do With All That Left Over Yarn
Any dedicated quilter will tell you that if
there is left over fabric from a project,... it needs to be kept and
stored away for smaller quilting and sewing projects. The same goes for
knitters. Keep all left over yarns for smaller knitting projects. After
you've been knitting for a while you'll notice your stash growing. Here's
a great project to do with some of that left over yarn. My hair dresser
Sue shares her idea with LovetoSew.com.
It's simple to make and only requires the knit
stitch. Gather coordinating colors you would like your scarf to be knitted
in. This scarf can be done with just a straight knit pattern and every 10
- 12 rows the yarn was changed. I used large wooden needles and I cast on
12 stitches for one scarf, and 15 for the other.
|Make it fun and
interesting and change color and texture of the yarn. Here's one in
black, grey, and white. This is one of my favorite scarves that I
can wear with just about any jacket.
|Once my mom saw the
finished project of the knitted black, grey, and white scarf above,
she put her request in for me to make her one for her Red Hat's
Group. So I gathered all my purple and red yarns and knitted this
scarf for her.
Send us a photo of your project knitted from
left over yarn, we'd love to see it!
