I’ve joined; The Stash Knit Down 2008. My goal is to finally do something about my stash. I took the first step and donated a full box of unloved yarn, to send to a woman, who is going to organize a swap box (take one out, put one in and send it to the next on the list). For obvious reasons I’m not participating in the swap, but thought it would be a great way to have my unloved yarn get some love.
So here’s a pattern for you, it’s easy and you decrease your stash in one evening with almost 1,000-4,000 yards. :-) Enjoy making it!!!

6 Balls of sock weight yarn (approx. a total of 1000 yards/918 meters).
Use 6 strands held together.

24 Balls of sock weight yarn (approx. a total of 4000 yards /3670 meters).
