Mohair Scarf

by greenrabbitdesigns

You all know by now about my love of mohair, with my mohair corsages and Smokey Bear.
Well I decided I would like some new mohair and I sent for these lovely balls of yarn from here.

I thought this time I would make a scarf but not a normal straight up and down scarf, one made up of little crochet motifs.

I used the duck egg blue colour, now this is the name that the company have given it, personally I think it’s more of a blue grey rather than duck egg. It is still a very beautiful shade. I had to use the yarn doubled as it is a very, very fine mohair.

I used up the whole ball of yarn and I got 11 little motifs from it. I joined them together as I went along, at a slight angle each time so that they didn’t form a straight row.
It’s not a huge scarf, it’s decorative rather than practical but I’m quite pleased with the outcome!

Before I go I would just like to thank the lovely Emma from Sylvie’s Garden for awarding me ‘The Stylish Blogger’ award. Now as I have received this award before you can find the ‘7 things’ about me here in this post. As for passing it on if you’re reading this and you haven’t yet received this award, then I’m awarding it to you!! Thanks again Emma for being so kind !

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you all next week! 🙂

Such a soft wool Vivienne, you know I am a fan of mohair as well. Those little motifs make up a wonderful pattern…a scarf for Spring perhaps?
Have a good end of the week and weekend,

So beautiful, Vivienne! Your crochet is so perfect and the beautiful yarn makes it even more special. I am quite inspired to knit some mohair again – just need to find the right weight (and I wish I hadn’t lost my patterns from the 80’s!)Your scarf will be so delicate but cosy – just right for the cool spring days. Have a lovely day. Helen x

Your work always look so neat Vivienne. I’m very jealous.

This is a gorgeous looking scarf and the smokey-grey colour is just beautiful :0) What plans have you got for the very pretty pink that’s sitting in the background?

Have you seen this fabulous, crocheted scarf – http://arbrealaine.wordpress.com/2011/01/13/defi13-de-princesse ???? Isn’t it pretty? I can only dream of one day being able to make it.

Beautiful work Vivienne. I especially loved the yarn colours in your other post. I’m having serious yarn cravings at the moment and waiting for paypay to feed my fix, so seeing yours has helped a wee bit. Have a great weekend.

Hi Vivienne,

Love your scarf and the colour is gorgeous. Are you abel to tell me what the motif pattern is as I have some mohair left over from a jumper and would love to make a scarf if you don’t mind.

Thanks bev
