Six Free Patterns For Leftover Yarn

We’re all bad for it – boxes of leftover yarn are strewn around our houses just waiting for some attention.

Sometimes, you just want quick and easy projects you can finish in one evening.

I have some good news: Leftover yarn is perfect for quick craft projects!

So gather your cut offs and take a look at some of these.

Knit some original jewellery


Knitted Jewellery is really big for 2017. Get ahead of the game and use some of that leftover yarn to make something unique and stunning.

Add beads or charms to create a statement piece, or keep it simple with crochet.

Whatever your style, you can easily add that wow factor to any outfit!

Try this Bracelet pattern or Button Necklace Pattern if you have some buttons to play with!

With winter creeping in in the Southern Hemisphere, there are going to be more evenings spent in front of a fire with a good book.

Knit and crochet some adorable bookmarks to keep your place – these also make perfect gifts.

So gather your leftover yarn and use your imagination. If you’re stuck, try this Simple flower bookmark pattern or, if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, try these Little birds bookmarks.
