Free Scrap Yarn Crochet Projects

These free scrap yarn crochet projects will help you use up your leftover yarn and clear some space in your craft storage. All of these stash busters can be made using under one skein of yarn per colour. You can use these free patterns to make scrap yarn blankets, appliques, toys, fashion accessories and homeware.

What can I crochet with scrap yarn?

There’s lots of options and ideas for crocheting out of scrap yarn including:

  • Coasters
  • Scrubbies & cloths
  • Eye masks
  • Anything colourful
  • C2C graphs

Why you’d want to create a scrap yarn project

Very rarely you’ll complete a crochet project and use the correct amount of yarn! The result is a huge stash of half used skeins in all different fibres, colours and weights. Not only is this a waste of perfectly good yarn, it takes up a lot of space too. These stash busting projects will help you to use up your leftover yarn and create more space in your craft storage.

Tips for using up scrap yarn

Sometimes it’s hard to remember, but try to match yarn brands, or at least yarn weights together before mixing them on a project. It will help the final product look more consistent, especially after washing. Its a good idea to re-attach the label to leftover scrap yarn so you don’t forget where it came from.
