THE LONG SKINNY may just be the ultimate scrap busting project. Gather up all your fingering and sock yarn scraps, bits, letfovers and minis for this one. Even the leftovers from your sock yarn blanket or other scrap busting project can be included. No bit is too small! Every inch of each yarn can be utilized here. You can even mix bases and fibers.

You will need approximately 300 grams of yarn (or more, to best figure out color combinations) to work with.

The yarns are grouped by color and then knit into an eye-catching long wrap with tapered ends that is both versatile and wearable. The piece is knit end-to-end and finished with an i-cord edge for a clean border and an additional opportunity to use up more leftover yarn. Alternatively, skeins of your favorite fingering weight yarn can be substituted for one or both of the color groupings of scraps. The easy garter stripes make for relaxing knitting while the ever-changing yarns keep you engaged and eager to continue.
