I added a revised pattern download, which gives instructions for curved edges and also the squared off edges.

For those of you who have had problems with the abbreviations, here’s a list:

Sl1 = Slip one stitch.
Pwise = purlwise. Put needle in stitch as if to purl it.
Sl 1 pwise = Put RHN into next st on LHN as if to purl it and slip it to the RHN.
Yb = bring the working yarn to the back of your work.
Yf = bring the working yarn to the front of your work.
RHN = Right Hand Needle.
LHN = Left Hand Needle.
PM = Put or Place Marker.

Row 1 of Wrap and Turn Section for different CO’s:
CO 218 sts - Row 1: Sl1 pwise, K112, PM on LHN, Turn.
CO 254 sts - Row 1: Sl1 Pwise, K130, PM on LHN, Turn.
CO 290 sts - Row 1: Sl1 pwise, K148, Pm on LHN, Turn.

This is a quick and easy pattern to knit. It would be great for last minute gift-giving. This pattern was inspired by Abyssal. The Fan & Feather border gives a nice feminine look. The short rows are not complicated. Step by step instructions are given for the short rows. You do not have to pick up wraps with this pattern.

Gauge and size are not critical. Although, the scarf/ shawlette in the top 3 photos was made with worsted weight yarn, the last 2 photos show a scarf made with DK weight. I used the same sized needles for both.

220 ~ 250 yds are about what you will need to complete this.

If you wish to make a longer scarf / shawlette, just increase the stitch count by increments of 36sts. The Fan & Feather pattern is a multiple of 18sts. An additional 36sts will give you 2 more scallops…one on either side. If you want it even longer, keep adding 36sts to your Cast On. Of course, you will need to add more yardage.

Once you make one, it’s hard not to make another…and another. Happy Knitting…
