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) »
This is a neat stitch pattern, that " scrubs" dishes while you wash them! So fun and easy to do. Uses only about 1 1/2 ounces worsted weight cotton yarn and knitting needles US # 10. This works up fast! Easy to remember 8 row repeat. A fun "not so boring " pattern. You can whip up lots of these in one week. Don't forget to make one for your neighbor too! A good idea is to make a basket full of these and place by your front door. When you have a club meeting, let everyone take a dishcloth color of their choice home with them. They will love you for it! A fun, yet functional pattern! The easy scalloped edge is done with a size H crochet hook, and most people can master doing this.
