About: Yarn Scraps Tips & Ideas (Includes links to Unique Scrappy Projects!)
Great tips, especially like the yarn needed for crochet rows. Thanks.
For Hand Knitting I know its approx. 4 x the length of the finished row/round.
(an easy alternative to counting stitches)
OMG I never realised there’s such an amazing tool as the Random Stripe Generator you showed. That’s just the best thing I’m so pleased I watched your great video all way through to find this gift 🌷 Loved your items you made as well. Inspired you bet 👍🏻
What if it is different thickness yarns
This is a Great Video🤗 glad I found you today because I’m having to find a place for all my scraps 😂
I had once an awesome jumper my friends mother made me knitting I presume from scars she knitted a few rows then when the colour changed she slipped one stitch every few stitches and the next row purled it off then the next colour change she did that in the mid point of the previous slipped spaces it looks amazing as a jumper and great use of scraps.
I don't make long legs on socks and usually find that I have enough self-striping yarn left to make a pair of fingerless mitts, with contrasting cuff and/or border if needed or wanted
Last year I made a bunch of hats with scraps so I could practice different techniques like checkerboards, cables, etc. Then I sent them all to a men's homeless shelter right before Christmas. My mom use to knit mittens all year long and then donate them to thrift stores.
It seem like most of her work is done by machine not manually that people whom use knitting needles how can help them
I just love your voice
Oh Margaret! Just discovered your video on the Yarn Scraps. I love the way you think, your tips, hats and sharing and I look forward to working some of your patterns. You’re genius! God bless!
I have a hard time buying yarn. I'm just not good a picking or matching colors. My local store doesn't have much of a yarn selection. Some online store force you to buy a minimum of each color you pick and the weight of yarn isn't all the same so you might buy yarn that's too thin. It's a pain
I make mittens for local pre k schools....older kids won’t wear them here. Easy and quick to make and scraps make each pair unique....if a gift....make Three so there’s an extra year of wear when one is lost in a snowbank.
For the overly grey beanie with time 2:37
, can you please help me, I intend on making a second beanie, but I don't know how many stiches to make a size 7 on a medium tightness measurement around my head as my foundation chain, I intend on using puff stiche's through the beanie, but last time I did single crochets at the top of the 7 chain foundating length single crochet band I added too many rows around the top once I joined the two sides, could you make a tutorial or help me find one that I can just follow step by step counting the total number of rows at the end? Much thanks, will provide email if necessary
My scraps go to squares to Blankets for Canada. They collect 8 inch squares to put together as blankets for people in need, shelters, family services, inner city neighborhoods. If you're in Canada, they can always use more squares.
I like somuch your smart work of knitting, it is so beautiful
Beautiful products and wonderful tips and ideas! Thank you for sharing. And I LOVE the multi-coloured pom-poms on solid colour hats!
