I don’t know about you, but my yarn stash seems to grow exponentially-with yarn scraps! Often, I’m left with tons of small yarn balls and no idea what to crochet with them. Some times pairing them up to crochet a larger project is possible.

But what do you do with all those leftover yarn balls when they accumulate? I’ve put together this list of over 18 crochet pattern that only require a small amount of yarn to crochet.

For the purposes of this list, I’m identifying “scrap” yarn as less than a full ball of yarn. A skein of yarn, or a ball of yarn can vary greatly in length of yards. Many of these crochet patterns need only 15-20 yards of yarn to make.
