Twig - the skinny scarf made from scrap sock yarn is the perfect size to wear under that smart business suit or terrific shirt.
The spring time allows us to stop wearing heavy jackets but, something around the neck is still in order at times. This skinny, sweet scarf is great for all weather.
What's best is you can knit it from any type of yarn it will just change the size and width of the scarf which means each time you knit it you will have a whole new scarf.
I just love sock yarn but, sometimes knitting socks is just too much, this scarf allows you to use whatever you have and it knits up quickly. Go as long or short as you want. Use a button or create a loop to attach. You can customize this scarf so it fits you.
Easy cables and basic lace stitches.
Both charted and written instructions.
