Pointed Triangular Shawl

This shawl is long and narrow, perfect for wrapping around your neck or letting the ends fly. The shawl is knit with an increase section and a decrease section, and the points on the border are knit as the the body of the shawl is knit.
 I used two balls of KnitPicks Palette in Clematis Heather with size 8 needles.

CO 6. Place marker between 5th and 6th sts.

Increase

Row 1: kfb, k to marker, sm, k to end

Row 2: k to marker, sm, k to last st, kfb

Row 3: kfb, k to marker, sm, k to end

Row 4: k to last st before marker, kfb, sm, k to last st, kfb

Row 5: kfb, k to marker, sm, k to end

Row 6: k to marker, sm, k to last st, kfb

Row 7: BO to last st before marker, sm, k to end

Row 8: k to last st before marker, kfb, sm, kfb

When you are less than halfway through your yarn, switch to the decrease section after a row 8. You can weigh your yarn to know when to start decreasing, but since I used two skeins of yarn, I just knit until I just about ran out of the first skein, and then I began decreasing.

Decrease

Row 1: kfb, k to marker, sm, k to end

Row 2: k to marker, sm, k to last st, kfb

Row 3: kfb, k to marker, sm, k to end

Row 4: k to last 2 sts before marker, k2tog, sm, k to last st, kfb

Row 5: kfb, k to marker, sm, k to end

Row 6: k to maarker, sm, k to last st, kfb

Row 7: BO to last st before marker, sm, k to end

Row 8: k to last 2 sts before marker, k2tog, sm, k to last st, kfb

When you have decreased enough times to get back to the original 6 sts, BO after a row 7.


On the first row 1, keep in mind you won't have to 'k to marker', but for every other row 1, there will be a stitch before the marker.  On the first row 7, you will have to bind off 6 stitches, but then bind off 7 stitches every repeat after.

Block this scarf to make the points nice and sharp.


I love the colors in this yarn. The background is a dark cool purple, but then gold, navy, and red are mixed in. My finished scarf is 98" long and 15" at the widest point.  


I hope you enjoy this pattern!

Xoxo, Alyssa
