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 (452) »
What a nice gift, with a lovely scented bar of soap! Knit this openwork holder in shape of a fish. Easy to knit! The openwork helps the scent pour through. Use the soap holder as a scrubber in the bathtub, and it will dry quickly because of the openwork design. Make lots of these in cotton crochet thread, and knitting needles, US # 8. Finished size is about 51/2 inches long, with soap in it. It may depend on size of soap you use, for finished size. Make one for each of your knitting guild members!
