This easy slip stitch design reminds me of lovely Greek symbols, which is how the name evolved. Just slip stitches instead of knitting them to form these lovely shapes.

The construction of this luxurious scarf is similar to the popular Taj Rectangle Shawl published in 2015, but easier to knit. You start on one end, working a center increase triangle, then make a matching identical one. Join them tip to tip, and seamlessly work down one side then the other.
The resulting scarf is a work of art.
