Knit a Cute Tunic With This Leftover Sock Yarn Stashbuster, Free Pattern!

Knit a Cute Tunic With This Leftover Sock Yarn Stashbuster, Free Pattern!

UPDATE: For those of us who don’t have that much scrap sock yarn, you can use a worsted weight yarn to make this tunic. The pattern calls for double-stranded sock yarn or single strand worsted weight.

I have bags of leftover yarn and this may be the perfect way to finally put it to use! The pattern is called Baw Baw, presumably after the Australian mountain of the same name.
