Now that we are truly into the Winter season, I thought it would be fun to knit a mohair scarf for January. This little beauty is just begun; but already you can see the beautiful chevron pattern emerging.
Make it as long or as short as you like; as wide as is comfortable. The soft mohair against your neck will be like little snowflakes keeping you warm!
I used Mohair Royal yarn, made in Italy. At 235 yards per ball, two or three balls would be enough for the perfect length. Any Mohair Yarn will do. I also am using bamboo needles. They are so easy to knit with and for this scarf I chose size 5.
CO 61 stitches. (This pattern is a multiple of 10 stitches +1)
Row 1 (WS) and all wrong-side rows: Purl.
Row 2: * K5, yo, ssk, k3; rep from *, end k1.
Row 4: * K3, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2; rep from *, end k1.
Row 6: * K2, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, k1; rep from *, end k1.
Row 8: * K1, k2tog, yo, k5, yo, ssk; rep from *, end k1.
Row 10: K2tog, yo, k7, * yo, sk2p, yo, k7; rep from *, end yo, ssk.
Repeat these 10 rows for desired length.
Be careful with yarnovers and take your time knitting something so fragile. I know I have a tendency to want to rush through; yet, knitting is a lesson in patience.
Just perfect for these snowy Winter days.
A project like this is perfect to take along wherever you go. People will be impressed with your knitting this pattern. You could almost call it a wedding cake wonder! Very pretty.
