What's that, you ask?
CIRCLES! Lots and Lots of Circles!
Basically my approach has been to set the leftover length of yarn aside. Then, when I have a small window or time I use my H hook and work them up. I only go 5 rounds total. If I have more left over I make another circle. If the yarn is a lighter weight I may double it up or go down a few hook sizes. I am also not weaving in ends yet. Since I don't know what I'm doing with them I figured I'd regret it later if I did.
Below is the pattern I'm using if you'd like to make your own circles. Of course, this would be awesome with squares, triangles, rectangles, etc.
What would you do with your leftovers?
- Work in rounds.
- R01: 6 SC in magic circle (6 stitches)
- R02: 2 SC in each stitch around (12 stitches). Place stitch marker at beginning of round.
- R03: (2 SC in next stitch, 1 SC in next stitch) repeat 5 times (18 stitches)
- R04: (2 SC in next stitch, 1 SC in next 2 stitches) repeat 5 times (24 stitches)
- R05: (2 SC in next stitch, 1 SC in next 3 stitches) repeat 5 times (30 stitches). Finish Off.
