A Diagonal Rectangle?
I knitted a scarf out of some hand spun 2-ply silk. One ply is dyed silk noil and the other spun from an un-dyed silk cap. I started in the lower right corner with three stitches and increased one stitch at the beginning of every row until it was the width I wanted. Then I began decreasing on one side and increasing on the other side at the beginning of each row. The result is a rectangular scarf knitted on the bias. I planned to add some knitted lace all around the edge but I liked the way it looked without it.
