Use those scraps and make the Scrappy Scarf!
Do you love a good scrap buster? If so, this Scrappy Scarf will be perfect for you.
By scraps I mean those skeins where you have used part of them for another project but didn’t need the whole skein.
Yes, I used my scraps to design this!
I started 2021 with every intention of using up my scraps throughout the year. I started off well enough but unfortunately I couldn’t keep it up for various reasons outside of Sunflower.
Have you noticed that I used my part used skeins from the Shades of Spring afghan to create this scarf? And it is just so pretty!
I turned my scarf into an infinity scarf, but you don’t have to.
Although this one is, I think, more of a feminine texture you could use manly colours just for him. Maybe it is the colours I have used that makes me think of it more as a female scarf? I am going to design another one with a more masculine feel to it very soon!
Designed for any size part skein
As long as you have approximately 20 yards or more in your part skein this scarf should work out just fine! You can see that some of my sections are way bigger than others because the amounts I had varied.
Go and raid your scrap bucket (making sure you get the same weight yarn scraps!) and come back for the pattern. I have written this one for #4 weight yarn (aran in the UK), but you can use #3 weight (DK) or #5 weight (chunky) if you have more of those.

Materials for your Scrappy Scarf:
- Enough scrap yarn to make a scarf – it looks great using scraps of different colours!
- Stitch markers (optional)
- Tapestry needle
Not important for this project as you are using your scraps – just be sure to use scraps of the same weight yarn!
I used #4 weight yarn and my scarf was approximately 8” wide by 40” long
- fsc – foundation single crochet
- dc – double crochet
- sc – single crochet
- YO—yarn over
- FO—fasten off
-  – everything noted between these is worked into the same st
- Written in US terms.
- Ch1 stitches at the beginning do count as a st unless otherwise stated.
- The stitch count is in parenthesis at the end of each row.
- Note the first and last row of each colour block is a sc row. This gives the blocks a cleaner, crisper edge.
