About this Pattern
The Little Skein Scarf is a simple scarf pattern designed to showcase 5 x 20g mini skeins of 4 ply hand dyed yarns.
And it also works for using up any odds and ends of 4 ply yarns! Use as many colours as you like, simply move onto the instructions for the next section every time you add a new colour. It's great for stash busting!
Using just knit and purl stitches, explore the colours of your yarns through a mix of alternating garter and stockinette stitch sections.
As a guideline, each row will use approximately 34” / 85cm of yarn.
