Shizuku 雫

This is my latest pattern design. Shizuku means drops or tear-drop shape in Japanese. This scarf is knit from side to side with the droplets knitted along one side. The droplets are made with short row shaping.
Tomo's Shizuku
The scarf is made with 2 skeins of Noro Kureyon, but you can substitute any yarn with the same weight. This colorful example is made by my friend, Tomo, who is also the one modeling both of the scarves. I love the colorway that she used.

This one is knit by me in the colorway 150. Noro Kureyon really softens up quite bit after a good soak with Eucalan and blocking.

Thank you for the pattern. I am just finishing Lucy Neatby's Sea Lettuce scarf, but this will be next on the needles. It has much larger 'picots' or Shizukus. Hope I am lucky. I am 70 years old and well, so really I am lucky already. Peg on Vancouver Island, Canada

I would love to win your beautiful scarf! I especially love the raindrops. Why you ask? Well I absolutely love the rain, love curling up with a cozy book, knitting and drinking a hot drink.

Thanks for the chance!

It's very Japanese both in style and the choice of yarn. Really pretty!

I love this scarf. The Noro colours are perfect.

Jennie said...

Both scarves are lovely, I can't decide which one is my fave. =)

mooncalf said...

Beautiful. Colour 150 is my favourite Noro colour ever. It makes me think of mountains and fjords and snow and pine forests.
