I recently knitted some preemie items and had just 50g of white 4ply yarn left. My 4ply mojo returned and I paired it with 50g of cream 4ply to knit these two hats. Combining the two colours produced a lovely shade of pale banana. The white was a baby yarn and the cream was ordinary yarn. Together they made a texture just right for a toddler.
I followed the easy Be Loving pattern which is really for Aran weight yarn, but 4ply doubled works just as well. The pattern comes in many sizes from toddler to adult and I can definitely recommend it as well written, simple and quick. I managed to make two toddler size hats with just a tiny amount of yarn left. I think there might be enough to make bootees or pompoms. Nothing is ever wasted here!
NB: there is a reason why my posts are a bit on the short side this month. All will be revealed in a couple of weeks time!
