Miter Me This Chic Knit Scarf

Miter Me This is a bright, colorful scarf made up of mitered square that are artfully arranged in three columns from the bottom up. The secret to mitered squares is that decreases in each row cause the stitches to appear at right angles from each other - without any additional shaping! Wearing this scarf will make an ordinary day seem special, so choose your funky or neutral color palette and give this style a try. 

NotesNOTE
Scarf is worked in 3 columns of mitered squares, each worked from the bottom up. The column of large squares is worked first, then the medium, then the small.

Wow. This is so elegant and chic. Love the colors used here, perfect when worn over blue jeans and denim jacket. This is a knit project but I can also do a crochet version of this. Lovely! Can't wait to make my crochet version of this.
