How To Knit An Easy Triangle Wrap For Fall

This triangle scarf is really easy to make for any beginners as all you need to know are some basic knitting stitches.

You start with just two stitches on your needle which forms the point of your triangle and you build it from there, by adding stitches at both ends until you have a large triangle wrap.

You can see how this is done in the video tutorial in this post or check out the video tutorials in the Knitting Tutorials section.

I made this scarf over a weekend, watching Peaky Blinders and drinking tea, it’s a good ‘no-brainer’ mindless knit, that is easy to do while watching your favourite shows.

Triangle Scarf

This scarf has been made with a self striping yarn from Caron, which looks great next to a white top and denim.

I used a super bulky yarn for this that I bought from the UK called Caron Tea Cakes (80% acrylic and 20% wool) in Ginger Spice 291220.

I knit this with size 8mm (US 11) 32″ circular needles. I used the circular needles as there are so many stitches and it was easier that way.

I also used my beloved knit pro sinfonia multi-wood interchangeable needles that are really smooth to work with.

Knit Triangle Scarf

This easy to knit triangle scarf is a really great addition to your wardrobe for the colder months, as it can be worn loosely around your neck with a light jacket, or sweater, used as a shawl, or as a cover-up for when you visit the park for a walk.

I recently wore this to the park for a walk with Jason, the weather was a little fresh, but it was too warm for a sweater.

This pattern is perfect for beginners who want to start with something easy or if they want to practice increasing their stitches.

How To Wear A Triangle Scarf

Once you have made your triangle scarf, you might want to wrap it around your neck to wear as a scarf, loosely drape it around your shoulders as a shawl or wear it as a cover-up.

As you can see in some of the photographs I chose to wear this scarf around my neck, because even though the sun is shining, the air is still a little chilly in the shade.

The yarn is really soft and comfortable to wear, you could use this type of scarf with any number of fall outfits.

You may want to add chunky tassels to each end point of the scarf, you can view a tassel making tutorial through a link in the post.
