Diamond Basketwork Scarf

This scarf took me about a week to knit, so you now know I’m a slow knitter.  I came up with the pattern on my own, so I’m rather proud.  I guess there’s nothing new or original about it but, as a beginner, I was pleased that I could come up with a pattern without any help.

There are no complicated instructions so the pattern is suitable for all skill levels.
