Use up those scraps
It’s inevitable that we all end up collection lots of scraps of precious skeins, so here’s a little pattern to help you use those up and add a touch of homespun chic to your abode. The ‘Winter Hearts’ pattern by Victoria Magnus is a great way to try out stranded colour work if you haven’t done it before. The best bit? Minimal sewing up!
You really can use any yarn for this pattern, so it’s an excellent opportunity to use up those scraps and give them a new lease of life in a decoration you can look at every day! You could consider adding a bit of lavender to the stuffing to repel pesky moths from your wardrobe. They also make great little gifts.
What would you knit yours in?
