This any-gauge scarf is a very simple project, but by using all leftover yarn scraps to work each row in a different color, and by working it asymmetrically, you’ll make a completely unique work of art for your neck - vary yarn weights and textures as well as color for the most interesting looking fabric.

The easy garter-stitch-esque stitch pattern is worked lengthwise with very basic short rows (no need to deal with wrapping, since there is no turning!), always starting at the same end, making one end of the scarf twice the width of the other end. Tails are left along both edges for fringe.

This pattern is ideal for using up yarn scraps of all different lengths, including very short lengths. If you don’t want to use leftovers, you can use any kind of yarn you want, but to get a fabric that looks like the samples, each row should be a different color from the last. Use yarn in any weight you like, as any gauge will work.

You’ll need 2 long circular needles (the longer the better for at least one of them) to make this piece, but they can be different sizes from each other.
