It’s a great feeling when you finish a pair of socks or shawl in fingering weight yarn, but then what do you do with the left over yarn? If you are like me and have little balls of sock yarn hidden away throughout your home, then it’s time to cast on for Stash Bash!
Stash Bash comes in two versions: Mild or Wild. The Mild version was knitted with two full skeins of Kismet Fiber Works Fingering yarn. The Wild version was knitted with one full skein of Bugga and varying amounts of left over sock yarns.
The pattern includes directions for both and how to adjust the sizing if you would like a larger or smaller shawl.
Yardage Requirements for using left over yarns:
416 (463) yards of yarn for the main color.
1. 4 gm/10 yards
2. 9 gm/15 yards
3. 12 gm/20 yards
4. 13 gm/25 yards
5. 15 gm/30 yards
6. 17 gm/35 yards
7. 19 gm/40 yards
8. 21 gm/45 yards
(9. 23 gm/50 yards)
Please note that fingering weight yarns do tend to vary in weight a bit, so it is a good idea to have a little extra of each color. Not all fibers weigh the same ;)
This is one of those fun projects where gauge is not critical to the outcome of the shawl. Keep in mind that if your gauge is different than what is called for that you may use more or less yarn and the size of your shawl will be affected.
