Triangle Knit Scarf
This pattern is good news/bad news! The good news is that I came up with a great pattern for Shibui Knits Kavo. This is a beautiful silk wrapped cotton yarn that drapes wonderfully when used in the right pattern. It's a textured yarn that goes frrom a fingering weight to lace - I've seen it described as being dk. Not a chance! And that brings us to the bad news. Shibui Knits announced yesterday they will be discontinuing it. I can't help but feel that it would've sold better if it hadn't been listed as a dk weight. So .... if you like this pattern, quickly get some ordered from one of the shops that still has it in stock! This is where I got mine. - it's 20% off.
2 skeins Shibui Knits Kavo (this scarf is in the Cascade colorway)
size 6 needles
size H crochet hook
1. Cast on three stitches.
2. Follow this pattern until your triangle is the size you want:
Start with a knitting row: Knit 1, make 1, knit to within one stitch of the end, make 1, knit 1.
Next row, purl straight across.
When you have the size you want, cast off. Using a size G crochet hook, rejoin yarn and single crochet all around, spacing your stitches evenly and putting three stitches in each corner. Join to first single crochet with a slip stitch. Chain one and add a second row of single crochet. Join and fasten off.
I knitted enough for this one to be a scarf, as opposed to a shawl, that can be worn several ways - here are two. And please forgive my phone photos!
Happy Creating! Deborah
