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.
