Scrap Yarn Ball - ball of yarn in stem glassIf you are a true yarn lover like me, you understand the thrill of free yarn. :) This is a ball of yarn made from scraps that would otherwise be tossed. It's a great way to use up all those extra tid-bits of yarn that would otherwise be useless to create another project. All those teeny tiny little bundles, not to mention your trimmed ends after weaving in your tails.


I will be posting a couple of fun and easy projects that you can create with your new yarn.

Scrap Yarn Ball - scraps of yarn

Total Time: Hour or less

Yield: as much as you want :)

Scrap Yarn Ball - tying pieces of yarn together
Scrap Yarn Ball - adding more pieces



  1. Start with 2 lengths of yarn, anywhere from 2 inches to 2 feet. Tie together with a basic knot. Repeat with a second knot over the first. This serves to strengthen your ball of yarn and makes it more durable.
  2. Continue to add on and double knot your lengths of scrap yarn until you are happy.
  3. When you are finished, you should end up with something like this. Now you are ready to create a truly unique project.

i did this with a bunch of scraps and made a ripple afghan with it. keep all the little tied off "tails" to one side of your afghan as you crochet and you end up with a fuzzy looking side and a smooth side.

If you love scrap yarn and are a crocheter, you can make these. I love knowing I am helping the little critters I made them for.
