FREE KNITTING PATTERN for SILVER STRAND SCARF/SHAWL
Free Knitting Pattern for "Silver Strand" Mohair Silk Scarf or Shawl.This pattern was inspired by “Silver Strand” a beautiful deserted sandy beach , near the town of Louisburgh, County Mayo, in the West of Ireland. The beach has miles and miles of pristine golden sand edged with undulating, grass-covered sand dunes. The glorious clear blue-green water, golden sand, white-topped waves, green grasses and grey pebbles are enlivened with the occasional pinks and lilacs of seashells and the pink bog roses that grow near the shore. All of these magnificent colours are captured in this beautiful scarf/shawl. The scarf is light as a feather and will float after you as you stroll along the beach, hike through the mountains or saunter along the city streets. It is also deliciously soft and warm . The yarn used is a wonderful light, airy, warm and comfortable mohair silk from Rowan. The scarf is long enough to be wound around your neck at least twice, or can be worn long and loose. If you knit the shawl/wrap version it will fit nicely around your shoulders keeping you warm and casually elegant at once.
The pattern can be knit as a long, flowing scarf or knit into a wide, short wrap.
