Fit To Be Tied
Make the most of precious skeins - use an easy to memorize 4-row repeat in a pattern that can be adjusted to nearly any size! Knit from tip to tip, simply work the increase section until nearly half the yarn is used then begin decreasing. 50 grams of fingering weight yarn will yield a nice head scarf or neckerchief as shown. Knit a shawlette or scarf size with 100 grams. If you have more than 100 grams, keep going for a generous shawl. By using needles 2-3 sizes larger than recommended on the yarn’s label a nice drape can be achieved with the garter stitch and lace patterns.
To ensure minimum yarn leftovers without fear of running out, weigh yarn before starting and make note of weight. Increase as instructed until nearly half has been used, ending as indicated in pattern then begin decrease section.
