It seems to me, if you have enough to finish to the end, you could then, coming from the right side, loop one stitch over the other and use the last stitch to close off. I have it in my mind, but I'm not sure if anyone else can understand what I mean.

I also would also use the alternate row color and just finish off the end. It will be just fine.

Thanks for posting these links. I was aware of this method, but never had to use it. Good to have the links on hand. Thanks again.

Tink back your cast off row.
Reverse the stitches on your needle (I use straights, I see you have used a circ) so pull the stitches to the other end of your cable and then do a 'yarnless' bind off toward the yarn end. pull the yarn through the last stitch. Weave in.

Now this is what I was trying to say.

I would crochet the rest of that bind off and weave in that end.

The yarnless cast off would be perfect for the last few stitches.

This is fantastic! I have been knitting since pre-school and have never even heard of this yarnless bindoff. I love it! Thanks for sharing that.

I used the Russian bind off and that way used more yarn and I had not taken that into account. Too bad I had to use a new ball of wool - yep, I have a yarn stash - for the last piece.

The scarf is practically finished, apart from the threads of the stripes ... sigh ...

Playing Yarn Chicken, I didn't know that expression yet (I'm from the Netherlands), funny, I'll remember that ....

So lucky you had another ball of yarn to use ☺

Yes, luckily I had enough wool in my stash.

Tomorrow I will have lunch with my "sis"friend - she is not my sister but she is my best friend - at the famous vegan restaurant Mr & Mrs Watson https://watsonsfood.com/en/ and then she will receive this shawl as a very early birthday present.

When she saw my first knitted shawl, she was instantly in love and wanted one too, so I promised I would knit one for her birthday in October, but my fingers itched and I knitted it rapidly in the last five days .

Phew, poor fingers

Have you thought of a way to make it look intentional?

You didn't "Quote reply", so I'm not sure, but if you're speaking to the OP, she said in a later post that she had another ball of yarn that allowed her to finish her project - - I'm guessing she'd have preferred not to have needed to crack it open for just a few stitches.
