These appliqué designs are perfect for using up scraps of yarn, and the yarns listed are only suggestions. Pick yarns from your stash then choose a hook size to match. If you want to make all three, we suggest a yarn such as Hayfield Bonus DK or Rico Design Essentials Soft Merino Aran, which come in a good selection of shades.
