Troika Scarf :: Stash Busting Odd Ball Scarf

Check your yarn stash or shop odd-ball sales

A super easy scarf that is knit sideways along the length in garter stitch. This scarf design features look-alike cast-on and bound-off edges.

The scarf is named "troika" for the method of using three different yarns in alternating sequence. It's great for odd balls or using small amounts of high-end yarns together with some more economical yarns, or even stash yarns you already have on hand.

Troika Scarf is a free online pattern valued at $5.00. If you like this pattern, please support the continued development of new HeartStrings knitting designs by making a donation or by purchasing any of the for-sale patterns. Suggestions for other HeartStrings patterns using the Troika method of changing yarns are Easy Asymmetry Wrap and Troika Wrap-around Faroese Shawl.

Yarn and Needles

For a scarf sized approximately 12" wide by 40" long plus fringe, allow 1 skein each of 3 different yarns in sport weight to chunky, approximately 100 to 120 yards each.

This pattern adapts easily to longer and wider versions just by starting with more stitches and knitting more rows. Allow additional yarn if you are making a larger scarf or stole.

A mixture of weights is fine. For lots of color and textural interaction, choose your yarns in a harmonious color scheme, each in a different texture. For example nubby or glitzy (textured loop), shiny and smooth (ribbon, viscose, or chenille), and fuzzy (mohair or fake fur). Check your yarn stash or shop odd-ball sales. Remember that finer yarns can be held together and used as one.
