SO, I went searching on the internet for a pattern or directions on how to knit on the bias (diagonally). Ravelry.com is a glorious source for patterns of all kinds- I can usually find what I am looking for there.
Although, this time, not so much. I did not find exactly what I was looking for. I wanted my "scarf" to be wider that what you would normally think of a "scarf" being... almost a "shawl"- but not a triangle... maybe a "wrap"- but not old-lady-looking... so I took bits and pieces of other patterns and experimented.
LOVE EXPERIMENTING!!!!... the process of creating is such a joy! It took some tweaking... the first try was not what I wanted. I adjusted. And, LOVE the end product!
I am working on an orange/brown/blue/ Autumn Leaves color scheme one right now (the collection of yarns at the top of this post). You can see a couple of other color groupings here.
It seems to me it needs a special style name. "Joseph's Amazing Technicolor Dream Scarf" or something of the like. Help me name it, will you? Post some suggestions.
