Stashbuster Project

stashbuster scarf (2) Here is a way to use up left over sock yarn.  The pattern comes from Jared Flood – the Noro Striped Scarf

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/noro-striped-scarf

Use about 25 g of variegated sock yarn and another contrasting solid color.  I used Ballard from Jojoland – sock weight wool.  I have black, white and purple in stock ($4 per skein)

Cast on  39 stitches -

With solid color knit in pattern for 6 rows and then alternate between 2 rows of variegated and then 2 rows of solid.

Row 1 K1, P1 to end

Row 2 Slip 1 purlwise, K1, P1 to last stitch and slip purlwise

repeat these rows until you have reached desired length – finish with 6 more rows of pattern with solid color.
