Scarves that double as shawls ...

Will add something more to the wardrobe as well as keep your neck and shoulders warm. So why not knit a few to pull out when you need them, right?

My first one this week is light and airy. Supper soft of course and it really gives a collarless blouse another dimension, texture and style.

Pattern: Annis by Susanna IC
Needles: US 8 - 5.0 mm and US 10 - 6.0 mm for cast-on only
: Jade Sapphire Silk/Cashmere 2-ply
How much used: 1 skeins = 400.0 yards (365.8m)

Measurement: 70” wide x 13” long

I love wearing this one ...

I made Annis before. It was a lot of fun and super simple. Saroyan looks wonderfully warm.
