Worked in garter stitch stripes, this project features an unusual construction and is a great way to use up small amounts of leftover yarn. It would be a fantastic way to use up some self striping yarn- the Lamb’s Pride used in the scarf is as thin as most sock yarns, so those would be a great substitution. I recommend using at least 2 colors of yarn, a solid color would look nice, but stripes show off the construction better.

The directions in the pattern are for a scarf, stole, or an afghan. If you decide to make the afghan option, you’ll need to make two separate pieces following the afghan directions, then seam them up the middle.

The scarf requires approximately 700 yards of yarn, the stole 1400, and the afghan 3000 total. You could get by on less, but that may affect the finished size. Once you complete the center section, you can work on both ends at the same time in order to create matching stripes on both ends.

The cast-on is a disappearing cast-on that can be cinched up after the first few rows. The link to a video tutorial for the cast on is provided in the pattern.
