Three Sisters (1) is a shawl! Or a scarf! More of a scarf, really. Because it is long.

It combines triangle shawl techniques (at this point, the garter tab is not only not a rectangle; it’s not even a tab—not even a really big tab) and simple stitches for an entertaining knitting project and a highly wearable finished piece.

Choose a good main color and 1-3 contrast colors, or scraps, if you want to go all in. This project is extremely good for those luxe, no-dyelot skeins: the MC is dialed in to take up a whole skein, and

As shown, this scarf uses Cascade Yarns Heritage Sock in Steel/5602 for the MC, and about 40 yards each of Malabrigo Yarn Sock in Ochre, Frank Ochre, and Chircas.

Materials List:

  • 1 skein of MC Cascade Yarns Heritage Sock in 5602/Steel, and ~40 yds each of Malabrigo Yarn Sock in Ochre, Frank Ochre, and Chircas (CC1, CC2, CC3), or 120 yds CC.
  • 1 36-60” circular needle in US3/3.25mm, or size needed for gauge
  • Optional: 2 DPNs in the same size, to be used for i-cord bindoff
  • Tapestry needle

Gauge is 26 sts and 36 rows over 4”/10cm in blocked garter stitch. Be sure to check your gauge if you want your project’s dimensions to match the schematic and sample.
