I was looking for a good way to use up all my excess sock yarn and came across this pattern last fall. I made up an epic scarf and used up a good chuck of my stash in the process. My sister was eyeing the scarf for a long time and I ended up giving it to her for Christmas. It was a hit!

This pattern is so fun to make...... once you get the pattern down, it works up quickly and it's a great way to use up left over yarn. As a former weaver, it is VERY reminiscent of a woven piece, in not just weight, but texture and color play. The needle size was hard to find, but I did as someone else suggested and bought a larger size needle to get the 40 inch length. I can't wait to try it with a heavier weight yarn and an even larger size needle.

Thanks for letting me know how to get the 40 inch length and the needle separately. Loretta

I've been looking for the perfect project for single balls of silk and this is IT! I LOVE the color-play and this fabric is perfect for warmth.

Why wait for winter? With the right fiber, this scarf works all year!

Has anyone done it in heavier yarn?

I used a DK weight. Any weight is fine - just use a needle at least 2 sizes larger than recommended for the yarn. A guage swatch will let you calculate the number of stitches you need.

very helpful information as all my leftovers are DK and was curious about needle size. Thank you.

I absolutely love this project!

Recently, I cast on for the 'epic' size, and I'm already addicted. Watching the colours and fabric change as you work is amazing. :)

I opted for a mega huge size, as I'm after a shawl/scarf that I can use all year. My colour pallette is nice and bright, so when it's all done, it'll look great as a summer cover up in the evenings, but just as good in the winter.

Thank you so much for sharing!

I've never done this stitch before-- is the example knitted with one row per color change, or the two-row repeat in the same color?

Thanks. Can anyone tell me roughly the gauge to expect with sock yarn on #6 needles? ie how many repeats or rows to get an inch?
