Shibori Romance Scarf

This gorgeous shibori scarf is knit with 4 skeins of Alchemy Yarns of Transformation Silken Straw and a feltable worsted weight yarn. The scarf is knit then felted. The effect is stunning-- slightly ruched, lace paneled center with lightly ruffled edges-- gorgeous!

Shibori knitting is used by knitters to add shape, texture and dimension to felted objects by including non-felting fibers or inserting objects onto the fabric before felting so that parts of the piece felt and other parts don’t-- in this case the feltable yarn felts and the silk does not. This is the perfect project if you want to try shibori knitting.

(Shibori is really fun to do. The results can be unexpected, but rarely, if ever disappointing. Machado's pattern is indeed an excellent way to start. One word of warning - stay away from white wool. It won't felt as well as other colours--ed.)
