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 (387) »
Getting ready to go to the dance studio? Get dolly ready in her great outfit of a ruffled tutu, sweatband/headband, leg warmers, and a towel to wipe her brow after a hard workout! Every little girl that dreams of dancing will want this for their doll! Make these in baby yarn, US # 5 needles. Pretty in pink, but looks so cute in blue, lavender and yellow too! The pattern is fairly easy to follow too. Why not start this for a Holiday gift giving idea along with our other 18 inch doll patterns. What a nice surprise gift this would be!
