While organizing the mess of my yarn stash, I found a few random skeins of yarn. Typically when I buy yarn, I try to do a good job gathering and labeling the yarn for the specific purpose I had in mind when I purchased it. This helps me stay organized and on task from project to project. It also cuts down on my impulse buying if I only purchase material I have the specific intention of using. Even so, I am far from perfect and these good intentions are not without a few impulse sale purchases. I also have the habit of gratefully accepting any yarn donation offered, leaving many unintentional (and often unlabeled) collections of materials tucked in here or there. So, my yarn stash is in constant need of organizing, which it receives on too rare an occasion. This go round, I was left with several skeins of yarn and no project in mind for which to make use of them.
In hopes that I am not the only one facing the “one skein problem”, I wanted to share with you a stash busting, one-skein project that works up quickly and makes a great project from fall to spring. It is both fashionable and functional, making it an easy go-to for gift giving or charitable crafting – the Marielle Scarf.
The open nature of this pattern creates a stitch with fantastic drape and enough warmth to remove the chill. This is ideal for the transitional cooler weather moving from fall into winter, or winter into spring. Due to the rather muted tone of the material I was working with, I decided to add a pop of color and whimsy by attaching tassels at the ends. These fun and easy accents bring a bit of color, but can easily be left off the project to keep your scarf simple and modern.

Repeat Row 2 until desired length, between 60” to 65”.
Attach Tassels (optional)
If you have never made tassels before, I suggest checking a few how-to videos on Youtube. They take practice, just like creating pom-poms, but easily add a pop of color or texture to a wide range of crochet and crafting projects.
I attached the seven (7) tassels evenly spaced along the beginning and ending edges of the scarf. The tassels measure approximately 2 inches long, and were created using some embroidery thread I had on hand.
