For knitters who want to know how to make use of their stash and avoid waste, this collection of patterns has the answer. Every knitter knows that sometimes you have yarn left over after finishing a make – maybe a whole ball, often slightly less than a ball, but either way too much to just throw it away and not enough to return it to the seller. Then there's the yarn you buy without a particular make in mind, just because it's a beautiful colour, or you love the feel of it, or it was in a flash sale. But what can you do with all these lovely bits and pieces? Knitting Stashbusters has the answer: 25 lovely projects specially chosen to use up your yarn. Some can be made with one ball, others use up smaller amounts of several different shades, but all of them are chosen to save you from wasting what you already have in store. You can make a cute garland of hearts to brighten up a room, or knit a penguin toy for a new baby. Perhaps you'd like to make all sorts of cosies, or knit storage pots and a pencil case. Or you could choose to make a cute cottage doorstop using colours that match your own house. And once you've reduced the size of your stash, what better excuse could you have to go out and buy more yarn!

It's a perennial problem for crafters: you have a little fabric left over from a major project, too much to throw it away and not enough for another big make. Sewing Stashbusters has the eco-friendly answer, 25 projects specially chosen to use up the odd metre or less of fabric, so you'll have a clear stash drawer and a clear conscience. To keep you organised while you craft, there are pincushions, knitting bags, and a knitting needle roll. For when you are out and about, you might want to make yourself some garden bunting, or a patchwork coat for your dog. For your wardrobe, make a pretty tie-on collar with buttons from your store, or sew-on patches for your denim. And at home you can make a cat-shaped doorstop or a Dachshund draft excluder. Pockets, pouches and purses can be made in contrasting pieces of fabric, while puffs and rosettes will use up even the smallest pieces in your stash.

For every crafter who has ever wondered how to use the odd ball of yarn left over from a previous project, the answer is here. Now that more and more of us are buying online, there's always a temptation to add one more ball to your basket than the pattern recommends, just in case you can't get the same dye-lot at a later date. Or maybe you are one of the lucky ones who always seems to use slightly less yarn than you expected. And then there are the flash sales online, yarn shop events, or craft fairs, where piles of yarn at knockdown prices tempt you to buy without a particular project in mind, just because it's there, it's gorgeous, and it's cheap. Whatever the reason for the size of your yarn stash, one thing is certain, you won't want to waste any of it (or worse still, throw it away). This collection of patterns from Nicki Trench is the answer to your prayers: 25 makes, small and not so small, which can either be made with one ball of yarn or less, or which use up small amounts of different colors in stripes, squares, or flowers. Many of the makes are ideal as gifts, including baby hats and bootees, toys, cozies, and bunting. There are also projects for the home, such as a stripy pillow cover, egg cozies, and mug warmers. There are also useful tips on choosing substitute yarns and checking your gauge. Now you can stop feeling guilty about your stash, and put it to use instead.
