Pattern description from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts: “This scarf is a simple right-angle triangle knit on the bias. It can be worn around the neck or on the head, or it can be used to wrap a small gift. Because it doesn’t take much yarn, this project is an excellent way to use luxurious yarns like fine cashmere without breaking the bank. On the other hand, it can easily be adapted to shawl size if you continue to increase at the end of each row until you have reached your desired width. I have one of these scarves in cotton and one in cashmere, so whatever the season, I can put one on and add color and just the right amount of warmth to my day.”
