This scarf is designed especially for silk double knit/worsted yarn. I had bought some Willowknits mini skeins of this yarn in several glorious colours and decided I wanted the luxury of a warm winter scarf with the drape of silk. I had 9 colours of yarn in various lengths, so a motif design was natural. The yarn has such a glorious lustre. You can find the yarn in Willowknits Etsy shop.
I decided on a simple circle motif, but when you join circles you can find large gaps between them. However, treat them a little like a hexagon and the joins are tighter, the gaps smaller. So that is what I did.
As made to the pattern the scarf measures 25cm (10") wide by 170cm (67") long when blocked. It is made of 49 motifs, 3 wide and 16/17 long. You can of course adapt to alternative yarns and use it in other projects - I'd love to see this motif in a snuggly blanket.
It is a great stashbuster.

Like many I took a couple of decades off my knitting and crochet whilst my working life took over, but now I am catching up. I always have a hook or pair of needles close by; my fingers do not like to rest. After reacquainting myself with my old hobbies, I progresed to creating my own designs. It seemed a natural progression for me, as did running crochet workshops in the NW of England.
Those who have tried my designs will know that I love creating simple designs that look very effective, after all life doesn't need to be complicated! And I understand that many people like a bit of television or music knitting/crochet, so the easier they are the better it is to enjoy the world around you whilst enjoying your craft.
