Trinket, a Scarf and Shawl Pattern

I have finished a new pattern! We have been working on this pattern since November. Kay of Cordova Studios has helped me in the designing and knitting of this pattern. It was a delight to have her design ideas with this pattern.

There are four ways that you can make this pattern and all directions are included. The picture above is the scarf, in sock weight yarn.

This red one is the shawl, in sock weight yarn. Notice it can function as a scarf as well.

Isn't the ruffle wonderful? It makes it so feminine. I like the bell ruffle pattern, but that is worked backwards, so to speak, of the ruffle we needed. So, I came up with a ruffle that is sort of a bell ruffle.

The yellow scarf is from worsted weight yarn. There is a dropped stitch design in this pattern too. There are different amount of stitches between the dropped stitches, adding some great interest to the pattern.

Last, but not least, is the worsted weight shawl. This is such a great size. It can drape up and over the wearer's shoulder or hang down as pictured. Believe it or not, it can really be a scarf, too. It makes a heavy scarf, too. Great for cold weather, I tried it out during our snow this past week. :) The bias knitting and dropped stitches allow the shawls, both yarn weights, to scrunch up and be scarves.

This picture, is so you can see the differences in the widths of the sizes within the pattern.
If you decide you like this pattern, you can find it for sale in my shop on etsy, TerrificCreations. If you go there and don't find it, don't be afraid, it will return, it just means that someone bought the one listed and I will relist it.


  1. I can't wait to start another shawl with some of my handspun. It's such fun to knit.

  2. I just LOVE this look! I can hardly wait to try it in the worsted weight. I don't have the patience for the fingering weight shawl. I'm going to dye the yarn in shades of blue-purple maybe so that the color travels along the length of the scarf. Of course, I'll need to look at the pattern to be sure that I can knit it that way, or I may have to rethink my dyeing strategy!
