Almost every knitter has a stash. The stash, for the uninitiated, is comprised of those bits of extra skeins that are too long to just throw away (heaven forbid), but too short to make into a hat, and skeins of hoarded yarn, accumulated over years spent in craft stores. The stash, in short, is a supply of extra yarn for the knitter, carefully consolidated and tended over the years. Most stashes are bursting with bits of leftover skeins of yarn. Amounts of yarn that you could possibly make one sock, or one mitten, but what would be the point in that? The answer to the overflowing stash is, of course, the stashbuster. Knitting stashbusters are specifically designed to use small amounts of yarn, with the underlying purpose of cleaning that extra yarn out of your closet. Stashbusters are also great patterns for beginners to try out, since they are quick projects. 8 Designs for Knitting: Free Patterns for Beginners and Easy Knitting Stashbusters is the go-to guide for all your pattern needs.
