I'm looking for a scarf pattern where the ends of the scarf are pointed, rather than square, and pointed like a right-angled triangle, rather than an arrow shape (I really hope that's clear, I spent ages trying to make a diagram using the symbols on my keyboard but failed!)

I'm sure this kind of thing should be easy in theory  Undecided  just increasing each row, right? As an inexperienced crochet-er, I'm uneasy about starting something without a pattern, especially since I'm working towards a swap deadline again. Can anyone help me out?

PS- it's not going to be so much of scarf, as a long tentacle  Grin I'll post pictures when I'm done if the project turns out successful!

i'd just chain as long as you want it then crochet and just decrease at each end

yeah, like that- if your picture is of the whole scarf, laid out horizontally, and not just one end Tongue this is so much more complex that it should be, lol, here's my version-

l l   -middle of scarf
l l
l l
l l
l l
l l
l/  - one end of scarf  Grin


the thing I'm having trouble with is getting started- cos if it's pointed at both ends, I need to start off by increasing, then do the straight bit in the middle, then decrease at the other end, right?

yes, that would work, increase up to your desired width, then go straight for as long as your want, then start decreasing

I agree, increases are the answer here. To get that shape you just have to remember to keep your increases all on the same side.
