Simple Sideways Triangle Scarf - Berroco Millefiori Version

Simple Sideways Triangle Scarf - Berroco Millefiori Version

"Bursting with color!"

This lavishly wrap-able scarf is so soft and colorful; you'll love watching the luminous shades unfold as you knit. With a body of garter stitch and just a little something along the edges, this scarf makes up easily from one end to the other, gradually increasing, then decreasing - faster and faster to the finish! In lush and yummy worsted weight Berroco Millefiori, this accessory is plenty woolly. But as it's a blend, just a titch softer around your neck. Just the thing for wrapping up inside or outside your jacket - a perfect triangle for staying warm - and deep enough to wear as a shawl!

GLOSSARY: Inc = increase (knit into front then into back of same stitch); K = knit; K2Tog = knit 2 stitches together; K3Tog = knit 3 stitches together; St(s) = stitch(es); YO = yarn over (bring yarn forward between needles, then back over right needle).


Prepare yarn: No matter what yarn you use, it’s important to reserve a little more than half of your yarn for second half (decrease section) of scarf. If using multiple skeins, use kitchen/postal scale to weigh yarn in grams; if there’s a discrepancy in weight, begin scarf with lighter ball(s). If using one large skein, use scale to divide it in half by weight before you begin (don’t cut; mark half-way point with slip knot and clip in a locking marker or safety pin to hold it in place).

Set-up rows: Cast on 3 sts.
Row 1 (RS): Knit.
Row 2 (WS): Inc 1, Inc 1, K1. (5 sts)
Row 3 (RS): K1, K2Tog, YO, K2.
Row 4 (WS): Knit.
Row 5 (RS): K2, YO, K1, YO, K2. (7 sts)
Row 6 (WS): Knit.
Note: Pin a marker to the right side (RS) of work to help you keep track of where you are in the pattern. With RS facing you, the right-hand edge of scarf (neck edge) will stay straight, while the left-hand edge will angle out with your increase rows then back in again with your decrease rows to form the depth point of your triangle.

Increase section:
Row 1 (RS): K2, YO, K2Tog, K to last 2 sts, YO, K2. (1 st increased)
Row 2 (WS): Knit.
Row 3 (RS): K2, YO, K2Tog, K to last 4 sts, K2Tog, YO, K2. (0 sts increased)
Row 4 (WS): Knit.
Repeat Rows 1–4 until you have 84 sts (or until desired center depth and you have a bit more than half of your yarn left to complete second half of triangle), ending with Row 2. Note: Notice that every RS row creates an eyelet hole at both edges, but only Row 1 results in a net increase. If you see YOs on your needle, it’s time for an even-numbered (plain knit) row. On odd- numbered (increase) rows, glance below to the prior RS row as you near the end of the row. If you see a K2Tog just to the right of the YO, you’re currently on a Row 1 (no K2Tog required); if you see a simple knit just to the right of the prior YO, you’re currently on Row 3 and it’s time for a K2Tog!

Decrease section:
Row 1 (RS): K2, YO, K2Tog, K to last 5 sts, K2Tog, YO, K2Tog, K1. (1 st decreased)
Row 2 (WS): Knit.
Row 3 (RS): K2, YO, K2Tog, K to last 4 sts, K2Tog, YO, K2. (0 sts decreased)
Row 4 (WS): Knit.
Repeat Rows 1-4 until 8 sts remain, ending with Row 2. Note: If you see YOs on your needle, it’s time for an even-numbered (plain knit) row. On odd-numbered (decrease) rows, glance below to the prior RS row as you near the end of the row. If you see a K2Tog just to the left of the YO, you’re currently on a Row 3.

Final decreases:
Row 1 (RS): (RS): K2, YO, K3Tog, YO, K2Tog, K1. (7 sts)
Row 2 (WS): Knit.
Row 3 (RS): K2, YO, K3Tog, K2. (6 sts)
Row 4 (WS): K2Tog three times. (3 sts)
Row 5 (RS): Knit.

Finishing: Bind off. Weave in ends.

Blocking: Soak in cool water with a little no-rinse wool wash; roll in towels and squeeze or run through spin cycle of machine in a lingerie bag to remove as much moisture as possible. Pin to desired dimensions and let dry completely.
