If you’re anything like me, you will have lots of yarn leftovers in your stash - not enough of one type of yarn to make something new, but also too much (and too good) to throw it away. I had long thought about a way to mix up leftovers to make them into something whole, but it took me a while to design a nice little pattern for it.

So, here’s an interesting way of stashbusting and using up some beautiful yarn leftovers. It’s a cowl that is knitted flat - started with a provisional CO and joined in the round by grafting. It’s knitted all in garter stitch - i.e. you do not have to purl. Basically, it’s a chevron pattern on a bias.

The pattern is written for fingering weight yarn, but I have included a way to calculate the number of stitches for other yarn weights and as well.
