Leftover scarflette - Free Scarf Knitting Pattern



After finishing Min's scarf, I had a bit of the Merino Mia yarn left over so I improvised a quick, skinny scarf. Here's the pattern if you have some leftover yarn that's less than 100yds and you want to do something with it. It utilizes the fishnet lace pattern and a simple garter stitch.





Leftover Scarflette Pattern
Needles: US #7 or whatever size you want. The larger the needles, the airier your scarf.

Cast on 14 stitches or any multiple of 2 stitches.

Knit 2 rows.
Fishnet Lace Row: K3, *yo, k2tog, rep from * to last 3 stitches, K3

Repeat this lace row about 20 times, then switch to garter stitch and just knit 30 rows straight.

Repeat these two sections until the scarflette is as long as you want it, or you are almost out of yarn. Then knit 2 rows, and bind off. :) Enjoy!!

I blocked the scarflette by soaking it in a bucket of water with a few drops of Eucalan wool wash (or you can use a few drops of shampoo) for about 2 hours (30minutes or more is generally recommended), gently wringing the water out, rinsing it out in a bucket of clean water, and then blocking it to make it as open as I could. :)

  1. This is cool, but it does look just a little scrappy around the edges. Is it just the way it was laying, or is it really scrappy around the edge?

  2. It is a little scrappy around the edges. I was new at blocking and I think I stretched the edges out by mistake. I'll make another version and put it up! Thank you for your comment! :)
