Prism Galaxy Ribbon Yarn Jewels

Galaxy is a very wide nylon railroad style ribbon with intermittent patches of gold or silver metallic. The yarn can be knit densely or very loosely. It also makes spectacular fringe. The knitted fabric is silky and yet has body, and the metallic is very noticeable (and fabulous).

Lancaster Scarf PatternUse this ribbon alone to create spectacular gaments or mix in to give your scarf or sweater a special one of a kind look!

Need a pattern?   Try the Lancaster Scarf pattern.   Fabulous and stylish, quick and easy to knit, this garter stitch scarf is made from Prism Galaxy and Manhattan Ribbons and knits up easily on size 17 needles.

The Lancaster Scarf requires the following materials, 1 Skein Prism Galaxy Yarn and 1 Skein of Prism Manhattan Yarn, Knitting Needles Size US 17 (12.5 mm) and a crochet hook to attach trim.  Finished Size for the Lancaster Scarf is approximately 66 x 5 inches (170 x 12 cm).

Prism Manhattan Yarn is used on the neck of this fabulous scarf for softness and drape.  Manhattan yarn is a favorite here at The Yarn and Fiber Company. A beautiful spliced yarn that moves from matte cotton to shiny nylon to shiny rayon to matte nylon in random stripes, Manhattan's effect is gloriously subtle and syncopated. Sure, there are stripes--but they are irregular and broken into random lengths. The play of matte versus shine is really spectacular!
