Earth Week is here!
This year's theme focuses on Stashbuster Projects that aim to reduce waste by using left-over yarns and offer a more responsible way of using our precious resources.
These projects are a great way to promote sustainability.
The Scrapbuster Satchel has moved here.
Yarn: Uneek Worsted
The Petek phonecase is crocheted with an easy, beginner-friendly Half Double Crochet Moss Stitch, using about 20-30g of Uneek Worsted. It’s first worked flat, then the sides are sewn together using a Blanket Stitch. Finally, a strap to hold the flap closed is added, as well as a decorative tie finished with a puff stitch. The 3 sizes provided can be easily customized to fit any phone by adjusting the stitch and row counts.
Yarn: Uneek Worsted
This cute little crocheted keychain will bring a colorful personal touch to your keys or bag, using small amounts of Uneek Worsted. Attaching optional beads or charms to the end of the chain in the final step adds a personal touch to your Bonjuk keychain. Boncuk means “bead” in Turkish, pronounced “BON-juk”.
Yarn: Uneek Fingering or Uneek Sock
Knitting Stripy Scrunchies is a great way to use up any precious bits of leftover yarn, while practicing Provisional Cast On and a Modified 3 Needle Bind Off techniques on small, yet functional accessories. They are knit seamlessly in the round in stockinette stitch, using any leftovers of either Uneek Fingering or Uneek Sock Kit. The pattern is written for 3 sizes, but is easily customizable according to the yarn amounts available.
Yarn: Uneek Worsted and/or Monokrom Worsted
Spring cleaning! What better way to use up all those remnants of Uneek stripes and Monokrom ombres, than to repurpose them into a quick and colorful satchel bag?
With a nod of thanks to @MarinJa, the motifs were inspired by her Pixelated Scarf and Kim’s Kabuto, reformatted to blossom from garden rows of wrapped flowers worked flat from one to the next with no seaming. The base and straps are worked in a sturdy welt stitch in the round, the straps bound by I-cords on either side. The only seaming are Kitchener joins at the satchel base and I-cord ends.
