Menten is a long shallow triangular scarf which is knit lengthways in garter stitch, with a simple lace edge. It will show off a variegated or self-striping yarn, any weight from 4-ply to aran. Use needles that give a fabric you like - I’d suggest using needles one or two sizes larger than normal for your yarn.
I used 1 skein (100g/344 m) of Arauacania Ranco Multy shade 337 & 3.25 mm needles.
If you want to make sure you use all of your skein of lovely yarn then before you start, divide yarn into two balls of equal
weight. Knit the first half of the scarf (increasing) until the first ball is used up then the second half (decreasing) using
the second ball.
Named after Canadian biochemist Maud Leonora Menten.
