Recycled Silk Scarf

Yarn: Himalayan Yarn Co. Tibet Recycled Silk
Needles: Clover Takumi Bamboo Sz 9 24″ Circular
Pattern: Karen Baumer’s Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf

This projected started out as a single skein of yarn that I purchased at Sweet Stitch to make a hat. At starting at it for several days I decided to go back and get two more skeins in different colours to make a scarf. I got there just in time too, as all she had left were four skeins.

Fast forward a few weeks. I got this wild idea to put beaded fringe on the ends. So off to the local bead shop I went, where I experienced massive sticker shock. Glass cane adds up fast, as it is sold by the gram. $32.00 later I had the 28 beads that I needed for the fringe.

Overall I am very pleased with how this scarf turned out. It’s over six feet long without the fringe and rather warm to boot. And while knitting it I quickly learned that short rows are something are not ment to be done in a percocet-addled state. My Mom seems to think she’ll be able to lay claim to this but I believe she is sadly mistaken, as it will be my neck this will be warming come next winter.
