Stash Busting Challenge: Week 2!

Welcome to Week 2 of the Stash Busting Challenge! If you’re just dropping by for the first time, this is an awesome event put together by Janne of Joy of Motion and Hortense of Knitting with Chopsticks where we work through our stashes of yarn and put it to use. Every week in April, a group of designers will be releasing patterns perfect for stash busting and you can grab the free PDFs of the week’s patterns over on Ravelry.


Last week, we kicked off the challenge with 16 awesome patterns that you can check out here if you missed them. The PDFs will no longer be free, but the patterns are still available if you want to make them anyways. 


You can also sign up below to get on the email list for reminders about the Stash Busting Challenge so you don’t miss any patterns!




How to Download a Pattern



Click the images or titles of the patterns you want to go to the designer’s page. 


On that page, look for the free download button. It’ll take you to Ravelry or the designer’s website where you can grab the free PDF. We’re all using the same coupon code to make it easier: SBCHALLENGE



Share this with friends!


We’re so excited to host this challenge and have so many amazing designers join us. If this is an event you enjoy, help us share the event! There are buttons at the top and bottom of this page for sharing to Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest if you want to help us spread the word. 


Please share THIS PAGE, not the individual pattern pages. That way, everyone can see how to download patterns and all the designers get a chance to be seen. 


Now, let’s get into the patterns!

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that the forest trail headband links to Creations by Courtney again instead of the actual blog (I'm not sure who the creator of this one is). Thanks so much for the patterns!
