Pattern Description:

The ends of this unique scarf are characterized by a pattern of intertwining branches. The branches connect an elegant arrangement of downward flowing leaves and flower buds. This beautiful panel is followed by an open work section with a delicate but strong vertical element that grounds the flowing scarf end like the trunk of the cherry tree.

My inspiration for this design was a recent trip through Japan during cherry blossom season. I was taken by the grace and softness of the tree branches and flowing leaves, which I attempted to preserve in this new pattern.

This pattern uses only basic knit or purl return rows. The instructions include both a written pattern and charts for all types of knitters.
