A PROJECT WEEKEND BEGINNER PATTERN
Embark on a mindful knitting adventure as you create this speedy and straightforward triangular scarf. With its charming garter stitch texture, enhanced by subtle increases and decreases for a delicate border, this ultra-cozy accessory is a true style statement.
NATURALLY SOFT, NOT CHEMICALLY SOFTENED
We created our LOLL yarn with a special blend of premium Merino and Baby Alpaca fibers to create soft-as-a-kitten warmth and squishiness. Sustainably grown and 100% naturally soft, (not chemically softened), LOLL is grown in the beautiful highlands of Argentina and Peru and spun in a Fair Trade Certified facility.

A QUICK NOTE ABOUT GAUGE
Taking some time before starting a knit project to make a gauge swatch can make all the difference between project success and total complete frustration.
A gauge swatch will tell you if you are knitting too tight or too loose for the pattern you are creating. It helps make sure that what you are knitting will measure out and fit just right. If you are new to knitting, you can also think of the gauge swatch as a test run for learning your stitches before you start your main project.
Cast-on with the recommended gauge swatch stitch count and knit the number of rows indicated in the Gauge sections of the Product Details Notes listed above. Once finished, your swatch should measure out to 4” x 4”. If your swatch comes out too small, it means you are knitting too tightly, so loosen up your stitch tension a bit. If your swatch comes out larger than 4”x 4”, you are knitting too loosely, so tighten up your stitch.
Once you have found your gauge, unravel your swatch (you will need all of the yarn to knit your scarf!) and begin knitting your project!

You will knit this project flat and on every other row, execute an increase stitch to shape the first half of the scarf, gradually expanding it. Following that, on alternate rows, you will work a decrease stitch to shape the second half of the scarf, creating a tapered end.
Special Note: This scarf requires an entire ball of LOLL. After making a gauge swatch, unravel it and use the yarn in your main project. To ensure you have enough yarn for your project, it is recommended to regularly check your gauge while knitting to avoid running out of yarn.
