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 easy knit, but something different than you may have done before. Pattern stitch is done in purl stitches. I know, you do not like to purl! Well, give this one a try. You wont believe how purl stitches can transform something into a pattern so pretty! It is fairly easy, and quick to knit too. Uses worsted weight cotton yarn, knitting needles, US # 8. Finished size is about 9 by 9, a size most people prefer.
Gauge: about 4 sts = I inch
