Whether it’s leftovers from a gnome or a dozen pairs of socks, we’ve all got more fingering weight scraps than we know what to do with! (Except scrappy blanket knitters. You’ve got this sorted.)
This pattern is designed to be easy to knit because you only ever use 1 colour per round. It’s also designed to use even small amounts of leftovers, as you’ll be picking a new pair of colours each repeat.
The pattern comes with a table of yardage by size and height – complete with a breakdown of how many grams you’ll need per stripe repeat in case you’re wondering about those small, precious leftovers that you just can’t bear to throw out.
I’ve also filmed a tutorial to help you knit in the ends as you work in the round so that you won’t be left with scads of ends needing your attention when you’re finished!
