Crescent Shawl Pattern Using Puffed Silk Yarn – Darn Good Yarn
February 12, 2013
Good morning everyone! Fellow Darn Good Yarner Lauren has used my puffed silk yarn in my English Garden colorway to make this gorgeous crescent shawl. This yarn looks fabulous knitted up, and is MEGA soft and squishy–exactly what you’d want wrapped around your shoulders. It also has a glamorous drape too.
Lauren used a free pattern from ravelry.com, and it really showcases how well sari silk yarn can knit up in traditional patterns too.
Items needed for the pattern:
US 6 circular needle, 24 inches
Darning needle for weaving in the ends
Lauren said she used size US 5 needles for this project instead of the recommend size US 6 because…well, she couldn’t find her size 6 needles! Happens to us all, am I right?
The smaller needle size also meant that the fabric knitted up to be slightly firm, but it’s still loose and drapes beautifully. You can change the needle size around a bit too, but Lauren recommends not going smaller than a size US 5 needle. Great tip!
Absolutely breathtaking! Thank you so much for sending me these pictures, Lauren!
