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! :)

A new free pattern: Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf v1

Today I have a new pattern for all my knitters out there. It's a very simple pattern that creates a gorgeous, warm shawl, just in time for the cold weather. I actually finished this last year but only got the chance to write it up and put it up now. Here it is, the "Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf". Thanks to my friend Johanna P. for modeling this at work about a year ago!! The pattern has also been added to Ravelry here .  Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf A friend of mine saw a shawl similar to this somewhere and asked me to recreate it. I did my best to imitate the look of the shawl, but I cannot for sure say that it’s the same shawl. I thought I’d share the pattern with anyone who might be interested in a light but warm shawl made by striping thin cotton yarn with bulky single ply wool yarn. Because of the lightness of the bulky wool, this shawl can also be worn as a scarf by wrapping it around your neck. The finished product is classy and elegant for very
