Pennant is a long, slender triangle with multiple keyholes, and can be worn in several ways. Drape it around your shoulders as a light wrap or go twice around your neck for a cozy scarf. It is completely reversible.

Construction begins at the point and gradually increases, so it is easily modified to the length that’s perfect for you. An I-cord edging is worked on both sides as you go for a finished look. Once you get past the few minutes of the set-up, it is very mindless until you reach the keyholes.

The sample was knit in a merino/silk/linen blend that is great for warming your shoulders on cool summer evenings.

If you need to resize or want to work with a different weight/gauge, you can just start your keyholes sooner or later and end up with a length that works for you. (Any changes may result in meterage differences.) The number of keyholes can be changed as well if desired. My testers found it to be a great stash-buster for using up leftovers! Ends are easily hidden in the I-cord edges.

Finished measurements: approximately 152.5 cm long and 45.5 cm wide at widest point

Gauge: 20 stitches and 32 rows to 10 cm of lightly blocked garter stitch

Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.

If ‘knitting designer’ had been one of the job choices for those aptitude tests they give you in high school, I wouldn’t have spent so many years trying to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up. My best subject in high school was math; my best classes in college were logic, drawing, and a commercial art class. After careers in computer programming/analysis and child-rearing, knit design snuck up on me, but I think it’s the perfect use of my odd skill set! I love every step of the process, from figuring out how to actually make what I’ve envisioned to putting the finishing touches on a pattern, not to mention all the knitting that comes in between!

I also love reading and hiking and spending time on Brier Island in Nova Scotia every summer.
