I love shawls and shawlettes and crescent-ish shaped scarves, but what I don’t like about the top-down structure is the fact that the rows get crazy long at the end.

So I started playing around with a point-to-point scarf that works the bottom border as you go. It’s admittedly a very simple pattern, but there is nothing wrong with simple things. Simple things can still possess beauty and elegance.

This pattern comes with two variations: one is a trapezoidal scarf (first picture), and the other is a shallow triangular shawlette (second picture). Both are simple patterns to remember, work up in a flash, and use only a single skein of yarn--although nothing is stopping you from making it bigger if you like!

A video tutorial of this pattern is available here courtesy of FiberSpider. He’s also got a mod of the design that incorporates the double shell border (like in the Vicki Scarf) with this design, available here. Thanks so much, FiberSpider!
