Tips and Tricks

Use up your yarn stash. Colorful Thanksgiving patterns are perfect for stash-busting. Use up small amounts of leftover yarn to make mini projects like leaf appliques or acorn embellishments.

Block your projects. Block items like table runners and doilies to create a professional, finished look. 

Safety first! If giving your project to a child, secure any small pieces very well. For children under 3, avoid safety eyes and opt for embroidered eyes instead.
