This is my version of a scarf that was all over the Norwegian blogs some years ago.
The principle is to take one or a couple of skeins, and knit a triangle using your exact amount of yarn.
A good way to use up one of those single skeins of sock yarn in bright colours. It works with any kind of yarn, but I prefer a less than bulky yarn.

Btw, this is a garter stitch scarf. If you make it in stockinette stitch, you will have the Karius version.
Karius and Baktus are two characters in a Norwegian children’s classic.

Mustaavillaa has made a lacy version of this scarf, you can see her notes here.
