Helix Knitting: Perfect for leftover charity yarn

Hey y’all! I know we’re continuing our month of charity knitting, but I wanted to think about how we can keep some of that momentum going through the rest of the year. If you’ve found that you have little bits of yarn leftover from all your projects but don’t want to just toss them, this is an awesome way to use it all up for more projects that can be donated throughout the rest of the year.

Helix knitting is a super colorful way to incorporate lots of different yarns in a cohesive way that’s perfect for kid’s projects, which means it’ll be an even faster knit!

I’ve got some helpful resources linked that show how it works, as well as the pattern for the hats featured in the photo:
