I actually made this shawl all in one day. I made it while I was at the Purl's Yarn Emporium spring knitting retreat in Black Mountain North Carolina. There were three skeins of this yarn on the gift table so I used it with a 5 mm hook and worked up this basic shawl all... Continue Reading →
I made this small wrap for a retirement gift. I used Italian mohair and wool yarns crocheting them two strands at a time in a half granny square motif. Then for the border I used two strands of gray wool in a single crochet.
Made this over the weekend with some beautiful yarn. No pattern. Just hdc all the way. Used the mohair yarn with each of the other two alternating yarns.
Finished and delivered this birthday gift! It's a wrap/capelet and I used two strands of yarn for the body: cashmere/merino and silk mohair. I didn't use a pattern either - guess I should write these things down as I do them!
Made this loom knitted scarf for Saskia from fine silk mohair yarn. Update: I made this scarf using the smallest (blue) circular loom knitting loom only using every other peg. There was no pattern so just keep going till it's long enough then cast off and tie ends in knots. It's that simple 🙂
For this scarf I used Sundance Countryside yarn which is Acrylic/Mohair/Wool and used a simple ruffle pattern. It's a modified version of the LoDo scarf pattern on Ravelry.

This nice long scarf only took a couple of days to make. I used a simple fan stitch and used three balls of Sundance Countryside wool/mohair/acrylic yarn. However, because I hardly ever use patterns, I now have one ball leftover. Tassels? Maybe. I have 4 balls of another color so I'll just make it wider!
For this scarf I used two strands of yarn. One is mohair and the other a tweed. I used a large crochet hook so the fan stitch is really open. This will sure be a warm scarf!
