This shallow triangle-scarf is perfect for easy knitting while you catch-up with friends at knit night. Designed to show-off hand-dyed yarns, it allows the beautiful colours to shine.

Little picots along the outside edge pick out pretty drops of each shade in the yarn. Worked from the bottom up, you keep going until it is as long as you desire, or until you run out of yarn.

Along the top edge, you’ve a choice of finishes - a simple bind off, eyelets and/or picots. Optional beads on picots and eyelets emphasise the colour-play in the yarn.

The simplest unbeaded version is suitable for a novice - the only skills you need for this version are knit, cast on and bind off. It makes a great gift or travelling project.

A great stash-buster for ANY yarn, the pattern is easily memorised too.

Full details of the sizes, yarn quantities etc for the samples shown are given on my blog & in a downloadable pdf with the pattern.

Please make sure you download TWO files - pattern and extra sample details!

Never added beads before? This is an ideal project with which to learn. I’ve written a photo-tutorial. You’ll also find there a 1-sheet pdf version you can print off to put in your project bag too.
