Kidsilk Haze Shoulder Scarf (2008)
|Pattern: Branching Out
by Susan Pierce Lawrence, http://www.knitty.com/issuespring05/PATTbranchingout.html
Yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Haze (70% super kid mohair, 30% silk)
Completed: March 23, 2008.
I had one (delicious) ball of Rowan Kidsilk Haze (approx 200yds), and I wanted something that would be wide enough to cover my shoulders and provide just a little bit of extra warmth with a jacket. No need to tie in the front or have any fussy folding in front.
I turned to the Branching Out pattern, and added 6 extra stitches on either side (3 more garter stitches and some eyelet). This produced a scarf that was some 11″ wide, and 47″ long (blocked) — perfect! Weighing in at less than an ounce, it’s the sort of thing I can easily have in my purse or bag, and pull out in chilly meeting rooms, as needed.
|Resting on shoulders — providing warmth across the back & shoulders, without requiring tying at the front.|
|Very sproingy! A ball of energy. And, little left — the total 25g of yarn is shown in the second picture.|
|Detail — while blocking, and post-blocking.|
|Delicately swinging in the breeze.|
