Stash Scarf

Stash Scarf, in Vegan Blue Handspun

Random single skein of funky yarn in your stash?  Use any yarn with any needle size you like to create this unique scarf.  It comes out different every time, so make a whole stash of them.

Me, Enjoying my Stash

Yarn/Yardage: Anything you have; obviously, the size of your yarn and needles, and the size of scarf you want, will determine how much yarn you need.

Needles: Any size that produces a fabric you like.

Gauge: Unimportant for this project.


pw: purlwise

k1 f&b: knit 1 stitch through both the front and back (increase)

k2tog: knit 2 stitches together (decrease)

Note: You will slip the first stitch of every row as if to purl.  The rest of the scarf is all knit stitches.

To begin, weigh your ball of yarn (I like to use grams).  Write down this number, as it’s very easy to forget.

CO 2 sts.

Row 1: Sl 1 pw, k to end.

Row 2: Sl 1 pw, k1 f&b, k to end.

Repeat these two rows, and weigh your yarn ball often, until you have slightly more than half the ball remaining, while also ending on an odd row.

Row 3: Sl 1 pw, k2tog, k to end.

Row 4: Sl 1 pw, k to end.

Repeat these two rows until you have 2 sts remaining.  K2tog and fasten off yarn.  Weave in ends.  Voila!
