Mohair Bias Loop Pattern
Wear this sheer seamless loop as a long, endless scarf, or twisted double as a cowl, or around your shoulders as a wrap. We’ve knit it on the bias so the edges don’t roll and it sits nicely on the shoulders. Light as air, it folds up to nearly nothing, and is equally talented at dressy and casual—the perfect piece for travel.
Approx. 16–17"/41–43cm x 42"/107cm around.
2 skeins Rowan Kidsilk Haze (229 yds/210m each); shown in Color 589.
Or approx. 350 yds/320m of an equivalent lace-weight mohair yarn.
NEEDLES & NOTIONS
Size J (6mm) crochet hook for provisional cast-on.
US 10½ (6.5mm) circular needles, or size to get gauge.
Another circular needle to hold stitches while grafting.
Approx. 12 sts = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch, after blocking.
This pattern has long been a shop favorite. We've all knit them—and sometimes more than one. It's a versatile, stylish, easy-to-throw-on kind of piece. The knitting is a pleasure too, with the simply biased stockinette fabric. If there is a sticky part, it comes with the grafting—we recommend setting aside a couple of hours where you can begin and end the grafting. Once you've begun you won't want to stop. If you've not grafted before, we suggest a practice session; knit up a couple of 24-stitch swatches and follow the grafting instructions. You'll get into a grafting rhythm in no time and emerge an expert!
