Simon says grab your scrap yarn. Simon says grab your knitting needles. Simon Says Stashbuster!

The Simon Says Stashbuster is the second pattern in the Fun & Games Collection for 2019. This fun throw pattern is a great way to use up lots of worsted weight yarn, since knitted blocks are made using two strands of different colored yarn held double, and then all the squares are seamed together. The pattern includes four different patterned, textured squares that use just knit and purl stitches. Beginning knitters just starting out will find this pattern an easy way to try new stitches; advanced knitters will find this a quick way to use up lots of stash. Whatever your skill level, will you play Simon Says Stashbuster?
