Using The Small Stash of Little Bits.

Baby Hats 1

You remember that little stash of left over baby yarn in my last post,  well I pondered a bit and decided there was only one thing I could do with it really.





Yes baby hats of course.  

I love making them but I get bored if I stick to one pattern and so because I know as I work through the large baby stash, there will be more and more bit's of yarn left and that little stash will eventually become a big stash of little bits, if you get me. 
Lets face it, that big stash of little bits will make lots of hats so I will be doing a search of free baby hat patterns and trying them all out and sharing the results with you.
I hope I didn't confuse you will all of that I know what I mean anyway haha.






This pattern is so easy and quick and even more easy if you can master the circular needles or Dpns, I can't! and so I am ashamed to say these are made on two needles.




Baby hats are always needed by our charities so I know once I have made that mountain of hats they will all find a good home. 

These were made with Double knit yarn and 4.00 mm needles
They weigh in at 18 grams each.
Find the pattern here 
Thank you Una for the inspiration.


Have a great weekend everyone and I'll see you on Monday :)

  1. They look so nice...they are both nice actually but I think I prefer the green one only because I like green lots :-)

  2. I still can't get over seeing my name on the Internet. I was thinking "What a good idea" and then saw at the end of your post that it was my idea. Lovely hats. I do the same with my small bits.

  11. Very kind of you to give to charity, I have done that in the past but have somehow gotten away from it. I really must learn how to knit....for some reason I find it "prettier" than crochet....funny....considering how much I love to crochet.
    Love your new header!
    Happy Sunday,
    xoxo, Shari
