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.
