A triangular scarf, knit from the top left corner and worked diagonally to the lower right edge. A simple combination of knit and purl stitches mimics plaid knit on the bias, making for a unique and genderless accessory that’s easy enough for a beginner to knit, and mindless knitting for a more seasoned knitter. As the colour fades out in the gradient, the pattern will become more sparse. The pattern also contains instructions for adjusting the placement of the second texture, should your gradient differ from the one shown.

Note About Substituting Yarns
This pattern used almost the entire yardage of the ball.
 If substituting another yarn, it should be a DK weight yarn that drapes well, with a suggested gauge of 22 sts = 4”/10cm. 
It would also look fantastic in a semi-solid or tonal yarn, such as those dyed by The Blue Brick.

Techniques Used
Knit, Purl, Basic Increases
