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 (410) »
This is so easy to knit, with only a 2 row repeat! People will think this is complicated , but it is not. A good textured pattern to keep your interest in knitting, and the textured stitches help scrub the dish too! Make these in worsted weight cotton yarns, and knitting needles US #8. Ours uses only about 2 ounces of yarn for each cloth, so you can use up scrap yarns here! Make one for each person at work for a Holiday treat! You will love this one, and make it many times over! By using the same pattern stitch, and casting on a different amount of stitches, you can create 2 different styles of dishcloths!
