Vintage Crocheted Scarf 2-Color Version Using Isager Silk Mohair
We love the delicate drama of our favorite afghan stitch rendered in an ethereal lace-weight mohair. Two high-contrast colors offer geometric cool. Crocheted lengthwise, this piece has a slightly finicky start, but once you get the rhythm, you won’t be able to put it down!
In Isager Silk Mohair, the zigs and zags of the Vintage Crocheted Scarf has a silky-sheer bliss. The soft shimmer of silk glows through the airy halo of mohair in this lace-weight yarn. Crocheted in Silk Mohair, this scarf is so light, it nearly defies gravity.
Approx. 10 1/2" x 72"/26.5 x 183cm, after blocking.
Note: Width is measured peak to peak.
4 skeins Isager Silk Mohair (231 yds/211m each), 2 skeins each Colors A and B.
Colors shown at left: A=47, B=0.
Or equivalent amounts in two colors of a similar lace-weight mohair yarn.
1 repeat (peak to peak) = Approx. 2"/5cm, after blocking and resting.
Knitter's Note: This project may look daunting and the foundation row can be finicky, but we’ve added a chart to help you along the way. Take time to swatch so you can practice and get into the rhythm of the zigs and zags.
After working a few repeats, take a moment to look back and make sure your stitches match the chart. Checking every few repeats will save you from having to pull out a full row! Our test crocheters also found it was helpful to mark decreases every few repeats, so they were sure to keep them aligned as work progressed.
