The Abella Triangular Scarf is not only stylish and REVERSIBLE, but it’s also a great (mostly mindless) project that you can crochet when you’re needing to decompress after a long, stressful day at work. You can also make it any custom width and use any yarn weight you desire!
I used Lion Brand Yarn Wool Ease Thick & Quick for the scarf in the photos and it took less than 1.5 balls! It also took less than 2 hours to crochet!!! SO, less than 2 hours, less than 2 balls… that’s a Win, Win in my book! 😀

- Although I used Lion Brand Thick & Quick (a super bulky/6 weight yarn) for my scarf, you can use your favorite weight yarn by following these notes:
- Choose your favorite yarn, check the yarn label to see what crochet hook size the manufacturer suggests and then grab a hook that is 1 to 2 sizes larger than what’s suggested (depending on the amount of drape you want your scarf to have). This is the rule of thumb I like to use to achieve the drape desired for this project (you can use a larger hook if you’d like more drape). For example, Lion Brand Wool Ease is a favorite light worsted/4 weight yarn of mine. The yarn label suggests a J/10/6.00mm crochet hook so I used a 7mm crochet hook instead.

Row 1 (RS): Ch 2, work 2 sl sts into the FLO of the 1st ch. (2 sts) See photos below.
Row 2: Ch 1, Turn, BLO sl st in each st across. (2 sts)
Row 3: Ch 2, Turn, FLO sl st in the 2nd ch from your hook, FLO sl st in each st across. (3 sts) *Each Row 3 rep increases your st count by 1. Tip: Place a SM in the last st of every odd row rep to help keep that last st from hiding after you turn. This will take the guess work out of where you need to work the first st in each even numbered rows. Sometimes in sl st crochet the last st of the row likes to hide. 😉
Row 4: Ch 1, Turn, BLO sl st in each st across. (3 sts)
Rep Rows 3 – 4, ending w/ a Row 3 rep, until scarf measures at least 25″ from Row 1. If you’d like a scarf that’s wider than 50″, keep repeating Rows 3 -4 until it’s half the width you’d like your scarf to be. Make sure to end with a Row 3 rep. The short edge of my scarf measures approximately 15″ at this point (this measurement is the width of the last row you worked). After your scarf has reached half the overall width you’d like the finished size to be, continue to Decreasing, below.
Important: Make sure you ended with a Row 3 repeat before continuing to the first decrease row.
Decrease Row 1: Ch 1, Turn, BLO sl st in each st across to the last st, skip the last st. (st count decreases by 1 st)
(Non- Decrease) Row 2: Ch 1, Turn, FLO sl st in each st across.
Rep Rows 1 – 2 until you have 1 stitch remaining.
Fasten off and weave in ends. Click HERE to add tassels to your scarf.
