sagano shawl

sagano shawl

Sagano is an area located in western Kyoto, Japan, where the serene landscape includes one of the most spectacular bamboo forests in all of Japan. This textured scarf-sized shawl evokes the quiet beauty of bamboo in its leafy main stitch and stemlike ribbed edging. Use a special, soft yarn and keep the drafts away!

46 inches / 116 cm across the top, 15 inches / 38 cm down the centre of the shawl. The size of this scarf is easily modified to be larger by using a heavier yarn or working more repeats.

Special thanks to Bonnie and Erica for test knitting!

Fingering Weight yarn, 450 yards.
Shown in Wullenstudio Sock Yarn (75% merino, 25% nylon; 450 yards/100g) in Green Tambourine.
US 6 / 4 mm circular needles, 32 inches / 80 cm or longer stitch markers tapestry needle

25 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches / 10 cm square in stockinette stitch. Exact gauge is not crucial for this project, although the gauge will affect the final size.

I was going to buy new yarn for it, but a) I just bought 4 skeins of yarn recently, b) I still don’t have a job, and c) I should start killing the stash. […]

    Hi Laura!

    The Sagano Shawl is beautiful, but I fear I’m knitting it wrong. Looking at the RS, the diagonals to the right of the marker seems to be going in the correct direction, but the diagonals to the left of the marker seem to be going in the opposite direction as what is pictured. I am following the M1R and then M1L, but I’m worried that I’m doing something wrong. Do you have any advice for me?
