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 (379) »
Knit up fun gingham covers for those unused ice cream pails! OR use a 5 quart pail. This is a nice pattern for country dcor or any dcor. Knit up the cover in rounds with easy graph, on US # 6 knitting needles, and worsted weight yarn. Directions tell you how to knit the handle cover too! This works up rather quickly on a 24 inch circular needle. Use the finished bucket for a yarn tote, knitting or crochet tote, magazine holder, mail holder, holder for small toys. You will think of many uses for this. It really transforms an ordinary plastic ice cream bucket into something special!
