Scarf

Cast on 432 st using TWO US 13 (9.00) needles. This is important to ensure that the edge of the scarf does not bunch up. Change to smaller needles. Join and continue to work in rounds. Purl 1 round. While working this round place markers at the beginning of the round and 4 more markers to mark the beginning and the end of the mitered corner repeats.
P 60 sts, pm, p 84, pm, p 132, pm, p 84, pm, p 72
Now work lace pattern on the long sides of the scarf and work mitered corner pattern at short ends. (See diagrams)
Round 1: repeat lace pattern 5 times, knit mitered corner pattern, repeat lace pattern 11 times, knit mitered corner, repeat lace pattern 6 times.
Work 34 rounds. Don't bind off

Finishing
Transfer the stitches to 2 long circular needles (or to several circular needles) to make sure there is enough length to hold all stitches. Block the scarf, positioning it as shown on the picture below.

After the blocking, graft the open stitches.

Have fun!
