I made this cowl based on a free pattern on Ravelry, available here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/multidirectional-diagonal-scarf
Here is my project page on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/hmstitchbystitch/multidirectional-diagonal-scarf
I used the SKP decrease (not SSK).
Increased until cowl width was 50 st.
Did beginning triangle, then big triangle, then alternate ending triangle.
Project went very smoothly, pattern is great.
Cowl is 10 in by 20 in.
Wove the ends together.
