pattern).
