In 2015/2016 I went on a sock craze. I was making about a pair every month. As a result, I ended up with quite a bit of leftover sock yarn. What to do what to do with this lovely yarn? Well, I started to paw through my stitch dictionary (A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barabara Walker) and go an idea. What if I used some of my sock yarn and created a cowl of swatches?
The yellow came from my Business Casual Socks. The yarn is Cascade Heritage Solid in Mustard. The stitch is Roman Rib Stitch.
The blue is from my Warm Up Socks using Anzula Squishy in Chiva. The stitch is Slip-Stitch Honeycomb.
The green was used in my Green Jaywalker Socks. The yarn is Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine in Seedling Mix. The stitch is Vertical Lace Trellis.
The red was not used for a pair of socks, but a cowl. It is Knitting Fever’s Painted Desert in Autumn. The stitch is English Mesh Lace.
I tried to balance the textured stitch patterns with lacy stitch patterns to give the scarf a little variety. I love how it came out! I love the bold colors combined with the variety of stitches.
Check out more photos of the scarf in my Etsy Shop. I am also having a Spring Clearance Sale (30% off) using the code: SpringSF17. The sale includes patterns 😊
Until Next Time,
