Free Pattern Friday: Triangle Infinity Scarf!
Happy Friday everyone! Recently I've been devoting most of my time (while fighting off a nasty cold) to improving my life overall and working on fulfilling my new years resolutions. One thing I've promised myself is to move beyond my comfort zone with crochet & knitting and work on creating patterns for new projects that I would have never thought to attempt in the past.
Since creating my social media sites & expanding my reach, I've looked to fellow designers & bloggers for inspiration. One trend I've become intrigued with is triangle scarves. I've always loved the shape & bulk they create while staying super soft & squishy, and it's a fun alternative to the generic circle infinity scarf.
The triangle infinity scarf used in my example is actually a gift my mother asked me to make for a close friend of hers. She was looking for something simple and casual, but also fun and unique. I'll admit, the finished scarf for this pattern is not exactly the original scarf I had intended to make... by accident. I initially wanted to make one that wrapped around to the front with the ends hanging down. Once I was already a skein and a half deep, I realized that if I wanted to achieve the right length for the ends, then the middle portion around the neck would be way too wide & thick for just a casual, everyday scarf. I was also too stubborn & didn't want re-start without trying to come up with an alternative plan first.
That's when I tried holding the ends together underneath the scarf and alas- my Triangle Infinity Scarf was born. It was perfect for what I was looking for! It's incredibly soft & gives just the right amount of thickness around the neck to stay warm without feeling too bunched. It's solid and simple design also allows it to be worn with any outfit for any occasion. Not too bad for my first design of 2018!

Triangle Infinity Scarf
2 skeins weight 4 yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver in "Heather Grey")
I - 5.5mm
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
dc cluster = 3 double crochets in same space
F/O = finish off (ch1, cut yarn and pull tail through to create a knot)
Chain 3 at the beginning of each row counts as 1dc
Don’t ch1 between dc clusters
All end dc clusters have 4dc & middle clusters have 3dc
The 1st dc cluster of each row is worked between the 1st & 2nd dc posts, and the last dc cluster of each row is worked between the 3rd & 4th dc posts
Ch 4 & create 4dc in 1st chain (5 incl. ch3)
Ch3 & turn. Skip 1 & create 3dc in space between 1st & 2nd dc posts. Skip 3 & create 4dc in space between 4th & 5th dc posts
Ch3 & turn. Skip 1 & create 3dc in space between 1st & 2nd dc posts, 3dc in space between the dc clusters from previous row, 4dc in space between 3rd & 4th dc posts
Continue this pattern (ch3 & turn, 4dc (incl. ch3) between 1st & 2nd dc posts, 3dc in space between clusters from previous row & 4dc between 3rd & 4th dc posts of last cluster) until there are 51 clusters total across
