I'm still on a mission to use up my 4 ply yarn and decided to knit these two preemie knitting patterns.
On the right is the Angel's Pocket. This pattern includes instructions for 4 different sizes and 3 different ply yarns. I was able to knit the 9" size with just 25g of 4 ply yarn. It is a simple project.
On the left is the "Sleeping Bag With Hood" which can be found on the Cuddles UK patterns page. This weighs just 27g. It is a top down knit and very easy as there are no arm holes. So, after the increases, it is just a case of 8 inches of stocking stitch. The hood is picked up and added later. It is another simple project.
These will be going off to a preemie charity eventually. I have knitted many angel pockets in the past and have managed not to think too much about the sadness behind them. The sleeping bag, on the other hand, is tugging at my heart strings and I don't know if I will knit more of these.
