Whether you save all of your unused yarn in a box or you have some skeins that you purchased and never used, we all need to figure out what to do with our scrap yarn. Now that we’re on Week 3 of the Stash Busting Challenge, you have 31 more scrap yarn crochet projects to choose from! Which project will you make?
Each week we gather more and more designers to bring you more scrap yarn crochet projects and today’s list has become pretty long. During this pandemic, our goal is to bring people together and that’s why we put together this challenge.
I encourage and challenge you to participate in the Stash Busting Challenge not only to use up your scrap yarn, but also to get your mind off of the things we can’t control and replace it with a bit of happiness and community.
We may be alone, but we’re alone together.
By the way, this is how the Stash Busting Challenge works in a nutshell. 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
Craft The Day Away
If you’re like me and you enjoy crafting in all kinds of different ways (or maybe you just want to learn more about crochet!), I highly recommend checking out Bluprint (formerly known as Craftsy).
They have an amazing selection of creative education classes ranging from crochet to gardening to cooking to painting… Honestly I could go on and on. Head over to their site, click “Crafts” and you’ll see a drop down of all the craft categories they offer.
I’ve had their subscription for years and now that I’ve taken most of their crochet classes, I’m off to learn how to start a vegetable garden! What will you try?
Remember that each of the patterns below will also be available as a free PDF download but only during the week they are released.
For each pattern you want to download, click the button to go to the designer’s website. Within that designer’s pattern, you’ll locate and click on the “DOWNLOAD THIS FREE PDF PATTERN” and use the code: SBCHALLENGE to get it free!
We might be stuck at home at the moment, but that shouldn't stop us from sitting out by the pool. Whether is a big pool or baby pool, we can still get our tan on with a nice drink on some of these beautiful coasters.
Last week a shared a stash busting pattern for some simple baby booties and this week we have a similar pattern but for knit! I don't knit personally, but if you knit and crochet then this might be a nice quick break. They're so cute!
Here's another set of patterns to practice your tunisian crochet stitches. If you haven't already tried it, tunisian crochet is addicting and you're going to love it especially if you're ready to try something new.
I am completely in love with this headband and maybe even a little jealous because I tried to design something like this and totally failed. Brittany's headband is spot on and I'm absolutely making this for myself!
I love the fringey boho style of this purse and I really want to make one in black. It uses a bulkier yarn making it quick to work up and ready to take to your next night out with friends (once this quarantines over of course) 😅
There are two things I need this summer, sunglasses and a pouch for said sunglasses. And this sunglasses pouch is so cute I'm going to have to make it first to encourage myself to buy a pair of sunglasses 😆
I've never seen scrunchies using multiple colors before and I really like it. It would be a great gift if you wanted to make team colors for friends and family. Plus, scrunchies sell really well at crafts fairs.
One of my favorite techniques, other than holding multiple strands of yarn, is working into the back loop. I love that you can do something so simple and it creates a completely different look and texture.
Basket patterns are some of my favorite patterns because they are always so useful. You can never have too many baskets! They can be used to decorate any area of your home to make it look a little more tidy. And if you think you have too many, I bet your friends don't!
Here's another tunisian crochet pattern for you! Did I mention that I'm obsessed with tunisian? Sometimes we can lose our 'cro-jo' and run out of ideas on what to make or nothing's really speaking to us. That would be a great time to try out this technique!
Amigurumi is always super fun to make. My husband always asks me to make a new toy for him to take to his office as a desk ornament to show off to all his co-workers. And, of course, kids love them too!
Looking to practice the basic stitches? These washcloths are great for beginners and you can never make to many because they're useful in many different ways. Around the house, gifts for friends/family/coworkers, or as part of a gift basket!
Here's another pair of fingerless gloves for you! I love that these gloves are longer and they would look really pretty in a variegated yarn.
Thank you so much for participating in this weeks challenge!
