This great scarf is an asymmetrical triangle with a saw tooth edging. It is a wonderful scarf to make with long color changing yarns. The pattern includes the option of adding beads to each of the "points".
One of the fun things about this pattern is that you may make it on any single rake loom, any gauge, any yarn. The first two photos show it in a worsted weight yarn, and the third and fourth photos show a fingering weight. Both were made on a 1/2 inch gauge loom. You may make the scarf as long as you like, but one skein of fingering made the sample in the third and fourth photos, with yarn to spare.
The main part of the section on triangles focuses on three "loom knit basics" - formulas for making triangles. These are the "bottom up", "tip up" and "short row" triangles. The three basic triangles and their many variations are explained in this part of the book.A little kerchief pattern, shown in the fifth photo, is part of the short row formula pattern. Would you believe of everything in the book, the kerchief was the one sample my daughter wanted?
The triangle chapter gives you the foundation for the next section, squares.
To answer questions from yesterday's post, the book will be available October 1, 2012 (maybe even earlier) and there will be multiple pdf files, in 24 point font large print as well as a 12 point paper saver version. The pdf's are compatible with screen readers as well as kindle and tablet friendly. Back tomorrow with the squares.
