I love this pattern..it's so easy and fun to do! It's done with shortrows.
Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf (http://douma.net/Karen/knitting/Accessory-Scarves/Multidirectional_Diagonal_Scarf.htm)
The yarn is Caron Simply Soft Shadows (http://www.caron.com/color_cards/cc_ssshadows.html) in Dark Moss. That photo color on their website is so awful! It's a beautiful deep green mix.

It's probably a hell of a lot cheaper. Of course it's acrylic, but it IS very, very soft! Not crappy acrylic at all. :teehee:

I know! Strangely it almost seems to be following the color of the yarn per triangle, but not quite perfect. I'm sure it depends on width of the scarf in the first place.

Thanks to all!

That's gorgeous Jan! I love the colors. Is it an easy pattern? It looks a little complex to me, but I am a newbie of sorts! :oops: Very pretty. I'll check it out!

It's VERY easy! The second triangle starts the pattern that follows through the whole scarf. After a few rows you don't even need to look at the pattern anymore. It's that easy!

That doesn't sound too bad. I'll have to give it a try ~ I printed it out and put it in my "Projects to Do" folder. I decided to start one and keep track of things I want to knit in one place. I bought an accordian-type folder that has tabs and labled them according to type of projects ~ scarves, socks, etc. and put things I want to do in there. Then I don't reprint things or put them somewhere and forget where they are! I'm good at that. :oops:

Very nice. It's good to see what the green one looks like. I have a WIP with the Pearl Frost. I was going to do a scarf similar to this, but I had trouble with it. My pattern was here: http://magknits.com/Sept05/patterns/multi.htm

Thank you! It was a fun pattern. I still need to get more yarn. Just not enough time lately and with my luck it'll be a different dye lot. At least I enjoyed learning a new thing. :teehee:

Hey Jan--it's yummy looking and I am putting on my after-Christmas list too!! That is growing by leaps and bounds, and I'll be glad to be able to do some just cause it's there instead of "have-to" knitting!! :heart:

I've been playing with a similar pattern from the book "Modular Knits". It's a nice change after all my boring christmas knitting!
