This scarf is a little different not in design but in colour scheme. I wanted to use up whole balls of scrap yarn so I would not end up with scraps left over. This meant I would be adding new yarn mid row and I did not want to sew in ends, this posed a problem until I found this on You Tube
Joining Yarn with a knot
Yes I know this probably goes against the grain and everyone has their own favourite way of doing things but I really get fed up sewing in ends and decided to give this method a go. It works well and the knots are so tiny they disappear into the knitting. If I add yarn to the edge of the work I would not use this method and sew in the ends but for mid row this is fine.
Adding a new colour mid row shows the change over with the old and new colour like this
I knitted 2 rows black and 2 rows in the new colour throughout the scarf ending with 2 rows in black before casting off.
A simple Garter stitch scarf on 5 mm needles using 50 stitches, the scarf is just over 60 inches long.

I have made the scarves and hats for them before and they use up stash nicely and bright colours are welcome as well. I created stripes as I have a lot of black yarn and loads of odd balls of yarn to use up.
