A perfect layering piece for summer - or more importantly - New Orleans.
A few days later I was back. Having decided that the best look for the scarf would be one of a combination of neutrals, I had chosen some shiny white from stash, but came looking for some 'shiny' black. A thin black ribbon did the trick.
There were a few false starts trying to get the colour proportions just right - the vision was mostly taupe with a dash of black and white.
The addition of the black and white means the scarf will look dashing over both colours.
Bordered by a few rows of garter stitch, the centre of the scarf uses my favourite scarf stitch - K1, YO K2tog. I knit it lengthwise, casting on 180 stitches and used the yarn tails for fringe.
It is a 'Just In Time' scarf. Finished yesterday and blocked last night. Ready for the suitcase this morning.
