Knit Breckenridge Triangle Scarf

What a week guys! Let me tell you, I have been going 100 miles per hour all week and am happy as a clam to finally be sitting down and working on something that isn’t homework or grading. Four consecutive 14-hour days has me wiped out. I have a hot date with some Lion Brand Thick and Quick and my DVR tonight. Don’t judge me but, I need to catch up on the Bachelor In Paradise finale. School and work get so stressful, homework takes 10-15 hours per assignment, and my brain is so fried by the end of the week, I just need some mindless TV and the Bachelor franchise does the trick!

Anyway, let’s get to why you are here, The Breckenridge Triangle Scarf. This may look intimidating but it is totally beginner friendly. I will note, the YO (yarn over) that begins every row may seem a little less intuitive to English knitters (holding working yarn in right hand) but once you get the hang of it, it is easy peasy lemon squeezy. I have included a video below for all my “throwers” out there!

I have been so insanely excited to release this pattern. I am even more excited for the weather to finally cool off so I can wear this scarf Every. Single. Day…. in Every. Single. Color!!! This is a quick knit, despite the cables. We will use stitch markers to block off the cable section… you know…. to keep counting to a minimum. I don’t know about you guys but I tend to knit while watching tv and have a tendency to lose track of what stitch or row I am on. I used a 24″ cable because that is what my local Michaels had, but feel free to use a longer cord if that is more comfortable for you.

Special Stitches:

C8F (Cable 8 Front): Slip next four stitches onto a cable needle and hold in front of work. Knit next four stitches. Knit stitches off of cable needle.

C8B (Cable 8 Back): Slip next four stitches onto a cable needle and hold in back of work. Knit next four stitches. Knit stitches off of cable needle.

 Notes:

  • We will be placing stitch makers to designate the cable portion of the scarf. In each row the section in between the stitch makers will be denoted |knit| which means, knit all stitches between stitch markers.
  • To make the scarf longer, continue garter stitch after Row 54 until desired length is achieved.
  • If you forget which row you are on, count your stitches, divide by two and that is the row you just completed. E.g. You have 44 stitches on your needles, you just completed Row 22.

Before starting the scarf, I recommend making the tassels. This will ensure you don’t have to play yarn chicken during bind off.
