What could be more perfect for spring than a striped triangle scarf, crocheted by hand? Now that winter’s ending in NC, I don’t need to wear warm, heavy scarves (like my worsted-weight, color-blocked infinity scarf). Instead, it’s all about cute, stylish scarves that can upgrade a simple tee or dress. Scarves are my favorite accessory for spring and fall, and triangle scarves are a classic!

I’m calling this baby the Stardew Triangle Scarf. Basically, it’s a teal and grey striped triangle scarf that’s perfect for newer crocheters. It features simple stitches (double and treble crochet) and fun tassels, so what’s not to love?

The Stardew Triangle Scarf is part of the 2021 Blog Hop, hosted by Furls Fiberarts. Head over HERE each week to check out the latest knit, crochet, and Tunisian patterns!

I named this the Stardew Triangle Scarf, because I was playing Stardew Valley when I should have been working on this blog post and crocheting my scarf. They recently dropped the latest update, which allows my partner and I to play split-screen on our Switch. PLUSSS there’s a whole new island to unlock!

So even though I started this scarf months ago, I was scrambling to finish in time. Don’t worry though, all my animals are fed, the roe from my fish ponds is collected, and I’ve got a sweet keg and cask set-up in my basement. Meanwhile, my partner spends every day on the island trying to find a dragon tooth.

The Tools

I used Whims Merino DK, which is a soft blend of superwash merino and nylon that’s z-twisted for crocheters. It glides on my hook and has excellent stitch definition. I chose teal (of course!) and light grey, but there are 10 yummy colors to choose from.

For the hook, I chose a G 4.0 mm Odyssey in silver and nickel. The Odyssey hooks are a little heavier than a standard crochet hook, but the weight is balanced and the ergonomic shape reduces hand and wrist pain. Silver is the newest color and I was SO HYPED to try it out! It’s sparkly AF, and I absolutely love it! Frealz, can you see those f*cking gorgeous sparkles?!

Furls Fiberarts generously supplied the materials for this pattern.

Add tassels to corners if desired. I used my gauge ruler as a template to create ~6 inch tassels that I sewed to each of the three corners of my triangle scarf.
