Silk Garden is worsted. It would make a beautiful hat!

Here is a pattern for a scarf my sister figured out. Sorry I don't have a picture of one.

Especially well suited to Noro’s Silk Garden yarns because the length of variegations will create a beautiful interlocking triangle pattern, or multi directional pattern.


I used a size 6 needle for Silk Garden and don’t remember how many stitches I used.



Cast on one stitch.

Increase in stitch, turn and k back.
Increase in first stitch, k to end.
Repeat the last row until your work is as wide on the non-working edge as you want your scarf to be. You will have a piece of knitting that is triangular shaped.



To change direction:
Increase in first stitch, ssk, turn, k back.

Increase in first stitch, k1, ssk, turn work, k back.

Increase in first stitch, k2, ssk, turn work, k back.

Repeat row 3 until you’ve used all stitches. Continue repeating triangles beginning each unit with (1.) until scarf is as long as you like.



To end:

Just as you increased to begin the first triangle, we’ll now decrease to form the ending triangle:

Dec in first stitch, k to end.

Repeat this row until all stitches and rows have been worked.

Fringe or not as you like
