Pattern - Bias Garter Stitch Scarf

Finished size is approximately 155 x 18 cm (60" x 7").
Requires 125 metres (137 yards) of yarn and 8 mm (US 11) needles.

The pattern begins at one corner and increases on both ends of the knitting until the width is achieved. This makes a triangular piece. Knitting then continues by increasing on one edge only (hint: mark this edge with a loop of scrap yarn), while decreasing on the other edge until the length is achieved. The finishing triangular section is made by continuing the knitting and decreasing at both edges until only one stitch is left.
