An easy-to-knit accessory scarf in two sizes (petite/tall) with a flirty effect that belies its true warmth and functionality. Choose a sleek solid or go with a more rustic marled tweed for a surprising style contrast, then grab a small amount of brightly dyed yarn in a complementary color for the edging. This design makes the most of that lone worsted weight skein or sweater leftovers. It’s a fun project for every knitting level with lots of bang for the buck and the result makes a handsome gift (if you can stand to let it go).
Sample is knit in Parfait Worsted (main color, Coffee & Cream) with edging in Festivus 6.0 Worsted (contrasting color, Rudolph)
Parfait, Targhee Tango Worsted, Kent Worsted, Stone Soup DK, Green Mountain Spinnery Ragg Time
