Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

Silken Smoke, that is.

Silken Smoke1

The pattern can be found here. I used Regia Silk 4-ply sock yarn, 2 balls, 3.5 mm (US4) circular needle. I followed the pattern as written... sort of. Basically, this is a 16" tube. I flared it instead. Once I reached about 8", I started increasing every 2" or so. I find that it sits better on the shoulders that way, instead of bunching up at the base of the neck. Other than that, it's knitted as written. It's an easy knit; it only took me three days to knit. All in all, once you're past the lacy section, it's mindless knitting, perfect for working on while watching tv.

  1. It's beautiful Ev! Now I've got some sport weight that I think I can adapt nicely - the pattern would be a little bigger overall, but not less attractive for all that...

    How nice it looks on you!
