Caron Cakes Triangle Knit Shawl

The best things in life are free, or at least, they come for free when you buy yarn. I found this pattern on the inside of a paper sleeve of yarn. This pattern is simple, gorgeous, and oh-so squishy.

I love Caron Cakes yarn (or any self-striping cake yarn) because I don’t have to think about it. It’s soft and cozy (a wool-acrylic blend will achieve that), it’s already caked and I don’t have to re-wind it, and the color palette is already chosen for me. It takes out all the guesswork. Even more than that, I love one-cake projects too, though this one was about a 1.5 cake project.

This pattern is so easy. Knits, slips, yarn overs, more knits. Like most projects, I added a slip stitch edge so I get that beautiful even edge. This scarf is knitted in a triangle, starting with just a few stitches (yay for small cast-ons!). They always feel like they take forever in the middle (because they do when you’re dealing with 100+ stitches), and then finish up super quick at the end, which is good, because after hours of garter stitch I’m ready to be done with it. But look how pretty!
