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 very cute. A good gift for your Southwestern friends! Such an easy pattern, you wont even believe it! It is made in one piece on US # 7 or # 10 needles. The larger needles will make a doily size, smaller needles makes a dishcloth! Why not make both for a great gift! Use washable worsted weight yarns, such as cotton yarn. Finished size of dishcloth is about 9 diameter, doily is about 12 inches in diameter ( that includes pointed ends). This is made in the round on 2 needles!
