Triangle Scarf

20181213_124855Sometimes when you’ve got a REALLY beautiful skein of yarn it’s next to impossible to choose a pattern to make with it. No matter what you try, nothing measures up. That’s how I felt about this gorgeous Leo & Roxy yarn in their Bohemian colourway (the rainbow one on the right). From the moment when it arrived and I held that yarn in my hands I knew I wanted to make it into a triangle scarf. I knew I wanted something that would really show off the colours. The problem was finding a pattern to match what was in my head.

This yarn proved to be a more difficult puzzle than most to figure out. I literally tried 4 or 5 different patterns because nothing looked right. I tried crocheting with it. I tried knitting with it. The patterns I chose were just not showing off the colours the way I had intended. So in the end, I winged it. I just started crocheting. I would crochet a few rows, rip a few out, so on and so forth, until finally, I found something that worked. This pattern uses some of my favourite stitches (bpdc and puff stitches) and I think the simple stitchwork and the repeats in this pattern really allow the colours to be the star. I’m not going to lie, this scarf is HUGE! It used approximately 4 1/2 skeins of yarn to complete, but it was completely worth it.

If you like, you can add tassels to the corners. I found the added weight of the tassels helps the scarf to drape nicely.

I hope to see many beautiful scarves made from this pattern. Enjoy!
