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 (383) »
We love the simplicity of the textured stitches in this. And we can use up our scraps of yarns for this afghan to make many colorful stripes! You can get creative with various colors to match your home. This makes a nice gift too, as you probably wont have to spend any money, just use up scrap yarn! Finished size is about 50 wide, and 58" long. Uses worsted weight yarns, and a 36" circular needle # 15. Pattern stitch is an easy 4 row repeat!
