When I first discovered The Heathen Housewife's (Shelly Kang) Blankie Tutorial, I was inspired to translate the techniques into a short scarf using sock yarn. The small size of the squares means each only uses 2.5 g of yarn. When using variegated sock yarn, each square turns out different than its neighbour.
This pattern may be worked in any fingering weight yarn. It is particularly suited to variegated or handpainted sock yarns but would be equally attractive in solid coloured yarn.
Yarn: 548 to 635 yards of wool or wool-blend fingering weight yarn that knits up to 8 sts/inch.
