Takenoko - Shawl and Scarf
Description from the Patternfish.com pattern page (http://www.patternfish.com/patterns/4641):
This stitch pattern reminded Matthews of bamboo shoots, hence the name, “Takenoko”, which is the Japanese word for “baby bamboo”. Instructions are given for a scarf and a rectangular wrap/shawl. Note that the yarn amounts do not include enough to swatch-– the scarf, which uses all of one ball of Sekku, would work well as a swatch. The instructions are beautiful, clear, elegant and cleanly laid out. And the lace pattern delights us-- so disciplined and yet pretty, in a distinctly Oriental way.
This pattern has the lace pattern charted in addition to written directions for both the scarf and shawl versions.
