Stash alert! Grab that lonely ball of silky, kid mohair yarn that you could not resist at the store. Plus, a pair of size 9 needles and you'll be ready to rock this delicate and lovely quick-knit scarf.
This wispy scarf features a pretty, all-over lace design with gently curved ends. The lace pattern is fairly simple and repetitive (yet, not one you see everywhere) for enjoyable knitting. The entire scarf is fully charted and written out. And it's easily lengthened if you wish, by just adding extra reps in the middle.
It's the perfect little project to carry around with you and definitely a must-bring accessory when you travel!
Weighing less than 25 grams, this feather weight accessory is surprisingly warm and easily rolls up and tucks into your purse pocket when it's not adorning your neck.
You'll want to knit it multiple times -- whenever you have a hankering for knitting up some delicate lace and can use up those single balls of kid mohair and silk yarn in your stash (or local yarn shop's stash!).
