Silk Smoke is a versatile accessory you can wear laid on your shoulders as a dressy cowl neckline, or pulled over your head as a wimple.
This smoke ring is knitted circularly to make a seamless tube. Although the lace pattern looks complicated, the spectacular results are accomplished with a stitch sequence that is repetitive and relatively easy.
There are no special knitting techniques needed to make the fluted scallop edge the shaping occurs naturally as a result of the bias structure of the lace pattern stitch.
The inherent elasticity and drape of the semi-ribbed lace stitch pattern combined with luxurious silk makes this article a decorative yet functional addition to any outfit.
