A kaju katli is a very tasty Indian diamond shaped sweet meat made from cashew nuts (kaju, in hindi). This scarf has been inspired by that delicacy. (Pronunciation : ‘ka-joo cut-lee)
The scarf is worked sideways, and after the first few lines, the pattern goes diagonally. The increases are evenly worked on both sides, till you reach your desired width.

The gauge is not critical as both width and length of the scarf are variable, but the designer achieved a gauge of approx 4 diamond st x 2 rows in pattern = 2”.

This pattern is fairly easy, but has been marked an Advanced beginner or Intermediate Skill Level.

The scarf is worked sideways, and after the first few lines, the pattern goes diagonally.
