Silk Bandana Scarf

Remember that recycled silk yarn I bought from a few weeks ago?  Well,  here is is – all grown up and ready for the summer bandana scarf trend.  It’s a mitered triangle knit on large needles that makes it a really quick knit.  And, the recycled silk has so many colors that this bandana will match almost anything.  I’m already getting a lot of wear out of it.

Thank you to Gibson for helping out with the photo shoot this morning.  He adds a real sense of nobility to the piece, don’t you think?

Well, here’s the pattern.  I’ve written out every row even though it’s a repetitive pattern, because I never could figure out how to place the markers so they’d stay in the middle.  If you figure it out – please let me know!

Materials:  1 skein of recycled silk yarn & size 15 straight needles.
