how to knit a triangle scarf begginners knitting free pattern craft making winterIf you are anything like me you are easily wood by things that are beyond your skill level. I am wooed by triangle scarfs, the lovely draped lace knitting. I once dabbled in lace knitting and never again, I could not possibly swear that much these days as I have two children.

how to knit a triangle scarf beginners novice knitting free pattern

A beginner, or indeed  someone who has never picked up a pair of knitting needles before in their life will be able to knit this scarf, and make the pretty tassels.

how to knit a triangle scarf beginners novice knitting free patternI have been suffering from tendonitis but I am not in a position to get the recommended surgery at this point in my life, I have spoken about this more over on my Instagram feed. I have been looking at ways to manage the pain. I discovered that slight movements, the kind I get whilst knitting with super chunky wool did help. There have been a lot of scarves/hats and cushions in this wool!

You will need;

  • 12mm circular needles
  • 3 balls of Hug It Out yarn from Hobbycraft (or similar)
  • Left over wool for the tassels
  • A darning needle
  • Scissors


  1. Cast on 3 stitches.
  2. KFB (Knit Front & Back) in the first and last stitch of every row.
  3. Knit every other stitch.
  4. When you knit every stitch regardless of the row you create garter stitch.
  5. Continue this way until you reach the end. To join a new ball of wool tie the ends with a simple overhand knot.
  6. Once you are reaching the end of the third ball it is time to cast off.
  7. To make the tassels wrap your chosen wool around and around your smartphone length ways. Do this over and over until you have a good bunch. Then cut two lengths of the tassel wool and secure the top of your tassel in the centre at the top and slide it off your phone.
  8. Next tie the second piece of yarn about 2 finger lengths down from the top tie.
  9. Use your scissors to cut the loop end of your tassels and trim as needed. Use the top tie to attach to the corners of your completed triangle.

Get yourself down to your local haberdashery or to  online to get everything you need. If you plan to use yarn that is not Hug It Out, ( I adore that name for wool), check on the back of the label and it will have the recommended needle size, check for yarn that is compatible with 12mm needles.

    How clever! I tried knitting once but I was rubbish at it – I did manage to pick up crochet sort of. I love the tassels on this and how you use your phone to get them to the right length!
