This is an exploration of knitted jewelry without beads in the fabric, and was inspired by a piece I saw on my favorite fancy British costume drama. To give drape and richness, I chose an amazing yak/silk blend yarn called Shangri-La by Bijou Basin Ranch. To imitate the look of a fully beaded fabric, I decided to work garter stitch with a single strand of the yarn. That meant some tiny knitting, but it’s only over 15 stitches so the work went quickly. To create interest, I added delicate intarsia designs. This is basically a very narrow scarf that is wrapped around the front of the neck first, forming a choker look, then the long ends cross at the back of the
neck and are brought to the front to drape gracefully down the front of the body.
