This scarf was inspired by fiddlehead ferns. It is knit sideways in an elongated triangle, with the fiddleheads CROCHETED as you go. There is an increase and decrease chart available on Google Docs (linked in pdf pattern) if you need it, but I think the instructions are pretty clear, thanks mostly to my wonderful testers nickersr and Lousquared! There is a photo tutorial for working the fiddleheads as well.
Gauge for this scarf is not really important. It can easily be lengthened by adding more repeats to the center section.
