10 Free Stash-busting Crochet Projects for Spring and Summer

I don’t know about you, but my yarn stash is constantly growing. I seem to have just a *small* problem with collecting yarn. When they say that buying yarn is a hobby of its own, they really weren’t joking.

But some of my favorite projects are ones that I can make with yarn from my ever-growing stash. I love that I am able to crochet something while using yarn that I already have.

Be ready to shop your yarn stash because I have 10 FREE crochet patterns that use minimal yarn,and that are perfect for Spring and Summer! Click on the picture to go to the free pattern!
