Knitted this up using banana silk yarn, which was the most interesting experience.
The yarn goes thick and thin without warning - it actually goes really really thin, almost to breaking point. Very soft and drape-y though. Certainly doesn't feel like any other yarn I've worked with.
The project itself was a quick knit, like most other neckwarmers and really easy to memorise the stitch patterns. Love the pattern, it's kind of like a stockinette stitch, without the curl. It also uses a very small amount of yarn.
Button was an eBay purchase. Supposed vintage bakelite buttons.
It's not the kind of colours I would choose for myself, which works well since it isn't for me!
