Stashing Busting Challenge: Week 1 – 16 Quick and Easy Stash Busting Crochet Patterns

Anyone else have an entire stash of yarn that you have no idea what to do with? You keep thinking that maybe you’ll use it for something, but still can’t come up with any ideas? Well, I have just the thing for you! I’m excited to announce a fun new challenge that my designer friends and I have put together to keep you busy. It’s called the Stash Busting Challenge!

 

What is the Stash Busting Challenge?

This challenge is all about use up that yarn in your stash you’ve been meaning to use, with quick and easy crochet patterns that you can finish super quickly. For the month of April, a group of us crochet designers will be having one of our crochet patterns be available as a FREE PDF download on Ravelry for an entire week. Each pattern is super simple to make, and is perfect for using up your leftover yarn. There’s everything from accessories to home decor!

 

How do you get the patterns?

Doesn’t that sound great? So you might be wondering, how do you get them? I’ve put together a roundup here, with instructions on how to get each pattern below the photo of the design. The instructions include the links to all of the FREE patterns on each designer’s blog, where they have a button that takes you to their Ravelry pattern link. Just use the code SBCHALLENGE before checkout, and you’ll be able to get it for FREE! We have it structured this way, so that it’s like a fun scavenger hunt and it really helps us designers out by you visiting our blogs!
