Demi Lune Scarf Using Shibui Silk Cloud & Shibui Reed
The relaxing rhythm of stockinette stitch creates a simple, supple fabric—the perfect canvas to play with degrees of sheerness. Adding a feminine eyelet lace edge keeps the knitting interesting. With long tapered ends, this scarf’s shape lies somewhere between half moon and triangle. Started at the top edge, the knitting gets faster and faster as you go!
For a Demi Lune Scarf with a little less sheerness and a little more weight, we paired Shibui Reed and Silk Cloud. The sleek, pliable nature of 100% linen Reed is softened by the smooth silk and gently fuzzy mohair of Silk Cloud. Held together throughout, these yarns create a particularly graceful Demi Lune!
Pick up the pattern below and choose a colorway. Each colorway contains 2 skeins of Silk Cloud and 3 skeins of Reed. To see all available colors of Silk Cloud and Reed, head over to the Shibui Silk Cloud and Shibui Reed pages.
