If you’re like me, you have a basket, container, or storage unit full of yarn left over from older projects. You’ve sworn to use it, but can’t find the right pattern to use up those odds and ends. Well, you’re in luck! Saddleback was designed with those leftovers in mind. Not only is this a perfect project for those leftovers, but this is also a great beginner color work pattern. Short floats and using up leftovers is a perfect recipe for a really satisfying project.
