This lightweight lacy scarf is a perfect accessory for in between seasons, when it’s too warm for our cozy wool cowls, and still too cool for bare skin. It features a repeating motif depicting a Japanese folding fan, known as a sensu.

It works up to around 7”/17.75 cm wide and 6’/1.83 m long after blocking and has a garter stitch border around a repeating lace panel. Adjusting the number of lace repeats could also adjust the length of the scarf, making it more customizable. The yarn chosen for this scarf features alpaca for warmth and silk for strength that adds a touch of elegance to this project. The sample is made with two skeins of Earth Treasures Yarn: Superfine Airy 3-ply (80% alpaca, 20% soysilk, 210 yards/192 meters) in color Thunderhead (grey).

The pattern calls for a total of 420 yards/384 meters of fingering weight yarn and US size 3/3.25mm needles, or size to obtain gauge: 24 sts/32 rows - 4”/10cm in Stockinette stitch blocked. The pattern uses a combination of written and charted instruction.
