Swatchtastic - by Tin Can Knits

I love making swatches! You may not feel the same, but with this quick and easy pattern, you can create a nice tidy stack, all while testing out the yarn for your project. At the end of the year you will be ready to make a pretty garland of swatch bunting to decorate your craft room, child’s room, or to have on hand for parties!

Swatchtastic is the free pattern from our book, Mad Colour. You can check out all of the fab and fun designs here.
