If you’re anything like me, then you, too, have a ridiculous amount of scrap yarn quickly taking over your closet. And if you’re anything like me, the thought of throwing away those precious last few yards of scraps causes you pain. At the same time, what can you possibly knit out of just 20-30 yards of fingering weight yarn? So while you’re sitting there, pondering your options, as your stash of scraps slowly creeps up on you and takes over your house…check out this scarf knit by Tracie!
This Leftie scarf is a perfect way to use up all of your different scraps and still end up with a stylish scarf! And because each leaf uses a different yarn, you don’t have to worry about dye lots or making sure all of the yarn is the same.
Tracie knit her Leftie scarf out of Heritage Silk (for the solid section) and Noro Silk Garden Sock (for the leaves). Noro Silk Garden Sock is a wonderful choice for the Leftie if you don’t want to worry about coordinating all of your scraps for a single project. Because the color repeats are so long, you can knit each leaf out of one color and the yarn will do all of the work for you. So if preventing the take over of your scrap yarn is something that interests you, just click here for this pattern! -Michael
