Tuuli designed a lovely shawlette to use up all those left overs. Be creative with the stripes or knit up the shawlette using two or three colours.
140 g of Eco Cashmere DK in various colours. The sample shawl was knitted with Kiruna (main colour, used 60 g), Alta (white, used 15 g), Levi (green, used 20 g), Whiskey (red-brown, used 15 g), Inari (light blue, used 15 g) and Ivalo (pink, used 15 g). Each pompom used approximately 2 g of yarn.

Row 1 (RS): sl2 wyif, k1, m1l, k1, m1r, sl1 wyif, k1, sl1 wyif
Row 2 (WS): k1, sl1 wyif, k4, sl1 wyif, k1, sl1 wyif
Row 3 (RS): k1, sl1 wyif, k1, kfb, k1, sl1 wyif, k1, sl1 wyif

Rows 6-8: k1, sl1 wyif, k1, k to last 3 sts, sl1 wyif, k1, sl1 wyif
Repeat Rows 5-8 until you have 15 sts on the needles. Work from now on 4 rows with contrast colour and for rows with main colour. You can change the contrast colour after every two stripes as in the sample shawlette or use your own stripe sequence. When the shawlette is approximately 30 cm/ 12 inches wide and the next stripe is knitted with main colour, work four rows without increases.
Rows 9-11: k1, sl1 wyif, k1, k to last 3 sts, k1, sl1 wyif, k1
Row 12 (WS): k1, sl1 wyif, k1, k to last 5 sts, ssk, sl1 wyif, k1, sl1 wyif
Repeat Rows 9-12 until you have 15 sts left on the needles. Continue to only with main colour until you have 7 sts left. Bind off sts and weave in ends. Make 5 pompoms (diameter approximately 4 cm/ 1.6 inches) and attach them on the lower edge of the shawlette.
Wishing you lovely knitting time,
Tuuli and Joanna
