recycled sari silk I bought back in August. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. The silk was a bit of pain to knit with because it twists something chronic and I had to keep clipping it and dangling it to spin and untwist whilst being careful not to untwist it so far that it completely deconstructed. The pattern calls for the edges to be crocheted which I didn't do. The silk would not have been easy to crochet and I don't think that this cape really needed it. If I'd used a plainer yarn, then the crochet would be a good idea.
