Slanted Gansey scarf

This gorgeous stitch pattern might look complicated, but it's really just an easy-peasy knit-purl pattern. Nothing to it!

I think it's because it's knit on the bias (increases along one edge and decreases along the other edge), that give the stitch pattern its dramatic dragon-scale appearance.

Oh, and another thing ... it's reversible!
