PINK SILK SCARF
FO - Pink Silk Scarf2
I finished this scarf a week back but didn’t take pictures, so the posting has been postponed. The pictures are taken at my Moms place when i visited them over the weekend. (I felt a bit awkward running around the place with a camera and bright pink scarf, in search of a pink flower tree :-))

History
With my two knit projects crawling, i wanted a quick knit as i was dying for an FO. I searched up and down Ravelry for a 1 skien scarf and came across this lovely lace scarf.

Yarn: Pure Silk by Debbie Bliss in Pink – 1 skien (I got this in my “Mini Purse Swap”)
Needles: I first used 4mm after some 15 rows changed to 5mm.
Others: Tapestry Needle
Gauge: Gauge is not specific, 5mm gives a lacier feel than 4mm.
Size: 4″ Wide and 46″ Long
Pattern: Pattern is simple as for both RS and WS its the same pattern notes. The pattern is here.
Notes:
The only change i did was,I added one more pattern repeat as a wanted a bit wider scarf and didnt do the fringe as i don’t have another skien for back up.
The scarf is divine… the yarn is so soft. Doing a “P2 tog” is a bit tricky with this yarn as it tends to split. It can be used either as a scarf or as a stole or as a headband to keep your hair off your face.
I didn’t block the scarf, Should I???? Its looks fine for me now.
If i make it again;
I will add a fringe as the pattern says.

Learnt:
I did the bind off by using a tapestry needle instead of the normal knit bind off i use. Now the cast on side and the bind off side look almost the same…
