I often make what I call "scrap yarn" sweaters for children. I go through my stash and collect enough enough balls of yarn in similar weights and complementary colours to make a sweater of the size I want, and then I begin knitting, making up the pattern as I go along depending on how the supply of each colour is holding up.

This is one of these sweaters, which I made for my niece Peaches when she was five. Not shown in the picture is a little tam I made to match the sweater. The yarn is plain old acrylic worsted except for the bright blue, which is an acrylic boucle.
