Knit this: Triangle Garter Stitch Scarf Shawl – Free Pattern

Triangle Scarves - Free Pattern

View File to PrintThis lovely project was made by Lisa from our Craft Warehouse Design Team. The pattern uses the Garter stitch and is made up with the DK Colors yarn by Mary Maxim. The DK Colors are designed to create broad stripes of color as you knit or crochet. Each cake contains 5 coordinated colors. It only takes one cake to create this shawl. Each cake has 383 yards! This is an amazing value.

The DK Color yarns knit up very smoothly and could be used for a multitude of projects. The yarn is machine wash and dry. 100% anti-pill acrylic.
