Jaeger purple skinny scarf
Yarn: Jaeger silk 4ply, 1x50g ball
Sticks: 4mm bamboo
Time: started in April 2006, finished in early June 2006 – in between a heap of other projects
Pattern: customised a vintage glove pattern from Jane Waller’s A Stitch in Time (published in the 70s) – picked up the pattern (a 12 row repeat) but had to experiment a few times to get the edging right – lots of ripping back and starting again (and I hate that) but I’m pretty happy with the end result – a good length (nearly 2m) and the right level of skinniness!
Now I have two balls of this silk in a beautiful deep red which I have to decide what to do with…I’m thinking a crochet scarf with circles joined by chain strings at random intervals. Will sketch it out and see how it looks…
