Triangle Scarf - Sock Yarn

Sock yarn is not just for socks!

This scarf was knitted with 2 balls of Regia sock wool, with two strands on 4.5 mm circular needles

Triangle - worked in garter stitch, back and forth

Cast on 3 sts.
Row 1. Knit into front and back (Kfb) of first st., K1, Kfb - 5 sts
Row 2 and all wrong side rows. Knit.

Row 3. Kfb, knit to last stitch, Kfb - 7 stitches.

Row 5. K2, Kfb, K4 - 8 sts.
Row 7. K4, yo, knit to last 4 sts., yo, K4.
Row 8. Knit
Now is a good time to mark the right side of your work with a marker or piece of yarn; both sides of the scarf look the same!
I continued with Rows 7 and 8 until I had 170 stitches on my needle, finishing with a knit row.
Do not bind off.
Filet Picot Edging
Sewing the edging to the scarf

Edging - taken from "Knitting On The Edge" by Niky Epstein. You don't have to use this particular edging, but I do suggest that it should complement the body of the scarf.

Filet Picot Edging To make an *invisible cast on:
Using an *invisible cast on, cast on 7 sts. Cast on a number of sts, more than you need with wasted yarn. Knit a row.
Rows 1, 3, 5 and 7 knit. Change to your main yarn and knit 7 sts.
Row 2. K2, (yo, k2tog) twice, yo, k1.  
Row 4. K2, (yo, k2tog) twice, yo, k2.  
Row 6. K2, (yo, k2tog) 3 times, yo, k1.  
Row 8. K2, (yo, k2tog) 3 times, yo, k2.  
Row 9. Bind of 4 sts., k 6.  
Repeat rows 2 - 9 until desired length.  
Do not bind off.  
Easing the edging round the point
Pick up and knit the 7 sts at the beginning of the lacy edging removing the waste yarn. With a good length of matching yarn, sew the edging to the two sides of the scarf, easing it round the flattened point. You may find you need an extra picot. Keep the last 7 sts. on a stitch holder.

Keep the last 7 stitches on a stitch holder.

To finish the third side of the triangle, I knitted a picot edge.
Picot - Bind off 2 sts., cast on 2 sts. (cable cast-on), cast off 5 sts. Continue in this manner until you reach the other side of the triangle. Transfer the 7 sts. of the edging to a needle and finish the picot edging. Weave in all ends. Lightly block.
