FO: Japanese Feather Scarf
I wanted to make the stole but I would have been a tad short on yarn. I was really disappointing to find that the yarn (50/50 mohair/acrylic) was a wee bit scratchy; the soft squishiness of it was misleading! But it was intended as a gift for my MIL and I will give it to her anyway as she typically wears such scarves over turtle necks or light jackets.

Pattern:
Japanese Feather Stole or Scarf

I'm helping!


I added these little blue beads up the sides for a bit of sparkle

Oh wow! What a beeeautiful pattern! And your yarn is delightful! Great work!!!

I like your scarf so much...I ran right over to Rav and bought the pattern! Thanks for the link! I printed the pdf...and I'm very happy that it states how much yarn you will need for the stole, or for the scarf!

Very happy here!

I have 3 yarns in my Stash that I've PAIRED with this pattern.

This one, this one, and this one!

The Elann Kaido Lame will be a stole. I think I'll start with the stole for summer!
The other two will be scarves. I love the SMOKE color best!

Wow, that's just lovely. Beautiful yarn. Maybe it will be less scratchy after wearing and washing.
