this little shoulderwarmer is from glampyre’s “one skein wonder” pattern. it’s knitted with banana silk. it literally took one skein to knit this – i had about 5cm of yarn left when i finished casting off.

the pattern was really fun and quick to knit, and i’ll probably knit it again with different yarn.

banana yarn is really nice to knit with and makes a thick, soft fabric. it’s not at all stretchy, which made the parts knitted on smaller needles a bit of a mission. the yarn actually snapped in a couple of places. i also found that this yarn left dye on my fingers while i was knitting with it, so i’ll definitely be washing it separately from other clothes.
