Shibui Silk Cloud Scarf
This beautiful scarf is made with only two skeins of Shibui Silk Cloud. Its a super light silk mohair yarn that has amazing depth since the silk core is a slightly lighter shade than the mohair fluff surrounding it. The stitch pattern is good old Feather and Fan, a really simple lace—think YARN OVER (YO) and KNIT 2 TOGETHER (K2tog).
To make the scarf you hold 2 strands of yarn together throughout, the different shaded stripes come from switching out which two strands of yarn you hold together. The sample shown uses one skein of Mineral and one skein of Clay.
With 2 strands held together and a US size 13 needle CO 38 sts
Row 1: Knit.
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: K1, *k2tog (3 times), yo k1 (6 times), k2tog (3 times); rep from *, to the last st, k1.
Row 4: Knit.
Repeat Rows 1 – 4 for pattern. Switch the combination of the yarns held together every 12 rows.
Work 180 rows total.
