I love going to knitting groups but there really is a limit to the kinds of projects I can bring and actually work on while being able to maintain a conversation without making serious errors. I also have a habit of buying yarns because I think they’re gorgeous and just want to knit them. So I created Frillyilly (Illy is the nickname of a dear friends daughter).

This reversible shallow triangular scarf/shawlette is a wonderful way to treat yourself to an easy knit that can be worked on with comfort in public without missing a step.

It is constructed in one piece from side to side with a lacy border that forms on all three edges. Increases are worked until ½ way through the skein (or length desired) and then decreases are worked to completion.

I started by designing it for variegated fingering weight yarns but as I make more and more of them (it’s addictive and knits up very fast), I can see it working well on DK (5mm needles) and worsted weight yarn (6mm) with semi solid and solid yarns as well. A great project for that yarn we buy because we love it and just want to showcase its loveliness.

A fantastic stash buster and gift idea too.

The size is very easy to adjust. The orange sample shows 100g fingering weight yarn and the purple used just 56g. I have adjusted the tips of this garment since these photos were taken which brings them to neat points.

Please Note: I have designed this pattern so that it does not require blocking. This way it is more casual as the edges are bouncier and more frilly. Blocking will create a more lacy look. It is up to you!
