Crafty Monday: Twilight Scarf


Twilight ScarfI cast on this last week while we were on vacation. It’s the Twilight Scarf from the book A Fine Fleece. I used that silk yarn hand spun from silk hankies (the one I started to use for the Morning Surf Scarf) and some yarn I hand dyed with grape Kool-Aid a couple of years ago.

At first I was daunted by having to cut the silk yarn each section because the main color pattern repeat is 12 rows and I didn’t think it would look good carrying the contrasting yarn that many rows. However, I devised a trick (and I’m sure I’m not the first person in the knitting world to think of this). At the start of each right side row (where my yarn not being used was hanging out) I wrapped my working yarn around the non-working yarn. The non-working yarn would get “weaved in” up the side automatically. It turned out really well and I only had a few ends to weave in at the end as opposed to a million. yay!

As usual, here is the Ravelry info if you wish to see it.
