Stash Buster Challenge – How to use up your yarn stash with free crochet and knitting patterns.

This week sees the third instalment of the Stash Buster Challenge (#sbchallenge) and I’m so happy to say I’m involved again with another free pattern! Do you have a huge yarn stash you are hanging onto for just the right project to pop up for? I know I do! A big yarn stash has never been such a cool thing to possess (that’s what I’m telling my husband anyway) because now is the time to dive into it. Get that treasure trove out and enjoy every calming moment that crochet and craft bring is what I say. Yarn bomb your house! Yarn bomb your family! Yarn bomb your life! Because if it makes you happy, then that’s my job done.

The amazing Janne and Hortense from Joy of Motion and Knitting with Chopsticks came up with the concept of the Stash Busting Challenge I’m so happy to be involved!

A whole host of designers have come together to offer you a huge collection of FREE crochet PDF patterns to start making a dent into that yarn stash you have squirrelled away. We all have one that we were slightly embarrassed about but now you can be proud of it!

How Does It Work?

The Stash Busting Challenge is brought to you by some fantastic designers for the full month of April. A ton of designers are coming together to bring you a new set of free PDF patterns each week. The pattern sets will be updated each week at midnight EST each Wednesday. This means that on Tuesday 11:59 PM EST each week the previous weeks patterns will no longer be free. So don’t miss out! 

If you want to get updated each week when the new set goes live, sign up for my newsletter (you’ll also get a free PDF of one of most popular patterns!)

How Do I Get The Free PDF Patterns?

Each week I’ll add the full list of free patterns available here (you can also sign up to my mailing list to make it easier if you like). Each pattern will be linked to the designers blog post about their pattern. You just need to find the ‘DOWNLOAD THIS FREE PDF PATTERN’ button in the post and click on it. You will be taken to Ravelry where you just use the magic code ‘SBCHALLENGE’ to receive the pattern for free.

You can download as many of the patterns as you like during the week that they will be free for!

This is the button that you’re looking for in each of the blog posts:

Is That All There Is To It?

Absolutely, you just find the button, use the code and the pattern is yours. We are trying to help as many people as we can by giving patterns or you to enjoy.

We hope that it will also help people discover new designers, blogs and a new crafting community which is more important than ever at the moment.

Make sure you share using #sbchallenge on social media so that we can enjoy seeing your makes and connect with you too.
