What is a Stash-Buster?

Before we get into the list of patterns, let’s cover a few important things about stash-busters. Such as, what ARE they anyhow?

In the crochet-world, “stash-busters” refer to any type of pattern that helps you use up the yarn that you have right now.

The point of a stash buster crochet pattern is not to buy new yarn. Instead, it is to find yarn in your stash, and use it up.

So what can you crochet with scrap yarn?

Pretty much ANYTHING. In the list I’m about to show you, there are 107 amazing patterns. Things from cowls, to washcloths, to headbands, to earrings, to coasters…

You name it, it is probably included, haha!

What I want you to remember as you click into these patterns is that not ALL of them will work for your yarn stash. Why? Because there are such a wide variety of patterns I have included, and your yarn stash will be different from other people’s!

And that is totally okay. As you scroll through, just keep this in mind, and use the patterns that work for you!
