Free Pattern Friday: Yarn Bobbins


How cute are these little llamas?  They're intended for storing little bits of yarn -- they would really be handy when you're done a project and want to keep a sample of the yarn for future reference or repairs.  Or you might even use a little bobbin like this for intarsia, though I would use pretty thick cardboard.

If you're not into llamas, there are kitten ones, thread-themed ones, these adorable sheep, and little waving animal ones.

Or you could emulate these sly lambs (I can't find these for sale anywhere, but I couldn't leave them out of this round-up!):
