Easy Knit Kerchief Pattern

I'm a beginner at knitting, and I'm attempting to figure out my notes here. Please comment below if you see a mistake. If you're a beginner, I've linked the stitch abbreviation "glossary" to youtube videos. If you need help in casting on and casting off, check out the rest of The Knit Witch's videos. In the comments on the one for SSK someone asked how it was different from k2tog, this kerchief is an excellent example, because I tried just k2tog first, and it looked all wrong. It's the way the decreases lean, one half looked nicely knit, the other half the stitches looked twisted. 
I used size 8 needles,a size G crochet hook, and worsted weight cotton, Peaches & Creme in the Fiesta Ombre.

Bind off, insert crochet hook into the last loop, and chain 60, then slip stitch back up the chain, and sc loosely along the sides of the triangle, not the long edge (or hypotenuse), when you reach the top of the other side, chain 60, slip stitch back up the chain, break off yarn, and weave in ends. The little image below shows where to do the crocheted edging.

I actually worked mine off a graph I drew. Here's two versions, the color-coded one I used, and a plain graph. Notice that the pattern has one more row then the graph.. that's because when I finished the graph, I decided I needed another row. On the color coding, salmon is purl, purple is yo, I left the k2tog white, but marked the ssk with green so I could count them easily.
And here's a blank graph if you want to design your own.
