Multidirectional Scarf Cont.

The pattern has been a bit hard to figure out. It could have used a few more details. When you get to the end of the 2nd triangle (the pink one in the photo), finish on an even numbered row. Don't knit back. Switch colors, and start the short rows all over again.

When I was halfway done with the pink I realized I'd dropped a stitch at the beginning of the pink section. I had no luck trying to retrieve it, so I had to frog it and start the pink section all over again. Now I'm on to the third color.

Also, I used size 2 needles because they are what I had on hand. But it would have been much easier on size 6 or 7 needles.

Multidirectional Scarf

My friend MEC is making a scarf like this. I'm sorely tempted to try it as well, even if I can't sell it, since it's not my own design. But still, the technique might be useful for other things, like a vest or a tote bag.
