Your probably wondering what to do with all those small skeins of hand spun yarn. I know I was wondering the very same thing as a newbie spinner. My spinning was thick and 4 oz didn’t go quite as far as it does now. So I have some cute ideas for what to do with those small chunky/bulky skeins.
1. Create some awesome headbands ….realistically headbands/ ear warmers only take a small amount of yarn. Here are some freebies from ravelry that I think would look great with hand spun yarn.
A lovely headband that will showcase the uniqueness of your hand spun yarn. You can find the pattern for the Thick to Thin Seed Stitch Headband by clicking on the link or picture.
Another great head/ear warmer in a textured stitch that will show off hand spun. Linky Here.
For those who want a bit more a challenge…..try out this gorgeous headband.
For those of you who really love your cables ……this braided headband is really knotty.
For all you crochet lovers out there this is one of my patterns …..I think I made a zillion of these for Christmas one year.
2. Hats are also a good way to go…..
I love the simplicity of this hat it will show off hand spun beautifully.
The cool textures in this hat make it a must try.
If your hand spun came out super bulky try this hat.…..I want one!!!!!
I have one of these ……believe it or not my hair was once very long…..I love this hat!!!
3. Scarves and Cowls are great for that bit of hand spun bling
Simple pattern that would really show off the colors and texture of hand spun.
A cute girly scarf that would look great in hand spun.
Simplicity is sometimes best this pattern will show off both color and texture.
A thin and thick yarn would make an amazing scarf with the textured moss stitch.
4. What about those tootsies don’t they deserve some hand spun too.
These slippers are awesome with or without the contrast edging.
In one color or an multi-color yarn these slippers will be awesomeness.
These socks are cute and quick….notice same designer as the Bulky Mobius Cowl.
Fitted slippers in a simple design…. I was lucky enough to gifted a pair of these.
5. We can’t forget the other digits…
Easy fingerless mitts imagine the hand spun yum!
Who says you need a bunch of yarn for mittens…..not Haley and not Me….we like instant gratification.
Who says bulky yarn can’t be feminine….These lacy mitts disprove that theory.
I love the cable on these mitts….I really need to make a pair( they have been in my rav queue forever).
I couldn’t forget about the guys…..they need warm mitts and gloves too.
I hope this have given you plenty of inspiration….we’ve covered the body from head to toe. Now get out there and knit with your handspun don’t be afraid ( you can always make more).
