I only made one Christmas gift this year and I have to admit it was hard to give away! This knit scarf came out so soft and luxurious that I absolutely fell in love with it … but I made it with my mom in mind and I love her more, so I lovingly wrapped it up and waited excitedly for Christmas when I could give it to her. I am happy to say that she loves it too!
I used a yummy yarn from my local yarn shop called Shibui Silk Cloud and it was absolutely divine to work with! It gives off a beautiful and soft halo too. I bought 3 hanks, 2 in a deep purple color they called Velvet and 1 in a more muted color called Mineral. I knit with all three at the same time to get a nice depth and color variation. Hope you enjoy this knit scarf pattern too!

Great pattern for beginning knitters (and experienced ones, too). Love the combination of simple stitches and luxurious yarn. Thanks for sharing.

thankyou so much for pattern I am going to make this for my sister for her 70th birthday
Hi Kara….lovvvv this pattern…I am worried it would curl inward….does it..????
Hi Judy 🙂 I didn’t have any trouble with curling when working this up. I think the alternating of garter stitch and stockinette stitch sections helps 🙂
thanks soooo much…!!!!
Do I us e all three yarns together to make the stitches?
Yes, you would work all three strands together 🙂
Beautiful! I can imagine being swaddled in all that softness!!
Thank you 🙂
