Keep your coffee toasty warm with this fabulous cafetiere cosy from Buzybee. If you haven’t tried working different colours from a chart, then this is a great starter project. This is worked with DK weight yarn – and you probably want to include some acrylic into the blend to keep it washable.
Vintage fans, this one is for you! Inspired by a knitting book dating back to WW2, Anna pays tribute to the thriftiness of the housewives who had no choice but to “make do and mend” throughout the war. This beauty is knitted in Rowan Felted Tweed DK, but you can use your favourite DK yarn – and, dig deep into your stash if you really want to make do and mend!
“Piilo” means hiding place in Finnish – and this is exactly what this little pot is designed to do! The clever curved sides will keep the contents tidily secret and tucked away! Made in Hoooked Ribbon Solids XL knitted double, there are over 15 shades to choose from so you’re bound to find a colour to match your home.
The ideal super fast blanket knit! Stash Burner uses two or three strands of super chunky yarn knitted together or five strands of chunky yarn, to make a hugely chunky blanket! You’ll need big needles for this, 25mm whoppers! This is fabulous way to use up your chunky or super chunky stash – but if you want to start afresh, take a look at our chunky and super chunky ranges!
This fabulous pattern for a Stag’s Head cushion is perfect for a beginner as an introduction to intarsia! The recommended yarn is Stylecraft Special DK, and there are 74 shades to choose from so you can match a cushion to any room in the house! Ruby and the Foxes also suggests that you could put the cover over a box canvas and hang it on the wall! Genius!
Fabulous designer Kraftling’s Modern Lines Throw has coloured line embellishments – you can add these coloured brights with a crochet hook or a needle, after you’ve joined all your blanket sections together. It’s a simple repeat, so it’s perfect for a beginner and for knitting in front of the television!
The easiest egg cosy ever! Make a set of these for your kitchen in any scrap DK, 4ply or Sport weight yarn you have in your stash! They will keep those eggs nice and warm ready for your breakfast!
