I used a bunch of smaller balls of scrap yarn to crochet hats for Craft Hope’s Project 21: Rally for Roma. Stash busting and charity crafting, two of my favorite things 🙂
I first paired up my balls of yarn the way I thought I would use them, but ended up switching around many of the colors as I worked.
I used a beanie pattern from a project where crocheters made hats for Sandy Hook students. It seemed fitting with the spirit of the charity project and was exactly what I was looking for: something simple that would allow me to make stripes with my scrap yarn without looking messy or unintentional.
Then I remembered some fleece I had in my stash and made three scarves to add to the package. I just sewed two long rectangles together around the edges, turned them inside out, and topstitched.
So here’s how my package for Rally for Roma ended up.
I passed the goods along to my mom to send off. She’s still trying to get some blankets to them before the deadline.
