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) »
Now this is something everyone can use! Even a fast knit cover to put over a 2 liter bottle! We used up scraps of yarns to make this colorful as can be. This easy stitch pattern looks like a cable but isnt. It is much easier! There are also sizes for soda cans, and 20 ounce drink cups. Such fun to knit, and beginners who feel confident can knit these too for friends! Great idea for keeping your drinks cold and using up colors of yarns!
