I am working on the Miter Square Scarf Knitting Pattern which is done all in one piece. I finished the first square and cast on the amount of stitches asked for and now I am stuck. It says to repeat the previous rows, but for some reason I cannot visualize how to do this. Does anyone know of a video that shows starting the second square that will be attached to the first? I did an internet search, but was unable to find anything. Any help is greatly appreciated! http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/scarfmiter.htm
I did all the rows and cast on the 22 stitches and cannot get mind around how to start knitting.

I've never knit this scarf but...when you've finished the first square you should have 1loop on your needle, then you need to pick up 20 stitches along the finished square and then cast on 22 stitches (I believe these will be the side of the square) - for a total of 42 stitches on your needle. Then start with row 1 all over again (ignoring your first completed square).

Hope this helps.

"Row 41: k3tog- 1 sts remains. Do not fasten off.
With RS facing, pick up 20 sts along top edge. Using the Cable Cast On, CO 22 sts."

In other words,
when you have decreased down to just one stitch on your needle,
you first pick up 20 stitches along the top edge of the square,
then you cast on 22 stitches = 43 stitches again to begin the next square.

A word of caution. Your completed scarf will probably not look like mitered squares but more resemble mitered rectangles. This has nothing to do with your knitting skills! It's the nature of scarves and how they're used. If you pull the opposing sides of a knitted (knit stitch) square, it will look like a rectangle. Scarves get pulled; it's the nature of them. http://www.ravelry.com/projects/JessicaJean/easy-mitered-ruffle-scarf
