Wonder if I'm the only one out there way behind in my holiday gift knitting and looking for quick to knit gorgeous scarves with fingering wt yarns.
I have all these odd ball 100gm skeins of solid, self striping and self patterning sock yarns......want to knit up some really interesting and intriguing scarves with these yarns but haven't a clue what pattern(s) would work the best.
Any suggestions of patterns to knit up quickly would be appreciated.
Thank You
Happy Knitting and Happy Holidays

I saw a fun interesting scarf that was made from two different self-striping sock yarn colorways. The person knit the scarf in a long skinny 2 by 2 rib and half was one colorway and half was the other. She used two different colorways of Regia that had one color in common in both, but I could see using two completely different colorways also.

Good suggestion, Joan - I love that pattern.

But knittingdiva1, you must know that the combo of scarves and fingering weight yarn will NOT be quick! Gorgeous, yes, but quick, no, unless you are a real speed knitter, or if you double the yarn.

I am doing this one in some sock yarn from

My blog is not strictly knitting, but there are occasional WIP updates and frustration or bragging rants as I am a new knitter.

Great minds think alike! I've done a couple using sock yarn and Old Shale/Feather & Fan pattern.

If you crochet the Boteh scarf from Interweave Crochet Spring '07 is a beautiful scarf and calls for 430 yds sock yarn - fingering weight. See it here:
It also works up really very quickly.

It is easier to be forgiven than to receive permission.
