My mom has asked for a "dressy" scarf, so I've been searching around for a pattern.
I have found this pattern, but it's in bulky yarn, and she wants something more "dainty."
So, I was planning to adapt it to a smaller yarn, but I don't know enough about drape to decide what kind of yarn.
Would a mercerized cotton work, or would it not hold shape? Does anybody have a recommendation for a thinner yarn in a silvery colorway? Or a similar pattern already in a thinner yarn (I'm thinking sport or dk). Would a wool blend be too stiff?
Or will it not work in a thinner yarn? Do you think it would be better in a bulky?
