I started mine today, but instead of doing increases, I'm doing yarn overs.  My knitting guru pointed out that it had the same effect, and was much easier than the increase the instructions call for.  It seems to be working well so far. I'll post pictures when I have more to show.

to increase, you knit in the front of the stitch first, then- while leaving the original stitch on the left needle and leaving the new stitch on the right needle, you go into the back of the original stitch (left) and make another knit stitch. Then drop off the stitch on the left. Does that make any sense? Just be sure to keep them loose enough.

I bought the noro silk garden and am 1/3 way done. Will post pics of the finished project in a few days. I'm hoping it blocks up as nice as knitoramamomma's! It might be a gift for my mother-in-law for xmas.

I've been tempted by this pattern for awhile! i love the yarn you chose, it looks really even. Did you block it? I just knit up a little swatch to see how the pattern works- here's what I came up with: (used Noro Kureyon, limited leftovers  Undecided) I think it looks better a little wider...

How wide is yours?

Thank you so much for sharing this! I never really understood the point or how to do short rows...I ran right our for some yarn this morning and i am making a "skinny" scarf with pink red and yellow triangles.
Thanks again!

I received these directions from my knitting shop and I'm a very beginning knitter.  I'm not afraid of the project and understand all the basics like inc and even the ssk.  What I don't get is, when I get to the "short row sections", literally, what to I do then?  Cast off the first section?  The knit store owner showed me vaguely but I don't remember.  I remember something about picking up a stitch, but that's it LOL
Please help, I'm so thrilled I actually found a thread on a message board that pertained to this exact scarf!
Thanks in advance,

Ok, you dont cast anything off....after the initial cast on section where you decide how wide it will be, you start the short row section which means you end up starting the short row section with your triangle to the left...you will be starting  at the bottom right side...the "lower" side and working your way up.  Thats when you start the first short row section and gradually the triangle will grow up that right side.  Then when you get to the last ssk and you turn....there will be the corner for the next short row section and you do it all over again.  Every time you start a new short row section, it will begin at the lowest edge.  Took me a couple of times to get that for some reason!  I am just about finished with my second one so if you have any other questions or don't understand the way I explained...just pm me.

edamame: how many skeins of Silk Garden? (In addition to width, length, needle size). I have some leftover from a sweater like object that I just finished. The yarn has spoken to me, and says it want to be a scarf... of sorts.

This is a very pretty scarf, unfortunately for a minute I thought it was a pair of knitted pants (duh!)
