Little FOs: Stash Buster Bags!
I found a great pattern at Cider Moon for "Baglove", which I have now dubbed, the best little scrap stashbustin' pattern around.

Each of these bags took 2 nights of knitting (maybe 3-4 hours total) and I only used yarn scraps from my stash. VERY easy. I highly recommend them as gift bags, little wrist purses, or you could skip the eyelet row and make them premie hats for charity! Try them felted for wool scarps - OH the possibilities!

Thanks for looking!

way to bust some stash!

do you really think they would work as preemie hats? :thinking: (not doubting you, just asking)

Yep, I think so...mostly because I folded over the opening (which would be the brim on a hat) and my daughter said "Mommy, that looks like a baby hat!"). You could just leave out the eyelet row (or leave it in and thread it with ribbon).

To make it a little bigger, you could always cast on 54 stitches intstead of 48, or even more to make a wider circumference, then just do some even decreasing after 5-6" of knitting.

Super quick knitting!

Those are cute! Is it big enough to use as a knitting bag for socks? Looks close.
