I want to knit a short scarf from this yarn, preferably one that is looped or tied around the neck . It is made from 100% silk and a 70% kid mohair/30% silk blend and is hand-painted in gorgeous colors. I have only 260 yds. To me it cries out for a lacey look. I think maybe it will fit better if there are some decreases in the are where it is to be tied, but can't find anything. Anyone have any suggestions? This is to be a gift for my SIL who had my DF with her for about six weeks when he had several cracked vertebrae, so I want it to be SPECIAL.
The yarn is RH 105, Silk Rhapsody, from Art Yarns.
