Mini Mania Scarf
There is just something utterly addicting about knitting together tiny, bright skeins of sock weight yarn, watching the shades shift below your fingertips as the strands form new and glorious color combinations. Knit this scarf by using up all those little bits of leftover yarn you’ve been saving like a dragon guarding its hoard, or collect more from others. Then make it yours by knitting it big or little, fat or skinny, in a random cacophony of color or with a subtle, ordered transition.
This scarf uses the eponymous fabric stitch, or linen stitch, so named because it looks similar to a woven linen fabric. The stitch uses simple slipped stitches to create a dramatic finished project and is knit lengthwise to most accurately replicate the style of a woven garment. After receiving many requests from others asking how mine was made, I decided to share the method to my madness. Now you can learn how to duplicate my results to achieve a truly maniac scarf.
