There's something about scrap yarn projects, whether knit or crochet that draws my eye, with it's humble yet very unique finish.
Of course, there is the happy melding of colors, but I've seen examples where you would have thought the outcome would be disastrous and yet the placement of colors turned out amazing.
Several design ideas are highlighted in the inspiration images above but any favorite pattern you already have whether knit or crochet will do just fine.
More importantly, you are using up small amounts of yarn that live deep in your closet, somewhere, never to see the light of day.
Another thought is to gather all these bits and have them available to craft with on rainy days, whether at home or at the cottage. Always handy and a good way to bust boredom.
Featured below are several easy projects, fun to do and you just may end up learning a new craft or two .
Traditionally, one thinks of scrap yarn for blankets or afghans.
The blankets featured above are lovely examples of cozy throws to wrap up in while reading a good book.
Though, as much as I love to crochet and knit, there are times when you want something to do that's easy and quickly ready to enjoy.

Be sure to read further for fun projects to try and for the diehard, free knit and crochet hat patterns.
There is definitely something for everyone using up bits and pieces of yarn.
