Stash Busting Challenge: Week 3!

Welcome to Week 3 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.


Although the patterns from previous weeks are no longer giving the PDFs for free, you can still get the patterns from the blogs! Head over to week 1 and week 2 to see the patterns already shared in the Stash Busting Challenge!


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!
