Operation Use Up Yarn Scarf 3 - Chunky Rainbow

I’m continuing on with my Operation Use Up Yarn, and today I got out this chunky rainbow yarn. I don’t remember what I had originally bought the yarn for, but I do remember that the skeins I had purchased had been full of shorter pieces tied together with knots. I had written to the company, and they replaced the yarn. This is that yarn.

I wanted to do something kinda boxy with this one, so I made up my own pattern, although I realized I forgot to do a row of single crochet on the other end when I finished like I was going to! haha!

Anyway, I chained 11 sc. Then I went back and sc across. The next row I chained 3 then dc in next sc. I repeated ch 1 two dc across.

It measures 62 inches across not including the 5" fringe.

If anyone is interested in having this scarf, please pm me. I don’t wear scarves and I’d love for it to go to a good home.

Stay tuned for the next installment of Operation Use Up Yarn.


No way! You have elves helping you!!!

You are a crochet machine!

I love this one…looks so happy and warm…and it is long so it can wrap a few times!

I will have to take a picture! I have a really big 30-40 or so gallon tub in the garage I am working through. Plus, there is a little yarn in the house.

I wish I had your energy and enthusiasm to work through my tubs…I will cheer you on and knit in my dreams! lol

I’m not really all that excited about this project, but I’m plugging along! I do have a cute out-of-current-season amigurumi that is in the queue. Not sure if it’ll be next or more scarves.I may end up making pot holders because I have more chunky yarn, but not enough of any color to make a scarf. Oh, I could alternate black and white instead of pot holders. I have both those colors in chunky.

I do prefer this to making masks though!


Sounds like a plan!

Why not donate it? There are women’s shelters and homeless shelters that could use items like this, with winter in full swing!


Donating is definitely on my to-do list for this project. :slight_smile:

I love how bright and cherry this scarf it! Perfect for the short, dark days of winter.

I seriously don’t think you could be using up your yarn any quicker if you set it on fire! IMPRESSIVE!


You’re doing great busting through stash!
