Named for the Japanese version of the Amaryllis that in the Japanese Flower language of Hanakotoba means shy, this scarf was inspired by a book of Japanese stitch patterns and is loosely based on a previous pattern of mine Blowsey Ruffles, but with more lace and more ruffles!
This pattern is quite challenging with lace on RS and WS rows, but this is offset by working in larger yarn and needles.
Knitted in two halves and grafted or three needle bound off at the centre, the scarf can be as long or as short as you wish. Just add more yarn!
The perfect gift knitting because although it is complicated lace, the fact that it is knitted in heavier yarn means that it grows quickly!

The preview of the new issue should be up on October 1st.
Issue goes live the following week
