Triangle Scarf

Some of you asked months ago to post a triangle scarf/shawl using super chunky yarn and I finally got around to making it. It took about 4-5 hours total to work up I think a more skilled knitter can make it in less than 5 hours.

This is a simple triangle scarf using garter stitch while giving it a little interest with an eyelet row every few rows.




The finished measurements for my scarf:
70″/178cm across & 28″/71cm from top to point.
Gauge: isn’t too important but I had a gauge of @4sts = 4″/10cm

Trying to use up scrap yarn from my stash (hence the name) I used about 180yd/165m of Magnum by Cascade, a 60″/152cm long #19/15mm needle and 2 markers to mark either side of the center stitch.

    Triangle Scarf Tips

    4 increases are made on each odd numbered row. If changing colors do so on a Row 5.
    Instead of keeping track of your rows you can kept track of your number of stitches for when you should work a Row 5, so when you have 13sts you worked a Row 5; 21sts work a Row 5, 29sts and so on… when the stitch count has increased by 8sts work the eyelet row.

  1. You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I to find this matter to be actually something that I think I might never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely vast for me. I’m having a look ahead on your subsequent post, Il attempt to get the cling of it!
