19 Fun Patterns to Crochet with Leftover Yarn

This is a round up of 19 amazing crochet patterns to make with your leftover yarn! Get all the odds and ends used in some fun and free crochet patterns!


I find myself holding onto every bit of yarn! Are you the same? I think there is something tempting about crochet with leftover yarn, don’t you think?

It is the ability as crafters to use up every last bit of leftovers. Unsurprisingly, we do it with food, cosmetics and other materials. The same applies to yarn!

There is something strangely magical and satisfying about using scarps. I personally find it mesmerising to create something beautiful out of something that would normally go to waste.

That’s why, I have teamed up together with other designers to bring you patterns you can crochet with leftover yarn!

These are all stash busting crochet patterns you can follow to turn your odds and ends into something useful and beautiful.

There are some quick projects that would make the perfect last minute crochet gift!

However, I have picked a couple of larger projects – a sweater and a blanket- that will really allow you to use a good amount of leftovers.
