Knitted Silk


My mother is allergic to wool so for Christmas I have knitted her a scarf in silk. This should be very comfortable next to her skin and it has lovely drape. It could even be used as a table runner really.
The pattern is "Fern Lace Scarf" by Knitting Pixie and is available as a FREE download on Ravelry.


I've used a combination of two different hand dyed silks that I purchased from


The pattern is a very easy repeat over 12 rows. Admittedly, it was much easier if I put the knitting down at row 12 and I did have to unpick a couple of times because I forgot where I was at sometimes. My yarn was about sport weight so I used 4.5mm needles. It is not a very long scarf but certainly enough to knot in front. I am very happy with the end result and the pattern really showcases the yarns lovely textures and colour variations.

  5. So beautiful Tanya.
    Its been lovely seeing a few more posts from you than usual pop up lately.
    I have your presents here - they are sitting next to me as I type. Planning to post before Christmas, but you won't get them until after. Something to rip the wrapping off when all your other pressies have been opened?!
    Love to you, Kylie x

  7. Ohhhhhh I love it. I imagine it being so soft and silky next to your MIL's skin. I is enough to make me pick up the needles again or bribe my MIL to knit one for me.
