Silk Smoke Ring

HeartStrings knitting pattern #H28

Silk Smoke is a versatile accessory you can wear laid on your shoulders as a dressy cowl neckline, or pulled over your head as a wimple.

This smoke ring is knitted circularly to make a seamless tube. Although the lace pattern looks complicated, the spectacular results are accomplished with a stitch sequence that is repetitive and relatively easy.

No special knitting techniques are needed to make the fluted scallop edge — the shaping occurs naturally as a result of the bias structure of the lace pattern stitch. Magical!

Silk Smoke Ring. The inherent elasticity and drape of the semi-ribbed lace stitch pattern makes a decorative yet functional addition to any outfit.

The inherent elasticity and drape of the semi-ribbed lace stitch pattern makes a decorative yet functional addition to any outfit.

Although smoke rings seem to be more traditionally made in subdued natural or grayed-down colors, I chose a fiery red here to play on the idea of "where there is smoke there is fire!".

Here is another model of Silk Smoke, this time knitted in Tencel yarn in the colorway Smoky Places. I wanted to give you an idea of the lovely way that variegated colors look in this pattern as well as solids.
