Leftovers. Everyone has them, everyone hoards them – especially when they are some precious hand-dyed yarn that is not always in stock.Well, now their time has come: Leftie is an asymmetrical shawlette that was designed to show off your favourite little leftovers. The stripes will swirl around your neck in a very flattering way, and the cute tiny leaves are the perfect way to make your favourite colours shine. It‘s all garter stitch, so the knitting is all fun and relaxing.
You start with three stitches, adding wider and wider rows and forming a long and narrow triangle. The little leaves in contrast colours are formed by short rows that are explained in the pattern. This pattern is very flexible: You can use any amount of yarn and end up with a small neckerchief, a small or bigger shawlette. The shawlette in the pictures used 165g of Wollmeise Pure 100% (ca. 130g in main colour plus 5-7g of each of six different colours of contrasting leftovers). An alternative is suggested below.
