How to make cool color combinations in a scrap yarn beanie

You're finished crocheting your latest beanie. You're so happy! You can't wait to wear it or give it away.

Then, you look down and realize that you didn't use up all of your yarn. And there's not enough left over to make a whole new beanie. You have scrap yarn! 

What should you do with it?

Throw it away? No. I don't know any crafters who are cool with wasting supplies.

Store it with the rest of your yarn stash? Yeah, you might find a project to use it up in the future, but in the mean time it's going to sit and take up lots of space on your shelves.

How about making a scrap yarn beanie?!? Ding ding ding!!

Crocheting a beanie with your yarn scraps is an awesome stash buster! Imagine how you can use up all those little scraps of yarn that would have otherwise gone to waste. And you can free up space on your shelves for...more yarn, of course.

Plus, multi-colored scarp yarn beanies like these are truly unique! You'd barely be able to replicate one if you tried. 

Here are some tips on how to combine the colors of your scrap yarn pieces to make a fun, cool, boho style beanie.
