Kim Dyes Yarn Florentine Silk is a gently glowing fingering weight of 100% Silk. Despite its luster and slippery softness, silk is a strong fiber that creates light and warm knits that will have you glowing, too. Kim's hand-dyed tonal and speckly colors come alive on this silk base!
While this silk will have you glowing on the outside, Shelley's "Amora" scarf will have you glowing on the inside.
When traveling through Paris, Shelley was struck by the fact that all the Parisian women seemed to be wearing scarves, and all styled the same way - looped once, then tied. So she designed this ultra-simple project that alternates smaller and larger needles to give the silk some structure. The smaller-needle sections give the finished project more stability and a surprise effect: a subtly scalloped edge that’s especially pretty when worn as a shawl.
Knit your Amora with one skein of Florentine Silk and US 4 (3.5mm) and 13 (9mm) needles (straight or circular).
