This is a fun holiday gift, whether you make it for a loved one, or get the kit as a gift for your favorite knitter.
I made it for MYSELF….. I realized how much I love wearing silk as a large shawl/scarf that is wrapped around the neck. Because I spend so much of my time going in and out of the car, and in and out of stores, it is always a challenge to wear woolen knits that are too warm and that make me uncomfortable.
So the thing about silk is that you never feel too hot or too cold wearing it. It takes to your body temperature and you barely know you have it on. Yet it is completely protective, and keeps you warm.
The pattern is easy as anything (just stockinette) and designed to be adjustable. The yarn is held double on size 11 US needles, which is how it transitions so smoothly. Cast on less stitches if you prefer a shorter wider shawl. I designed this one so that i could wrap it once around the neck as you can see here:
Or if it is really chilly, I can wrap it twice around the neck as shown here:
It is super-versatile as you can see here. Right now we’re offering it in two color combinations, but if you have suggestions as to other colors you’d like to see, please let us know.
