Réchauffé: a dish of warmed over food (i.e., leftovers)

You paid how much for that hand-dyed merino? You must use it ALLLLLLLLL!, the subconscious of the Queen.

Some days I swear my yarn remnants are mocking me. There they sit--still as beautiful as they were when they were part of a full skein. But now they are a spent force. There's not enough for a project but they're still too valuable for my tightwad sole to simply toss.

With this pattern I can combine leftovers from lots of projects and create a visually striking cowl and mitts. The design uses fingering or sport weight remnants held triple which reduces the visual impact of any single yarn and creates an almost impressionistic fabric. The pattern includes general guidelines for yarn combinations and quantities required, but emphasis is placed less on micro-managing the details (like color combinations and gauge) and more on casting on and getting those passive aggressive suckers to finally shut the heck up!

Réchauffé is accessible for even the newest knitter--absolutely no advanced techniques are required. The resulting fabric is a surprisingly beautiful, wearable "scrapbook" of projects past.

NOTE: Sample pictured was made with a mixture of multiple colorways; we have made a similar color suggestion in the Kit Builder below.
