Unleaving is a simple scarf with an uncommon edging. Knit entirely in garter stitch from end to end—not a purl in sight—it’s a great stash buster for small amounts of finely spun handspun or single skeins of commercial sock yarn. Exact gauge is not critical, and you can weigh your skein before you begin and customize the length to use the yardage you have on hand. You can easily substitute commercial yarn—a 100-gm skein of sock yarn is perfect but lace- or sport-weight yarns will work, too.

If you have any trouble understanding the pattern, I hope this blog post will help.
