Demi Lune Scarf Using Shibui Tweed Silk Cloud
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!
The Demi Lune Scarf is light, delicate, and floaty in Shibui Tweed Silk Cloud. This lace-weight yarn’s core of silk has quiet, tonal flecks that seem to glimmer within the soft cloud of kid mohair. Tweed Silk Cloud brings a gentle, dreamy texture to the simple stockinette of the Demi Lune.
