I love cute pins. This pattern is designed to show off YOUR favourite pins and use only one, small ball of lovely, soft cashmere. You get three choices of shape for your neckerchief in #PinGame, all created with simplicity in mind. I want this to be a chill-out knit, something you can create on the go; something that will use a small amount of precious yarn; and something that will be perfect for whipping out a last-minute gift for someone!

PinGame gives you three shape choices: Diamond, Triangle, and Crescent. All three begin with a garter tab CO and increase in various ways from there. Each ends with a different, simple lacy edging.
The Diamond is a shape that really does best with a complementary pin. Fold it in half and wrap it around your neck, securing it with a pin. This double layer, up close to your skin, is soft and especially warm.
The Triangle shape is like a traditional shawl; it has a bit more length than the Diamond, and so can drape more loosely around your neck. It’s still best to wear with your favourite pin!
And the Crescent shape is the longest, but shallowest, of the shapes. This neckerchief can wrap around and drape over your shoulders. Pins are optional!
