7 Stash Busting New Year Knits

Get rid of all your yarn scraps in one go!

At the beginning of a New Year we all set resolutions that we’re convinced we’ll keep, but come February we’re back to our old ways. However, we’ve got a resolution that we think you may quite like, which involves cleaning out your yarn stash by making gorgeous knits! We’ve compiled a collection of wonderful patterns that we can guarantee you won’t need to go out and buy any yarn for, you just need to raid your ginormous stash.


1. Little Lamb

This adorable knitted lamb has to be one of the cutest makes we’ve laid our eyes on. Perfect for a newborn, and you can change the colours depending on what you’ve got left in your stash.


2. Gnome Friends

There’s nothing lovelier than a colourful toy to liven up the dreary winter days. Jerry the Gnome is a brilliant stash busting project to work on, as he really doesn’t mind which colours are used, he just wants to be bright!

3. Hopping Bunny
Easter might seem like a lifetime away at the moment, but there’s no harm in starting your projects early! This happy chap is super quick and easy to knit.

4. Knitted Cosies
Keep your gadgets warm with these fantastic stash busting cosies. Plus they’re great for keeping your expensive items out of sight.

5. Keepsake Frames
Treasure your favourite memories in a handmade knitted frame. Use up the colours in your stash to suit any room or personality!

6. Cube Jewellery
A unique way to use up your odds and ends is by making a stunning necklace. Best of all, it doesn’t matter if you change the yarn weight, colours, length, or the number of beads on this project. Have fun, and experiment!

7. Striped Cardi
Use up your oddments of DK yarn and make a vibrant cardigan to keep you warm during the chilly months.
