I went stash diving and realized I have lots of single fingering and mohair lace leftovers from other projects. I also have sock yarn leftovers but I save them all to make scrappy socks !
I was craving a very sweet, squishy, mindless yet creative project to use them all. I hope you’ll enjoy it too.
Since it’s a scarf and a scrap project you can stop just when you feel like it, I have not finished mine yet, I can’t give you the finished size (except for width, it’s about 35cm) but I felt like it was a project I wanted to share and knit along with other, this is why I’m giving you my recipe to knit this fluffy scrappy scarf :)
Yarn : 400g of fingering weight scrap yarns, it will be held double, this is the total amount you’ll need.
You can also replace the fingering weights yarns with one strand of DK, in this case you’ll need 300g of Artemis DK.
100g of mohair silk lace leftovers.
Needles : 8mm circular needles with a 60cm cable.
With two strands of fingering weight yarn and one strand of mohair silk lace, cast on 41 stitches using your preferred cast on method (I used long tail cast but did it very loosely).
Row 1 : k1 (edge stitch), *k1, sl1yo, repeat from * until 2 stitches remain, k1, sl1p wyif.
Row 2 : k1 (edge stitch), *sl1yo, brk1, repeat from * until 2 stitches remain, sl1yo, sl1p wyif.
Row 3 : k1 (edge stitch), *brk1, sl1yo, repeat from * until 1 stitch remains, sl1p wyif.
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until desired length is reached.
Cast off using your preferred stretchy method.
