This quick and simple little pattern is great for using up oddments of leftover yarn and can be used as a pincushion or a toy. You can use any oddments and just need to match your needle size accordingly, for example I’d use 3.75mm needles with Aran weight, 3.25 / 3mm for DK weight and 2.75 / 2.25 mm for 4 ply (use a thinner needle size than recommended on the ball band in order to give a good finish after firmly stuffing.
