“Bias” Knit Scarf


A pattern for you all on this lovely Wednesday!

Two size 9 (5.5 mm) straight needles
Three skeins of Koigu (I used two yellow and one varigated green), I got it at Purl

How to ‘knit on the bias’:
Cast on three stitches.
Next row: Increase by one, p1, k1, p1, increase one.
For each subsequent row, increase by one stitch at the beginning and end of the row and continue in k1, p1 rib for all stitches in between. Continue in this pattern (your work will be a triangle) until the side of the triangle is as wide as you would like the scarf to be.
Next row: *knit 2 together, continue in k1, p1 rib to the end, increase by one stitch.
Next row: increase by one, continue in k1, p1 rib until two stitches from the end of the row, then knit 2 together.*
repeat pattern between *s, decreasing by one on one edge and increasing by one on the other edge, for the length of the scarf.
Finishing the last corner: instead of increasing on one edge, start knitting 2 together at each end of each row, continuing in k1, p1 rib, until only three stitches remain. slip one, k2tog, pass slipped st over.

My color pattern:
27 rows yellow, 13 varigated green.

Weave in ends from color changes, add fringe, and voila!
