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!
