Crazy and striped … haha
Happy scrap is a randomly striped pullover (perfect to work up all the little leftovers in your stash) with a circular yoke, a gentle A-line and long fitted sleeves. It is worked top down in one piece and completely seamless. Short rows are used to lengthen the neckline at the back and to shape the diamonds at the sides. These give the ‘happy scrap’ its’ high-low hem.
There is no length given because you can make the happy scrap as long or short as you prefer. The placement of the diamonds can also be chosen (high as pictured below or low as pictured above). I can very well imagine ‘happy scrap’ in a very short cropped version or as a longer tunic.
The pattern includes instructions and tips on how to work the short rows, how to work jogless stripes, weave in ends as you go, how to make a provisional cast on, and much more …

Happy scrap is also available in Danish. Thanks to the lovely Asta-Denmark on Ravelry.
The Danish text is in separate pdfs but all the illustrations are in the original English version, so you will have to check the English version for the schematics and illustrations.
