Yarn chicken is a game we knitters play, either on purpose or accidentally, whenever we’re almost out of yarn but there is more to be knit. Will we make it to the end before running out of yarn? That’s the sixty-four dollar question. I played three games of yarn chicken (two of which I totally won) while working on this scarf. All yarn hanks are not created equal, regardless of how hard the yarn company tries, and all knitters’ tension is a little different, even when we all remember to do our gauge swatches. With all that in mind, I included options and notes with this design so that you can maximize the yarn you have, and win your own games of yarn chicken.
