Triangle Scarf with Leaves Border - a 'how-to'

Triangle Scarf with Leaves Border



This is a lovely pattern, Dreieckstuch mit Blätterrand, with a great video on youtube on how to work the leaves.

k    - knit
p    - purl
kfb - knit into front and back of same stitch

Rep rows 6 to 23.

I started this in a variegated yarn but might look for a plain or tonal yarn as the leaves don't seem to be very defined in this quick colour changing yarn. 
Let me see how that works out......:)

  1. Sounds like a pretty pattern Rupi! I saw something similar at a notions store in the Garment District of NYC but they only had a sample, not an actual pattern. It was made with green-yellow tonal super bulky yarn and looked amazing. I might cast on for this..oops after working off some of those pesky ufos!

  2. I just might give this yarn a try - it could work!
    Let me know if you do cast on :)

  3. I'd just watched this video and was looking for a leaf pattern to be able to make this. I love it. Thanks for the save.
