Who doesn’t love stripes or Pixy Stix? The Pixie Sticks Scarf is a stylish project that can use up your yarn leftovers or smaller quantities of lace weight yarn. Perfect for those seasons when you want to wear a hand-knit accessory but don’t need the added warmth of a larger and heavier scarf. For the sample pictured two vintage yarns were used, that are no longer available, but any lace weight yarn would work. It would also look lovely knit up without the stripes, in one solid color.

Since the scarf is knit in stockinette on the bias, the edges will have the tendency to curl in, which I like for this lightweight type of scarf. Blocking will help some, but it probably won’t stop it from curling as it gets worn. If the curling really bothers you, you can knit the body of the scarf in garter stitch and do the ruffles in stockinette. Just an idea.
