Ocean Breeze Triangle Scarf

This easy triangle scarf looks beautiful with variegated yarns. I used about 30 grams of fine weight yarn with a d hook. 
Ch 5
Row 1: trc in 4th ch, trc in last ch, ch 4, turn. 
Row 2: trc in each trc across, 2 trc in ch 4 space, ch 4, turn
Row 3: trc in each trc across, ch 4, turn. 
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have half the yarn left. 
Row 4: trc in each across, trc 2 tog in last 2 stitches, ch 4, turn. 
Row 5: trc across, ch 4, turn. 
Repeat rows 4 and 5 until you have three trc, including the ch 4. Fasten off, and weave in ends. 
My scarf is about 10 inches at the widest point, and about 66 inches long. I used my wingspan as a guide to decide when it was wide enough, so my scarf is the same length as my wingspan. 
This simple scarf will look great in the colder months. You can make one in every color! 
Enjoy!
Xoxo, Alyssa

    1. As long as you adjust the hook size, it should be fine. You could also alter the amount of rows I did for the size.

    1. With the thicker yarn, you may not need to do as many rows as I did to get the same length. Just follow the guidelines to make it about half your wingspan, then start the decreasing.

    2. does row 3 mean trc in the first trc , in each trc across and trc in the chain 4 made in the prev row?

    3. Yes it does. I'm counting the ch 4 space as a trc here.

    4. thank you Alyssa. I just completed row 3 and so I should have 6 trc's right? I am starting row 4 which now increases so on and so forth......

  4. thank you. So row 3 has 6 trcs at the end. Will there always be a noticeable gap every time i increase with the 2 trc in the prev row? Is thee anything I can do to avoid this or is this part of the look of the project?

    1. I don't seem to have a gap in mine, so maybe you crochet looser than I do. I'm not sure if that would be why, but you could try to keep the stitches tight to avoid a gap.
