For every crafter who has ever wondered how to use the odd ball of yarn left over from a previous project, the answer is here.
Whatever the reason for the size of your yarn stash, one thing is certain, you won't want to waste any of it (or worse still, throw it away). This collection of patterns from Nicki Trench is the answer to your prayers: 25 makes, small and not so small, which can either be made with one ball of yarn or less, or which use up small amounts of different colours in stripes, squares or flowers. Many of the makes are ideal as gifts, including baby hats and bootees, toys, cosies, and bunting. There are also projects for the home, such as a stripy cushion cover, egg cosies and mug warmers. There are also useful tips on choosing substitute yarns and checking your tension. Now you can stop feeling guilty about your stash, and put it to use instead.
