Kidsilk Haze Shoulder Scarf (2008)


KSH-ShoulderScarf Pattern:  Branching Out
by Susan Pierce Lawrence,

  Rowan Kidsilk Haze (70% super kid mohair, 30% silk)
Method:  Handknit
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.
