New Pattern: Vintage Trellis and Fan Scarf

This scarf reminds me of “Little Women” or Jane Austen; it’s a modern twist on a vintage look.
And I mean “twist” literally, as the diamond garter pattern in the main portion of the scarf is formed with twist stitches, directions for which are given in the pattern.
This scarf is long and wide and cozy, even though DK weight yarn is used.  That's 7.5" x 84" of warm, luxurious, cuddly scarfness.  (Scarfability?  No, that's sounds like something you'd chow down on.  Never mind.)



It’s knit in two pieces so that the lace and fan edges are pointing the same way. You then use 3-needle bind-off (the easiest) or Kitchener/grafting to join the two pieces.


I used 6 skeins of Colinette Cadenza yarn in the colorway “Apricot Smoothie” for the scarf pictured, because that’s what I had in my stash.




Although this yarn has been discontinued, a perfect substitute would be Hearthside Fibers Extravagance. The bouncy, soft, cushy natures of these two yarns are quite similar, and Extravagance comes in some gorgeous colors. (You’ll need 3 skeins of Extravagance, but you should have a little left over.)
