The very easy pattern for this triangular design requires no sewing or crochet hook to complete – the fringe is simply knitted on at the edges as you go. The samples in the photos were knitted fairly loosely using 5.5mm needles and a lovely tweedy silk yarn from Habu Textiles (A-164).

The first size uses a single 28g ball to create a neckerchief, but if you continue on with more yarn you can just as easily make a larger scarf from 2 balls, a shawlette from 3, or a more substantial shawl using 4. I have also used this pattern to showcase many other luxury yarns, including qiviut.
