Summer Seaweed Habu Yarn Scarf
Have you seen the beautiful *yarns* from Habu? When I first discovered them, I didn’t know what I NEEDED to buy, and bought too many different varieties. Habu makes yarns from interesting fibers, and they are all so amazing. They sat and cured for about a year before I decided I needed an easy knitting project for a trip I was taking. This became my Summer Seaweed Habu Yarn Scarf!
This scarf has 4 different yarns from Habu. The black that you can see in the neckline is silk and stainless steel, the off-white and black are cork chenille, and I misplaced the label for the one that is black with the white tips.
An easy scarf to knit – kinda mindless. I cast on about 250 stitches, and then just knitted. A larger needle produced the lacy look I wanted with the fine *yarns* (they are really more like threads).
I was knitting this on a trip to the Texas coast with my family . . . the children thought the one yarn looked like the seaweed on the beach! So, I thought it would be a perfect name for the scarf!
