I finally got around to taking pictures of the fuzzy purple scarf too. I really enjoyed knitting with this Kidsilk Haze. Such a luxurious treat!
Yarn: 70% mohair and 30% silk; see above!
Needles: US #9
Pattern: Invisible Stripe Scarf by lupinbunny
I cast on 25 stitches for a 6″ wide scarf and went until I had 40″ (accessory size). Using my excellent new digital scale – whee! – I got 11.5 grams for this scarf. That’s just shy of half a ball, so two friends could split a ball of this fancy yarn. (By the way, I see Knit Picks has introduced a similar yarn called Aloft. Will try it sometime!)
This pattern is basically garter stitch (all K stitches) except that every now and then you do a row with 3 wraps for every K stitch. On the next row, you drop 2 of the wraps and knit a Very Big stitch to get back to your original stitch count. You can choose however many K rows you want between the fancy rows. I did the two rows described plus 4 more. You can do 2 wraps instead of 3. If you vary the number of wraps, you can get something like this:
