This scarf is crocheted in alpacka yarn and is built up by squares and some half squares.
I have made each square in one color but it would of course be possible to alternate the color scheme on the squares and the scarf in endless ways.
Finished size of the scarf is 130 x 65 cm but you can easily adjust the size of it by adding or removing rows.
The yarn used in this pattern was sponsored by Järbo Garn.

After you made all your squares it’s time for the joining. This will go pretty quick since it is done row by row in a zig-zag pattern. Joining is done by making sc’s in the blo on the wrong side of the squares. This will give an almost invisible join and flat look from the right side.
The scarf has 15 rows, where row 1 has 1 square and row 14 has 14 squares. Row 15 is the longest and is built up by the 15 half squares. Start joining at the peak of the scarf (row 1 and 2) and work your way from right to left, row by row, to the upper edge. The joining should be done with the same color as on the row of squares below the joining to get an invisible join. I have used a contrasting color for the joining in the images just to make it easier to see what it looks like.
Colors by row 1-15: green, dark green, dark blue, blue, purple, pink, natural, green, dark green, dark blue, blue, purple, pink, natural, green.
Here we go!
Place the two squares to be joined with the right side against each other (image 1).
Start by making 1 sc in the corner chains of both squares (image 2).
Make 1 sc through each of the 13 dc’s along the side of the squares (BLO!) (image 3).
Finish the joining by making 1 sc in the other corner chains of the two squares (image 4).
Now your two first squares are joined. Images below shows how the result looks on the wrong side (image 5) and right side (image 6).
Now put the next square in place (image 7) and continue to join in the same way as before (image 8).
When you have worked your way through a couple of rows your work will look as in the image below (image 9).
Start again in the ch sp at the peak of the rightmost joined half square.
Make 2 sc in first ch sp to the right of the sc from last round. 1 hdc in the sc from last round continue by making 1 hdc in each dc and 2 hdc in each ch-2 sp from last round, finish the round by making 1 hdc in last sc and make 2 sc in last ch sp.
Fasten off and weave in all ends!
If you want a perfect triangle shaped scarf you will need to block the scarf, otherwise it’s ready to use!
