Color Play Mohair Wrap Using Isager Silk Mohair
We love how the shaded blocks of color develop as we knit the Color Play Mohair Wrap. Watching two tones meld together to create something new is so satisfying. For this wrap. We mixed four solids—two at a time—in six blocks of marled color with the sections a little irregular in length (we like that organic touch). Try mixing tonal colors for ombré shading or cross the color wheel for graphic punch!
In Isager Silk Mohair, the Color Play Mohair Wrap is silky sheer bliss. The soft shimmer of silk glows through the airy halo of mohair in this lace-weight yarn. Silk Mohair is so light, it nearly defies gravity! Of course, leave it to Isager to devise an exquisite color palette—full of soft, lustrous shades each more delicious than the last.
We've put together some colorways for you below, but if you'd like to choose your own colors, visit the yarn page here!

The Free Adaptation
Please refer to the original pattern for complete instructions. Only changes are covered in this adaptation.
Instead of using a self-striping yarn as shown in the original pattern, we mixed four different colors six different ways; we think it’s nice for the sections to be a little bit irregular.
Following instructions given for wrap, with one strand each of colors A and B, cast on as directed in original pattern.
Wrap color sequence
Work ‘border’ and ‘body’ as directed in original pattern, using the color sequence below:
Section 1: A + B, until wrap measures approx. 111⁄2"/29cm from cast-on edge.
Section 2: B + C, until wrap measures approx. 221⁄2"/57cm.
Section 3: C + D, until wrap measures approx. 331⁄2"/85cm.
Section 4: D + A, until wrap measures approx. 45"/114.5cm.
Section 5: D + B, until wrap measures approx. 61"/155cm, or until one color runs out.
Section 6: A + C, until wrap measures approx. 75"/190.5cm, or until you have just enough in each color to work 10 rows of seed stitch and bind off (approx. 27 yds/25m each).
Work final border and block as directed in original pattern.
