A clever construction where short rows create two connected triangles, this knit transforms a simple garter stitch square into a double layered triangle. Fold the square along the color divide and choose which side will be front and center for the day!

We used classic Kiln Red with fresh-from-the-mill Poppy Red for an earth and fire incandescent glow. Scroll down for tons more combo ideas, each pulling from a different slice of the rainbow!

Notes

WRP-T (Wrap And Turn)

Keeping yarn in back, slip next stitch purlwise from left needle to right needle. Bring yarn to front. Return slipped stitch to left needle. Turn work so wrong side is facing you.

To see this technique in action, visit our Short Row Tutorial and follow along with the wrap and turn on the knit side section (at 0:30 seconds), except do not bring the yarn to the back before you turn.

Knit With Wrap

Keeping yarn in back, pick up the wrap with the right needle from front to back, then insert the needle into the wrapped stitch knitwise. Knit the stitch and wrap together.

Construction

You will knit this piece lengthwise.

Due to its construction, the unblocked dimensions are fixed to a set ratio. The length of the scarf can be altered by casting on any number of stitches, and the width dimensions will always be approximately 90% of the length. If wet blocking, the piece should block out to an approximate square.
