Stash-Busting Blog Hop – (FREE) Scrap Busting Crochet Patterns!

Happy New Year! To start the new year with the right foot, I thought of sharing with you these 30+ amazing scrap-busting free crochet patterns!

On average, every new year, I make the very firm resolution that this is the year I’m finally going to attack my stash.

And when I say stash, you might know exactly what I mean!

If you’ve been crocheting or knitting for any given time, you probably grew your own stash without even realizing it.

So now, you have boxes and boxes of yarn of all sorts of weight, fiber content, and colors.

And while some of that yarn might be enough for an entire project in one single color, the majority is not that much at all! Probably, you have lots of these half balls and little scraps from previous things you made…

So, what should you do with them?

The simple answer is a stash-busting project!

Scrap Busting Blog Hop - Raffamusa Designs & Made by Gootie

What is a Stash Buster?

In crochet and knit, a stash buster is a project that allows you to mix and match all kinds of leftover yarn from your stash to create something new, creative and unique!

A stash-buster project can be anything from large projects, such as a sweater, a blanket (a.k.a. scrapgan), pillow covers, etc, to smaller projects, like fingerless gloves, beanies, etc.

One last stash-busting category comprises all those scrap busters, i.e. tiny things that you can crochet with very small scraps of yarn, like appliques, small amigurumi, coasters, chair leg warmers, etc.

So, now that we know what to expect from stash-busting crochet patterns, a Stash-Busting Blog Hop to start the year on the right foot?!

Stash Busting Blog Hop – What is it & How does it Work?

Every day, from January 3rd to February 2nd, 2022, there will be one new free pattern from a different designer.

The pattern will be available as a free Ravelry pattern for 24 hours, starting at 8:00 am EST.

If you don’t know what time that is in your timezone, simply Google “8 am est to”, add the name of your closest city, and Google will do the conversion for you!


In order to get the free pattern, you’ll need a special coupon code that you’ll find on one of the two main blog hop round-up posts.

  • January 3rd-17th January, 2022 – you’ll find all the new coupon codes here on this page (just scroll a bit down);
  • January 18th-February 2nd, 2022 – Visit this blog post HERE on Made by Gootie to get all the new codes!

Once you have your codes, click on the design of the day and you’ll get on the designer’s blog.

There, you’ll find the link to the free pattern.

In case of doubt, just look for a button like the one shown here.

Or Get the Bundle…

If the blog hop sounds like way too much clicking for you, no problem!

Like most blog hops these days, also the Scrap Busting Blog Hop comes with a bundle.

bundle is basically a collection of all the patterns included in the hop, which you can get for a very discounted price.

  1. Greetings!

    I’m wondering if anyone else is having this problem with using the coupon code on Ravelry: after choosing to purchase, in the method of payment box I click on “use a coupon code,” and when I click that, I get a narrow white box way at the top of the screen, and no ability to type anything.

    This has been happening about 50% of the time, but the other 50% of the time it works. So that’s good!

    Also, any idea how to fix this?

    Thank you!

    • Have you confirmed you are signed in? I had a similar problem the other day and after making sure I was signed in (I wasn’t initially) I had no problem.

  2. Has anyone else got issues to add the Gratitude Blanket by Morine to the Cart in Her Shop?
    It says the free pattern today, January 11th 2022 is only available from her shop, not from Ravelry, but it is impossible (at least for me, after countless tries, even rebooting the laptop) to add the pattern to the cart, the page just jumps back to the pattern page, and the cart says that it is empty.
    Now there are a couple more crochet designers where there are similar issues for a lot of customers, one of them is aware and has provided an alternative method to add her patterns to the cart in her shop, and that works fine. Could it be a similar issue here??

  3. Is anyone else having trouble with the axolotyl pattern? I am using the coupon code in Ravelry but it isn’t discounting the price.
    Thanks
