Happy New Year! Luxe Links Wrap

Happy New Year to one and all! I would like to thank all my subscribers for a great year, and I hope I've provided you with the fun, "qwik" knitting projects you were looking for. I love getting your comments and questions, so keep them coming!
This wrap has a touch of glitter and glitz to kick your year off to a shining start!
Again, a safe, happy and healthy New Year to All! And have a fabulous knitting year! Marla
1 Artyarns Skein Silk Rhapsody Glitter
1 Artyarns Skein Silk Mohair
Approximate Size: 10 x 75in
Pair Size 13 Knitting Needles
Crochet hook for attaching the fringe

*Fringe - see instructions at end of pattern - some people like to cut the fringe fi rst to ensure they have enough for entire scarf.
K1 - knit one stitch
YO (yarn over - yarn wraps over needle)
DYO (Double Yarn Over - yarn wraps over needle twice)
Preparation: Wind Silk Rhapsody glitter and Silk Mohair together to create your spectacular knitting yarn. The way to do it - wind each yarn into a ball, then wind the two balls together.
Because of yardage differences, you may have excess silk mohair!

Please see note on creating fringe first!

cut 10 inch lengths of yarn and hand tie or crochet onto fi rst and last rows to create fringe.
