Totally Tubular Sock Yarn Eater by Valérie Miller

Totally Tubular Sock Yarn Eater

This pattern is available for free.

I was looking for a way to use up various left over sock yarns (and some handspun) in a single project, and had long thought of knitting a scarf/shawl hybrid with crazy stripes. The wrong side of striped knitting sometimes irks me a bit, so I decided to knit a tube on circular needles to essentially double the warmth and squish-factor of the sockyarn and avoid there being a “wrong” side to the stripes.

I used a folded knitted hem to avoid any rolling of the edges at both ends of the knitted tube.
