FO: Wisp

My weekend trip to Detroit gave me the opportunity to finally finish up one of my long-term WIPs – something that isn’t a sweater for a change:

Wisp

Pattern: Wisp
Yarn: ShibuiKnits Silk Cloud, color “Chinese Red”, 1 skein
Needles: US 8 (5 mm)
Ravelry: Project page, pattern page

This yarn is a little bit lighter weight than Kid Silk Haze. I did 24 panels of the fishnet pattern, rather than the 17 called for in the pattern. Yet my finished scarf is narrower and only slightly longer than the dimensions in the pattern. My finished blocked measurements are 11 x 56″, instead of 12.5 x 50″.

This is a very easy pattern to knit, since it’s just alternating panels of faggoting (YO, K2tog) and garter stitch. And of course, it’s the same on both sides.

    Great color and it must feel like a heaven on your skin.

  4. Very nice, I like it. I may repurpose a skein of that yarn I have floating around I bought for something else…It’s not that color, though.

    One skein of Chinese Red, hm? (I remember when you started this….I was there, I do believe!) I just happen to have a skein of Chinese Red also… And it is such a gorgeous color and such soft yarn. I need to find some knitting time and inspiration, though.
