You know, the Moss Seasilk might have been a faulty skein after all! Remember how it didn't have any discernable scent?
Well, in contrast, every time I handled the Straw skein, I got an unmistakable 'green tea ice cream' aroma, reminiscent of the Tilli Tomas Pure and Simple silk I've used in the past. Mmm, mmm, delicious!
Needles: Blunti Stumpos, US 4 (3.50 mm), F (3.75 mm) crochet hook.
Yarn: HandMaiden Sea Silk in Straw, 1 skein (438 yards), used up almost in its entirety.
Finished dimensions: approximately 13" wide and 58" long (28 repeats plus crocheted edging).
One skein of Seasilk does it again! A totally wearable scarf which doesn't offend the budget? Check!
What I love most about this pattern is that it really allowed me to squeeze every last stitch out of a limited amount of yarn. The lace is quite open, and knitting the scarf in one piece left the algebra 'out of the equation' :). As a result, the Dolphin scarf is even bigger than the Melon scarf!
