July Knit Lab II: Pinwheel Stash Throw

After seeing a few inspiring projects online (including this beautiful Beekeeper’s Quilt by Tiny Owl Knits) that utilize those scrappy bits of your yarn stash, I decided to devise my own project. I’ve been keeping a separate box for those little balls of leftover yarn and I liked the idea of a larger project with lots of smaller parts that can be worked on over time. I usually don’t have more than one or two WIPs going at any time, so I thought it would be a good challenge!

I really liked the shape of the Beekeeper Quilt modules, but I work mainly in Worsted weight, so I wanted to make something with bulkier yarn. After a few tests, I landed on this garter stitch pinwheel that knits from the outside in (like the crown of a little hat!). It looks good on both sides, so I won’t have to back it and it adds some bulk while keeping the work relatively flat.

I think the most fun will be laying out the colors once I have enough to make a throw!
