20 Free Yarn Stash Buster Crochet Patterns
Choose from these amazing yarn stash buster patterns to use up leftover yarn!
I have compiled a great collection of patterns so there is something to choose from for everybody!
However, all these patterns have one thing in common. They will clear out some space in your yarn storage so you can buy even more yarn!
To me, that is a win-win situation!
Whether you are looking for quick patterns for instant gratification or larger projects that really clear out your stash, you will find them right below in this collection!
1. Stash Busting Scrunchie
The easiest and fastest crochet pattern in this collection is for sure this SCRUNCHIE pattern.
The Crochet Scrunchie Pattern is a simple make using beginner crochet stitches around a hair tie.
It is made simply by using single and double crochet stitches. I used worsted weighted yarn, so the scrunchies work up super quick.
It has ruffles and multiple layers. Make it unique and change colors as you wish.
2. Crochet Stash Buster Cowl
This beautiful Petite Shells Button Cowl makes a quick but easy yarn stash buster pattern.
The bulky yarn used makes it warm and perfect for a quick, one-skein project.

3. Phone Stand
This Phone Stand Wedge is popular right now. Likely because of the extra pockets and because you can use it for a tablet and book also.
This wedge stand can also be used as a pillow and is very comfy. It comes with a video tutorial as well.
