"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

The Big Old Bias Knit Scarf elevates basic garter stitch with a refined simplicity. Knitting on the bias, or knitting diagonally, involves increasing on one edge of your work while decreasing at the same rate on the other edge. The end result is a beginner-friendly project that looks incredibly clean and well put together. This particular pattern is a great way to use up yarn ends. All you need to know in order to create this fun scarf is how to knit, make one right, and knit two together. To add a bit of whimsy, add some tassels and you'll have a beautiful free scarf knitting pattern you'll never want to take off!

Sorry - confused here - I've tried and tried to start this - that wyif adds a stitch - row 1 - and nothing in the rest of the row takes that away. SO - every time I knit a row 1, I add a stitch. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong. Pleeeeease??? I have the perfect striping yarn, needles, and the want-to. -/

Hi rainfairy! The reason you slip the first stitch in row 1 with the yarn in front is for a clean, slipped-stitch edge, not to create a new stitch. So, after you've slipped the stitch, you can go ahead and move the yarn back to the back of your work, as if to knit. This should eliminate the extra stitch on that row. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

You are doing your slip the stitch with yarn in front incorrectly. With the yarn in front of the stitch, go into the first stitch purlwise and simply slip it from left to right, with the stitch on the right needle, simply move the yarn from front to back, do not bring the yarn over the needle, simply move it from front to back between the needles and work the rest of the row from there.

"This scarf basically knits itself" Really? So if I leave the needles and yarn on the table I'll have a scarf tomorrow? What a stupid description.

Wow, what a cool pattern. I've attempted a bias-knit scarf before, but I ended up abandoning it because it was a solid color and just kind of boring. This adds some spice!

The color work on this is gorgeous, and I love how simple it is while looking complex )

Wow, I just LOVE these colors. They're so playful and fun! And I could picture this scarf going with a variety of coats.

I love the look of this scarf. It is a good stash buster and you can use any combination of colors. Simple pattern which will work up quickly. I like the addition of the tassels as well. They add something extra with all those colors to show off the color combinations. This is on my list. Also good for gifts and charity knitting as well. Thank you.

I like the clean lines and the art deco look of this easy to make knit scarf. It would certainly blend in well here in South Beach with all the different fashion looks. As I am looking over the scarf I see some familiar colors also. It uses several of the colors of our Miami Dolphins football team.
