But this time I've made it smaller and started in the middle with a mitered diamond and knit outwards from either side of it.
I used a crochet cast on again, because it is just so much easier to get proper tension and because later I am going to want live stitches to knit from where I began.
I'd much rather decrease than increase, which is why I decided to construct this scarf in this manner. One could just as easily start at one end of the scarf, increase until time to make the big mitered square center, and then pick up stitches from the other side of the square and decrease to the end. Whichever way makes you happiest, I always say.
