Recently I've seen these triangle scarves/shawls around a lot, and I got kinda obsessed. I found the http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/aubrey-3 pattern on ravelry, which was the first pattern that made sense to me (still a new-ish knitter), and it knits from point to point. I made 2, the first in a yellow-ish sock yarn, following the pattern almost to the letter, only working about 4-6 rows shorter and smaller size needles.



The weird thing is that one side, the decrease side of the triangle, was longer...I wasn't sure if it was because of the lace pattern or the k2tog at the very end of every other row, so I tried another, modifying the pattern.

This has no lace, and (k2tog, k1) at the end of the decrease rows. I also used Sensations Kashmira yarn and sz 15 (US) needles.

Now I'm burnt out on these scarves, and am working a feather and fan lace pattern with my Noro yarn, pictures hopefully soon!
Thanks for looking, and I'd love to know what you all think! Grin

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Thanks! I love the Aubrey Pattern because after a couple rows, I had it memorized (and a safety pin to mark inc & dec rows) and worked it pretty much mindlessly, with some awesome music too of course.

I've been looking at triangular scarves in stores a lot lately - more to the point: I've been looking FOR triangular scarves in stores.

Thank you. I really like the colouring of the first one you made.

No problem, I'd seen them a lot too, and scoured the internet...well, ravelry anyway, for them. It's a fun pattern too! Thanks!
