Accent scarves are perfect little accessories to add a bit of color and soft texture to your everyday outfit. So why not knit some pretty little lace ones that are just as versatile as your silk ones AND allow you to use up those gorgeous leftover bits from your yarn stash?!

Well, here you have just the design that will let you do that! This mini scarf pattern features a very pretty, all-over leaf lace stitch. The ends are elegantly tapered and the middle section is thinner to eliminate any bulkiness when worn around the neck or tied around your head or purse strap.

Each mini scarf works up beautifully using small amounts of fingering-weight yarn. By changing the lace repeats worked in the middle section, you can adjust the length based on the intended use and how much yardage you have on hand.

You could even knit the first half in one color, and the second half in another to make mini scarves in school colors! Or perhaps alternate the colors every two rows for a striped effect. Either way, these are fabulous gift knits!

Shortest length: ideal if you have less yarn (or time!) available, are mainly using as a ponytail or purse accent. (Grey and Smokey Blue samples)
Medium: most versatile, can be used as a ponytail or purse accent, will stretch to fit most as a hair band or small neck scarf. (Turquoise and Pink samples)
Longest: great as a neck scarf or as a hair band with longer tails, as it’s approx the diagonal length of a standard 22” / 56 cm square bandana. (Yellow sample)
For all lengths: widest part of tapered ends is 3” / 7.5 cm; narrowest middle section is 2 ¼“ / 5.5 cm.

Yellow, Blue, and Pink samples are in Purl Soho Linen Quill. Purple multi-toned sample is in madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light. Grey one is in Berocco Folio. Easily substitute a fingering-weight yarn from your stash!
