Too much scrap yarn!! Need ideas!!!

I started running out of space to put my yarn and have too much scrap yarn. Literally a draw full of just unlabeled yarn different sized yarn. I need ideas on what to make and/or what to do with it. I know I can make a scrap ball of yarn but idk how much of each color to add or how to start it. I would really appreciate the feedback.:hugs::hugs::hugs:


I have the same dilemma, only I have plastic bins full! I saw this idea online the other day and thought it was a good idea. I’ve been working feverishly on xmas gifts but it’s on my to do list…


I’ve seen people make scrap yarn blankets! You start with one color and just keep going until it ends - then tie the next piece on and continue. It may look odd or funny, but they work great for donating to pet shelters! Doing just a basic double crochet (or basic stitch in knitting etc) across also makes it a super quick project.


Oh my goodness, that’s sort of what I’m doing right now! I’m crocheting one big granny square out of little balls of scrap yarn-small enough to fit in my purse without crowding everything else! :blush: :wink:


Is that made out of all scrap yarn? Or is it a crocheted basket FOR scrap yarn? :smiley: It’s so pretty! If it is made out of scrap yarn you can’t tell :blush:


The Crazy Sock Lady takes her scrap yarn and puts her scraps together with a magic knot, you can find it on youtube, and then she winds it up as she adds the yarn into a big ball to knit scrappy blankets, socks or other things. the magic knot is secure and doesn’t show.


Can you use different yarn textures?


Yup! Whatever you like! If it’s for an animal like a cat they often like having different textures mixed in. Gives them different stimulation!
