Pattern Description:

Who doesn't love stripes or Pixy Stix? The Pixie Sticks Scarf is a stylish project that can use up your yarn leftovers or smaller quantities of lace weight yarn. Perfect for those seasons when you want to wear a hand-knit accessory but don't need the added warmth of a larger and heavier scarf. For the sample pictured two vintage yarns were used, that are no longer available, but any lace weight yarn would work. It would also look lovely knit up without the stripes, in one solid color.

Scarf is knit on the bias and is stretchy. The edge where the color changes happen, doesn't have as much stretch, due to the yarn used and the color changes. This makes the scarf twirl around on itself. Blocking helps this some, but it doesn't entirely stop this from happening. I happen to really like this effect. If you make a solid version, this shouldn't happen at all after blocking

Gauge:

18 stitches/30 rows in 4" of stockinette (after blocking)

Materials:

  • Main color (MC) yarn - 1 skein of Bucilla Crochet Cotton (size 10), 100% cotton, color Unbleached Ecru, or at least 180 yards of any lace weight yarn.
  • Contrast color (CC) yarn - 1 skein of Bernat Dainty Fleurette, 95% wool/5% nylon, color Strawberry, or at least 160 yards of any lace weight yarn.
  • Knitting Needles - US #6 (4 mm)
