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 (389) »
A very cute set, with ?eyes?! Call it a cat, call it a mouse, whatever you wish! No mouth, just eyes and ears, so let your imagination go wild! Use different colors, for different effects. Use fur yarns, and knitting needles, US #9 and # 10. This is a ? very quick? gift idea! And they sell very well at bazaars and craft sales. Remember to buy the ?google eyes? that are available at most hobby and craft stores, and some fabric stores. You can knit the entire set in an afternoon! Purse is ?little girl? sized, 6? by 7 ?inches, scarf, is 3 1/2? wide and 45 ? inches long. With large needles, it works up fast. A small amount of yarn for ears and purse handle. Girls will giggle with delight when they see this set!
Gauge - on scarf, approx 5 sts = 1 inch. Gauge - on purse, approx 7 sts = 2 inches
