I like combining colours and textures to get different looks. I had a skein of lace weight alpaca/silk in a pale lavender which wasn’t quite my colour, so I mixed it with other yarns to produce the following:
I used a Fibonacci sequence for the stripes which were formed by dropping the alpaca silk for 2 rows. As the silk/stainless steel is so fine it is almost like breaks in the scarf. I think this will be really effective when worn with dark jumpers and jackets.
