The perfect project for stashbusting! You’ll need four colors (in almost equal parts) - look for yarns that have similar fiber content and washability. They don’t have to be exactly the same brand or fiber content (just similar). If you do choose some fiber that is washable and some that isn’t, treat the entire project as hand wash only. But since this is a baby sweater, washable yarn is a plus.
