Today has been a fantastic day so far! I was able to sleep in, had a good cup of coffee and I finished up my latest project, a lace and mohair infinity scarf. It’s been a long while since I last knitted a lace project and I’m very pleased with how this scarf has turned out.
For this project I used size 4 circular needles and mohair yarn that I bought a long time ago but never used. I am trying to use up yarn from my massive yarn stash but unfortunately, I am buying more than I am using. All you knitters out there know what I am talking about 🙂
With this pattern, the edges will curl. I kinda like the curled look but decided to block it to see what it looks like completely flat. If you don’t want the edges to curl, I recommend blocking it or adding a border (pattern does not include a border).
Before blocking: curled edges (I like this look. It’s unique.)
I consider this scarf to be a cross between a cowl and an infinity scarf. It’s not quite as long as the standard scarf and it’s larger than a cowl.
Measurements: 47″ (approximately 119 cm) circumference and 9.5″ (approximately 24 cm) wide.
