Sock yarn scarf

This scarf is my mom's Christmas present, knit on the diagonal. You start by increasing one stitch at the start of every row until it's as wide as you want. Then, you alternate rows of regular knitting, and rows with an increase at the start and a decrease at the end. When it's as long as you want, you end by decreasing by one stitch at the end of every row. It was knit with yarn meant for socks. Thin and slippery yarn, but available in cool colors, and I like the end result. I don't think this will be the last sock yarn scarf I make. Yarn: Regia Bamboo, 45% bamboo, 40% wool, %15 polyamide.
