recycled silk yarn & free pattern!

I’m a lucky lady and received three balls of recycled silk yarn from my husband for Hanukkah.  I haven’t decided how, what, to make, but I HAD to make SOMETHING. So I just made a simple, skinny infinity cowl. Doubles and singles alternating.

 The yarn is quite stiff to work with at first. Almost like crocheting with wire.  But after wearing the cowl for a bit the fabric loosened up and the drape became very nice and supple.
