Completely frustrating at times, but unbelievably addictive!

Do you like Origami? If you do, then this is the pattern for you! Fold and wrap this scarf in all sorts of ways for a different look almost everyday!

This fully reversible, super fast pattern is worked back and forth from the tip of the triangle to the long pointy tail. It’s short row shaping (and a handful of other little fun techniques) give it a unique personality-- and will surely keep even the most experienced knitter on his or her toes!!!


Needles: US 9 (5.5mm)— slightly oversized for the yarn used

Notions: 2 Different Stitch Markers, Yarn Needle (for weaving in ends), Blocking Supplies

Finished Size (blocked) approximate: 28 in--inside curved edge, 9 in--center height of triangle


This scarf has undergone a lengthy testing phase to make this pattern as accessible as possible to multiple skill levels. I have to classify it as a Tricky Intermediate level. I will keep a page maintained in the Everyday Peacocks Ravelry group with FAQs that might assist you if you get stuck. You can find that here:
