The Big Old Bias Knit Scarf is a beginner-friendly knitting pattern. It’s perfect for experienced knitters looking for a palette cleanser (and a way to use up those yarn ends), but it’s also good for beginners who want to make something that looks super elegant.

This is a great pattern for learning to knit on the bias, a.k.a. knitting diagonally. While it’s just a matter of increasing on one edge of your work while decreasing at the same rate on the other edge, it elevates something like basic garter stitch with such simplicity. You can make this scarf as long or as short as you want too!
