After completing a small project with Amazing, I was left with about 20 small balls in various colors, each ranging from about 5-15 yards in length. With such short lengths of yarn, I decided the best thing to do would be to make a striped scarf. I used this Brooklyn Tweed scarf as inspiration and cast on 25 stitches. I then worked in a 1×1 rib, alternating between colors every 2 rows. When I used up an entire ball, I simply changed to another. The result is a beautiful mixture of the Mesa, Olympia, Wildflowers, Ruby, and Aurora colorways. While I only used small amounts of leftover yarn, the finished scarf measures about 3.5 inches wide by 60 inches long. I love how the finished scarf shows off both the vibrant brights and delicate muted tones. Best of all, I’ve used up all of the small leftovers that were sitting around my desk! I did have to weave in a lot of ends, but the completed scarf made it all worthwhile.
