Easy Mini Skein Shawl / Scarf Knitting Patterns for mini skeins sets #2
This project went much faster than I thought it would. It is a great addition as the spring makes it's way to our area. I love things that can span the seasons to get the most use from them . At 96" long and 19" deep (lightly blocked) it can be used as a shawl or scarf or for color accent under or over a jacket.
I used a set of 5 mini skeins ( sock weight ) and 1 full skein ( sock weight ) 3.75mm - Us size 5 circular needle
Worked from side tip to side tip. I cast on 3 stitches and worked in garter stitch increasing every second row buy 1 stitch ( knit one stitch front and back on the same edge each time ) until I had 15 stitches on. At that point I used 5 stitch garter edge with the body or center in sockinette stitch. I did increases for the first 2 mini skeins . The center 1 mini had no increases and the last 2 minis were decreases instead of the increase.
The first mini was 4 rows with the mini and 2 rows with the full skein. #2 mini was 4 rows with the mini and 4 with the full skein , the center was 6 rows with the mini and 4 with the full. Mini #4 was 4 rows and 4 rows the #5 and last mini was 4 rows with the mini and 2 with the full skein.
