A Merit Badge

I have always had a thing for pinback buttons, brooches &  badges…I love them huge, I love them tiny, I love them kitschy, I love them silly & sweet. Some I don’t love at all, but  still keep them..how can you throw away something so useful!

done in worsted weight yarn, it made a huge pinback! I also used the purl side of my knitting for a woven look.

Here is a super project to put those old pinback buttons to a good new use & show your love of knitting! I have yarns in my stash I have put off using for a project, because I love the color & feel of them so much, I can’t bear to see them gone (you know how it is) now I can always have a little wearable swatch of that irreplaceable/extinct yarn. 

It’s also a perfect use for those little left over scraps or small sample balls. I can’t stop making these…they are seriously quick, done in a snap & have just enough quirk to be cool!

done in fingering weight yarn...KOIGU KPPPM to be exact, which totally makes me melt.

 

 

 

 

I was never a girl scout… I really tried to be, really I did. Well sort of…I  went to 1 meeting and that was it..but I remember the little neck ties & being envious of my sis who had the uniform (knee-highs and all) & those lovely, lovely merit badges. 

                
just a side note: any of my charts will fit perfectly on the merit badge. I made a sweet little owl chart too! Just click on the image to get your download!
