Book Description

This unique book explains how you can use up the small balls of yarn that are leftover from project making, to make bespoke ‘scrapcakes’ chunky balls of scrap yarn specifically to suit a crochet pattern.

Crocheting with scrapcakes gives the finished project a multicoloured scrappy look but in a considered way, because the author explains how to create the cakes to get the perfect colour contrast. She also explains how to make scrapcakes with different colour themes by sorting your scraps into tonal groups before winding them up, it's the perfect way to play with colour and make unique yarn for your crochet projects.

The front of the book will feature a section all about how to make the scrap cakes which author, Naomi Vincent, makes on a winder. She does also explain how to make them if you are winding the balls by hand in order to make sure that the yarn comes from the centre of the ball while you're working.

Naomi explains how many lengths of each colour yarn you need for each part of the pattern, how to measure it out and in what order, how to do the ‘magic knot’ technique to join the yarns and the order they need to be wound in.

In addition to the instructions about making the scrapcakes there are 10 crochet projects for colourful scrappy makes including a shawl, scarf, bag, hat, cardigan and different sized blankets and throws. This has everything you need to bust your stash of yarnlings and make some amazing crochet projects along the way!
