Fingering Weight Feather and Fan

I never thought I'd like knitting with small needles and fine yarn as much as I do...because, you know, it takes longer to finish a project!  But I love how lightweight and warm the projects turn out!  And this scarf is no exception...long and warm without being heavy.  A wardrobe staple in basic blacks and greys without being boring.  A sock yarn finish that isn't for the feet!




Simple Feather & Fan Scarf
Yarn:  Patons Kroy Socks FX, color #57044 Clay Colors
approx 2 1/2 skeins:  50g/166yds each
Needles:  size 4
(approx 5" wide and 72" long after blocking)


Because I know you want to make one too, here's the super simple pattern...


Simple Feather & Fan Scarf
by Staci~~snippetsandstash.blogspot.com

Cast on 38 stitches.

Row 1:  (RS) Knit.

Row 2:  (WS) Purl.

Row 3:  K1, *[k2tog] 3 times, [yo, k1] 6 times, [k2tog] 3 times; repeat from * once more, k1.

Row 4:  Knit.

Repeat rows 1-4 until scarf reaches desired length.  Knit rows 1 and 2 once more.  Bind off.  I used the sewn bind off because it's nearly invisible.  Weave in all ends and block.

I think I'd get bored doing so many rows, but the result is so gorgeous! I love how it will be so lightweight.

I love it! I need a scarf in those colors so this will be perfect. I think it will be a great one to take along while we are moving. I'll go out and get the yarn tomorrow. Did you get this one at Michael's or JoAnn's? Thanks for the pattern and Happy New Year!

Gorgeous scarf, Staci! Love the yarn you chose. I like knitting with sock yarn and small needles too, but you are right, it does take forever! :)
