- Choose your patterns from the internet or library books. With so many free patterns are available, it doesn’t make sense to pay for one.
- Pick pattern that emphasize your skill, not a beautiful yarn. It’s tempting to go with a quick, simple pattern that gets its glamour from the yarn that is used, but it is also a lot more expensive.
- Make mainly knit and crochet things you really need and would have bought anyway. If you know you will need to give a baby gift or buy a new sweater for December, choose these as your projects. Crocheting another scarf when you already have 6 in your closet, is a waste of time and money.
- Buy your supplies at yard sales, thrift stores, sales or ebay.
- Reuse yarn from garments you no longer enjoy or those bought second hand. There are some great instructions on how to do this available on the internet.
- Feel free to substitute a cheaper type of yarn for a more expensive one. Some free patterns from yarn companies feature their most costly yarns. Often a cheaper yarn will also work with the pattern.
