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 I love them sweet. Some I don’t love at all, but still keep them, how can you throw away something so useful!

Here is a super project to put those old pinback buttons to a good new use while show your love of knitting. I have yarns in my stash I have put off using for a project, because I love the color or 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 and have just enough quirk to be cool!

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 and being envious of my sis who had the uniform (knee-highs and all) and the sash filled with those lovely, lovely merit badges. 

If you’d like to have a go at making your own badges, my merit badge pattern is available for free on Ravelry HERE. I hope you love it!

Want to use my sweet little owl chart on yours, you can get it right HERE.

You can find all of my current designs on Ravelry.

(p.s. any of my charts will fit perfectly on a merit badge)
