The Japanese Feathers Scarf is Finished – Free Scarf Pattern

April 4, 2012 § 6 Comments

Last weekend I washed and blocked the Japanese Feathers Scarf I’ve been working on. These flexible, superfine blocking wires make it so much easier than when I blocked the shawl with pins alone.

Anyway here’s the finished article.

I showed it to my daughter on a FaceTime call the other day and she likes it so it should be winging it’s way to the northern hemisphere sometime soon.

Free Scarf Pattern

I used a 2ply 100% Italian Merino Yarn called Ella Rae and 4.5mm needles.

I got the pattern for the Japanese Feather Lace stitch from the the Knitting Fool Website here. The stitch pattern uses multiples of 11 plus 1 but I added three knit stitches at the beginning and end and used 6 repeats. So I cast on 73 stitches.
So my pattern reads:
Row 1 knit
Row 2 knit
Row 3 knit
Rows 4 to 32 knit 3 – follow the lace pattern here – knit 3.
Repeat the last 28 rows until your scarf is the desired length then knit 3 plain rows.

    It’s lovely, and what a nice momma you are to send it to your daughter. Is it a surprise? My sister knitted me a shawl similar to that that I wore with my formal gown to my high school prom in 1964. I had it for years and years, and I just realized that I don’t know what happened to it…… 8-|

    Gorgeous. It is really pretty and feminine looking
    I looked at the Japanese Feather stitch and I don’t know what “ssk” stands for. Can you tell me? thanks!! Maybe someday I will try this.

    Hello Munaiba,
    That is absolutely beautiful, and I am going to “attempt” a similar one. I say similar as I’m not a very good knitter and goodness knows what it will turn out like!!
    Could you tell me though, what the finished measurement was, please?
    Enjoy your blog.

      Hi Joan
      Good luck with the scarf. I had to undo it a fair bit to begin with but when I concentrated and had the pattern in my head it was quite easy. When it was blocked the scarf measured 38cm wide and 135 cm long.
