Shawl, mixed fibers: mohair, nylon, metallic, cotton, silk; garter stitch; size 9 metal cable needle, 24 in.
I'm LOVING knitting with the very hairy mohair and I adore this combination of colors. I'm making up the shape of the thing as I go along, but I'm settling into something that is going to be more like a short stole than a longer shawl. Right now I'm thinking of a fairly dramatic button closure with some cording to add to a rich barbaric effect. I'm beginning to do color combinations with rigid sequences of color and this is one. I have a light blue mohair, a multi color multi fiber yarn with a metallic filament, two colorways of hairy mohair and a smooth purple, repeating in the same sequence with two rows of each yarn. The fringe is the knotted side where I make the yarn change.
