Cute hat that uses all of your odds and ends! Make your own "crazy" ball of yarn and then knit or crochet a hat using your favorite pattern. Put all of the knots to the outside. Trim the ends so they are relatively even.
How to make crazy yarn: Take all of your bits of leftover yarns which have been accumulating.Cut them into assorted lengths (no greater than six yards) then mix them all up and knot them together randomly. No fancy knotting technique, just leave a tail of about an inch or so. Don’t worry about fiber type and thickness. Mix together cottons, acrylics, wools, novelty yarn, and every possible blend in between.
