k2tog = knit two together
yo = yarn over


Cast on 54. Join to knit in the round. Divide stitches with 18 stitches each on three double pointed needles or 27 stitches each side for a magic loop. Repeat the round directions across the round.

Rnds 1 and 2: k
Rnd 3: k2tog three times, (yo, k1) six times, k2tog three times
Rnd 4: p
Repeat rounds 1 – 4  until the scarf measures 60″ or desired length.  Cast off with a rnd 4. Weave in ends.

  1. Beautiful .. thanks for the pattern.

  2. You share your beautiful patterns with us and “I thank you”.
    Now, I would like to share something from my experience of making many shawls/lapghans for nursing homes.
    I always add a pocket or two (sewn on separately) for tissues, etc. Because lapghans tend to slip, I add a removable cord on each side that can be tied to arms of chair, if needed. And, don’t forget the men! Make some in manly colors. If you make a shawl big enough, it can be an afghan. Women get cold shoulders, men get cold legs and feet. These ideas came from the recipients. Hope they help. Thanks again for a great site!!

    • What wonderful ideas. Thank you for sharing. I’m one of the elderly that you speak of. I’m still at home but can no longer walk. I still enjoy doing volunteer knitting. I have had a terrible time finding a lap cover. Maybe I’ll make myself one with pockets. Best Wishes Dorothy

  3. I enjoy your page very much and make my family your
    scarves. They love them Thank y0u

  4. Feather and Fan is the pattern my mom used to make a sweet carriage blanket when my son was on the way, 43 years ago. Now I have a name for it, and the pattern too. Thanks so much for your excellent site.
