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) »
This is an ornament, or a jar topper! Knit up the unique design in 5 points, sew together, then add ribbon trims, or hang on Christmas tree as is. These work up really fast, so you can make a lot of them for jar toppers. They would be very cute over the top on a pint size canning jar, filled with homemade candies, then add star topper, ribbon bow, and you have a great gift! Finished star is 5 by 5 for ornament, 7 by 7 for jar topper. Uses crochet thread and US # 5 needles for ornament, and for jar topper, use sport weight yarn, US # 10.5 needles.
