Originally published in the Nov/Dec 2016 issue of PieceWork magazine, this pattern now also is available on Ravelry.

Hana means blossom in Japanese, and this version of Ostrich Plume lace reminds me of clusters of blossoms. The scarf was designed with alternating open and solid areas to show off the beauty of the tweedy silk Habu yarn from a Japanese mill. The lace is easy to memorize, and it begins and ends with symmetrically shaped scallops that can be beaded.
Designed for lace weight silk yarn, the scarf size can be customized, and it also can be knit in a variety of other lace, fingering, and DK weight yarns.
