Sylkie features a beautiful, and fun to knit, slipped stitch pattern. A small amount of courage is required as the crossed stitches are formed without the use of a cable needle! However, as this allows for speedier progress it means you’ll get to keep your neck nice and cozy sooner, rather than later!

Sylkie is worked lengthwise like a scarf and then seamed together making it simple to add length (which would require more yarn). An I-cord edging is worked at the same time as the slipped stitch pattern for a neat finish.

Charted and written instructions are included in the pattern.
