:: scarfette ::

Somewhat two months ago I made this simple yet lacy and saucy scarf/shawl, named it Bear Claw Scarfette. It was really fun to knit and a great way to practice your lace skills. Here is a pattern for your enjoyment folks, it may not be right for the season, but lace yarn nowadays really is much more sophisticated and all you can indulge in! My new craving is Voile de la mer, Seaweed yarn with Seacell fibers and silk in it! Just look at those colors!!!

For this particular scarfette is 45" length with the borders. Best if you have 100gr of a laceweight/fingering yarn, I had used only 64 gr for mine, hence I wish it was just a bit longer.

Materials: 2 (50gr) skeins of Habu Kinari (75% merino wool, 30% silk);270 yards / 50 grams
Needle: 2.75mm straight needle and 2.75mm double pointed needles.

Start work by provisionally casting on 38 sts.
And immediately start working the lace chart.
Lace chart repeat consists of 63 rows. All sts on the WS are worked as they appear: K the knit sts and P the purl sts.
Work the repeats as much as you like to obtain desired length.
End your scarfette by knitting only half of the main lace chart. Do not bind off, simply put your sts on a needle holder.

Using provisional method and shorter needles cast on 5 sts. And start working the chart, the last stitch worked the following way:
Slip stitch, pick up the stitch through the last stitch of the body of the scarf, psso. *Please see chart legend below.
All sts on the WS are worked as they appear: K the knit sts and P the purl sts.
Do not bind off, unravel carefully your provisional CO egdes and graft your borders with a darning needle to join or you can use a three-needle bind off technique.

On the chart here is not shown black dot, which is a purl stitch. Sorry for the inconvienience.

Beautiful scarf -- thank you so much for sharing the pattern! I have a flax-silk laceweight blend on order from Fleece Artist/Handmaiden, and I think your pattern would be perfect for it. Lovely work!

That is a beautiful pattern; thanks so much for sharing the pattern. My holiday gift selections are shaping up quite nicely.

Those colors in the Tilli Thomas are very exciting! See, this is why the ancestors won''t let me hit the lottery––I would "yarn out" so BAD…!

In the key of stitches, I think you have not identified the stitch that is represented by a solid dot. Or am I reading this wrong?

Dj said...

The black dot is not identified. However, in looking at the picture it looks like it should be a purl stitch.

Is this pattern from Romantisk Country Strikke, Edited by Olivia Editors, Denmark? I am unsure of some of your charting and would like to get the book for clarification. If so, you should have given them credit.

Hello, I have designed this pattern up myself using a stitch pattern from a stitch guide and put the chart up together, I never heard of that book nor as a designer I would ever do such a thing claiming someone''s pattern as my own.

I love the Bear Claw Scarfette pattern, however, I find that the chart shows only sts 14 thru 38.
I don't know how to find the full chart for this pattern. Or--what does one do for these sts.
thank you for your help
