I didn’t plan on this project, but saw it on Knit Purl’s website and couldn’t resist. It gave me an excuse to use Shibui Staccato yarn (65% superwash merino, 30% silk, 5% nylon) for something other than sock knitting (which I tend to avoid at all costs). Just enough of a lace pattern to keep it interesting, not so much that I had to concentrate exclusively on the pattern. The pattern is Draper (also by Shibui) and the yarn color is Poodle Skirt (great name!) – I needed two skeins (really, 1 1/2 skeins) for the small size scarf, and US 5 needles (24” circulars or longer).
The large size (which takes 4 skeins) is really striking, but I think the small size is much more versatile – you can wear it without it covering your entire torso. The triangular shape actually makes it easier to figure out how to drape and tie it, and I came up with several different ways to wear it.
I finished in just a couple of days, so I may try one in another color . . .Pin It
