I'm trying to learn a few new stitches right now, so I decided to give a corner-start scarf a go. I got the basic instructions for corner start from this pattern here:

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/corner-start-afghan

I actually looked at a few different blogs before using this pattern. The pictures are slightly blurry, but I found this explanation the easiest to use because it showed the shape of things before you matched corners, and that was a huge help for me.

The scarf is made from mystery yarn and an L-hook, it hits just above my waistband and fits very comfortably into my jacket. I think the yarn is a wool blend.

Getting started was the hardest part; once I made the first few rows, this thing went quick.

Thank you! The yarn has little flecks of black and tan bits, which gives it a nice bit of interest.

I hope you like it! Like I mentioned, it's a bit tricky to get it started, but once you get going, it's a great, quick stitch. I like it especially because it's repetitive while still being interesting to make.

Thank you! I like that it has a similar texture to the basketweave stitch but doesn't require me to remember if I've front-posted or back-posted. I tend to lose count.

I love that stitch! Is it original? I'm always on the lookout for new stitches; one of my favorite sites is called New Stitch a Day.

I would love to take credit because it's a great stitch, but I found it on ravelry:

The pattern is technically for an afghan, but it's written so you can size to what you want to make. It's really a lovely stitch.
