From coast to coast, all knitters have one thing in common: leftover yarn

Odd Ball Knitting solves the conundrum of what to make with your yarn stash by offering more than thirty beautiful projects that don’t look as if they were made with odds and ends. From stylish accessories to decorations for your home, there’s something fun and unexpected to knit from every strand you’ve been saving. Patterns are organized within chapters by the amount and type of yarn required to complete each project, so knitters with lots of extra yarn will rejoice in the Felted Patchwork Rug or the funky I-80 Poncho, while those with a more modest collection can stitch Curlilocks Finger Puppets, Mini Christmas Stockings, and other quick projects. For the scarf lover in all of us, a special section featuring reversible scarf patterns provides clever new ideas for everyone’s favorite first project.

Transforming your collection of mismatched yarn into stylish, practical accessories has never been easier. Author Barbara Albright offers strategies for using color, determining yardage, and combining yarn in unique ways. Odd Ball Knitting provides fresh new designs to change your hodgepodge of scraps into ingenious, fashionable, one-of-a-kind creations.
