Are you looking for an adorable, quick, tiny, colorful little giftable knitting project? These little cuties take just part of an evening and some leftover sock yarn!

Footsy includes two sizes of footbag (think hacky sack) with four different colorful patterns. These are stuffed with plastic rock tumbling media and it’s just the absolute perfect weight. Plus you don’t even need to play with them; you can just stack them up and admire the colors and patterns!

This project is part of my Acts of Kindness subscription series. Thank you for knitting my patterns and supporting indie pattern design! Use #romiphyle and #romihill or #romidesigns to connect on social media.

About my project

Welcome to my oddments project number two! (See the first one here.)

This has been a tough few years for many. Me too. And one thing that’s gotten me through is giving people I care about small gifts. Let’s face it: big projects are beyond what many of us want to do right now. But small bits of knitted love are so manageable, and they’re so satisfying when finished and gifted. And even moreso when they’re made from oddments.

And I wanted to share that lovely feeling with you, because we all have those stray bits and pieces of yarn here and there. They’re different weights and different colors. Some are a full skein. Some are just leftover tidbits, but you can’t throw them away! Definitely not a sweater’s worth of any one color or yarn, let alone a shawl’s worth or even a full pair of socks or mitts. You can’t imagine what to do with them, but you don’t want to part with them. Well. This is the book for you! 15 patterns to turn your scraps into loving bits of kindness that will brighten your friends’ and loved ones’ day.

The patterns for this eBook will be delivered to subscribers within a subscription period ending February 15, 2022 (delayed). There is no specific delivery time for each pattern; the goal is to release at least the majority of patterns in 2021. But because life has been fairly unpredictable of late, I want to make sure you all understand that it may take until February 15, 2022 (delayed) to deliver them all. All patterns will have charts (if needed) and written instructions, and you will be able to make them out of oddments. These are small projects, not big ones: the perfect size for a cozy evening or two of stitching in front of the fire.

Note that purchasing the eBook represents a significant discount over purchasing each pattern separately. No refunds can be given for buying the patterns separately and then, at a later date, purchasing the complete eBook. If you have made a single pattern purchase in error and wished to purchase the book instead, please contact me within a week to resolve the issue. Thank you!
