How to Knit a Triangle Scarf

How to Knit a Triangle Scarf - Free Tutorial

In this free tutorial we show you step by step how to knit a cozy shawl for the cooler days ahead. The triangular shawl is knitted in garter stitch, meaning that you will be knitting every row (no purling!). The border and the middle are embellished with an eyelet pattern. 
Our DIY triangle scarf in pink measures approximately 110 cm.  


You will need the following for this Triangular Scarf Free Knitting Pattern: 

Tip: You can use 2 balls of yarn (100 g each) to make a longer scarf.  

Gauge


22 stitches and 24 rows = 10 cm 


Let’s get started!


The triangle scarf will be knitted starting at the long side and finishing at the tip. The centre spine will be knitted loosely and evenly as you go along.

Increase at the beginning of each row and also in the middle to the right and left of the centre stitch to create the triangle shape. 
By only knitting back and forth you will be creating a ribbed effect.  
The centre stitch is the middle stitch created by the 3 cast on stitches.  


Row 1: Cast on 3 stitches and knit
Row 2: Knit 1, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 1, turn
Row 3: Knit 5, turn
Row 4: Knit 1, yarn over, *knit 1, yarn over*; repeat ** until last stitch and finish by knitting 1, turn 
Row 5: Knit all stitches, turn
Row 6: Knit 3, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 1 (this will become the centre spine), yarn over,  knit 1, yarn over,  knit 3. Turn.

Tip: Make sure to follow the pattern when knitting the centre spine: Knit right side rows and purl left side rows.

After about 70 ribs (for a length of appr. 1.10 m) purl the left side row. If you are going for a larger triangular shawl then knit more ribs. In the next right side row, knit 2 together, yarn over, and remember to increase at the edges and the centre. Turn over and purl the left side row.

After that, knit the right side row and purl the left hand side. Knit another 3 rib rows. Hide the threads with a darning needle and tie off.
