Simple Sideways Triangle Scarf Project - Serena Version

Simple Sideways Triangle Scarf Project - Serena Version

"Absolutely scrumptious."

We've had several versions of this scarf in our Bainbridge Island shop over the last few years. The shallow triangle shape with nice long ties encourages us to wear it in many creative ways, and we especially like the way it looks in Manos Serena’s heathered shades that flatter all skin tones. The lightweight yarn has a soft hand and a gentle halo that is a slice of heaven around the neck.

We've enhanced our pattern to include two sizes.  We show the new smaller, shallower triangle in pearly Oyster and the original larger size in variegated Deep Sea.  Both sizes require two skeins of Manos Serena.

Click on "The Free Pattern" tab and then choose two skeins of a lovely shade for your delectable scarf.

FINISHED SIZE
Larger version: Approx. 64" across (wingspan) by 13" deep.
Smaller version: Approx. 58" across (wingspan) by 11" deep.

YARN
2 skeins Manos Serena (170 yds/155m each); or approx. 255 (330) yds/233 (302)m of a sport-weight yarn with nice drape. Note: smaller version uses approx. 1½ skeins.

NEEDLES
US 6 (4mm) needles, or size to obtain gauge.

GAUGE
22 sts = 4"/10cm in garter stitch, after blocking.

See the "Basic Details" tab for size, yarn, needle, and gauge information.


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 it for the second part of the scarf (decrease section). If you’re using two skeins, weigh your yarn in grams; if there’s a discrepancy in weight, begin your scarf with the lighter ball. If you’re using one large skein, divide skein in half by weight before you begin, using a kitchen/postal scale.

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 60 (72) 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 oddnumbered (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 oddnumbered (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.

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:
