Atlas Shrugged

I received some sample skeins of Fleece Artist’s new put up of Kid Silk 2-ply in two of their 2015 colorways, Atlas (used in this project) and Tiger Lily.  I wanted a super fast, super easy project that took up a single skein (100g).  And since I’ve been on a garter stitch kick lately…

I came up with this long, shallow scarf knit on the bias.  The stair-stepped edge is created using bound-off stitches, and the other edge uses increases to create the gentle slope.

I really love how the garter stitch rendered the highly variegated colorway.  I’m also very pleased with the size and shape of the scarf!  It’s approximately 66″ x 10″ at the deepest point, and it can be wrapped around the neck once or twice.  Now, to write the pattern down!
