Sideways Scrappy Scarf

  I loved making this sideways scarf from small scraps of yarn.

Sideways Scrappy Scarf

It was so easy to knit - and it was fun to see how the oddments all worked together. I chose a variety of colours ~ turquoise, aqua, grey, green, yellow, lime green, beige, blue, cream and sage green. 

All acrylic DK yarns left over from other projects. 

This scarf is worked longways in garter stitch - every row knit. 

And the best bit ? There is no need to darn away the ends from all those different colours! 

Simply tie 2 coloured 'tails' together at each row end, and leave them to be the fringed edges. What could be simpler ?  

Requirements ~

I used long straight 4mm needles - but a circular needle would be just great 

Oddments of DK yarn in colours that look good together 

Instructions ~

Cast on 150sts, leaving a 'tail' of 5" or 6" at each end.

Knit every row - changing colour for very row, and remembering to leave a tail at each end.

When you have used 2 colours, tie the tails together at both row ends. And repeat this throughout.

When you have used all the colours once - you can choose to repeat the colour sequence several times over - or you can work them in a random order ! 

Cast off when you are happy with the width of your scarf. (Around 4")

Trim off the tails to make a neater fringe.

My scarf is for a child ....... for a teen or adult - simply cast on more stitches (180 perhaps) and knit a few more rows. 

I am happy for you to use my patterns for your own use or for charity donations.  
In addition:  You can gift or sell any finished items you make from my patterns.
