Finished silk scarf with mohair edge

Finished scarf, silk ribbon, rib stitch with crochet mohair edge, size 11 plastic knitting needles, 11 in. and size I/9 5.5mm aluminum crochet hook.

I called this ribbon "ornery" because it was very challenging to get a gage and stitch pattern that would allow the fabric to drape without it looking like a tangled mess of yarn rather than a real fabric. I found it also very difficult to find another yarn for a finishing edge due to the colors in the ribbon and how they change. But I DID find this lovely periwinkle mohair and I'm very happy with the results. It's a very light weight beautiful spring scarf.
