Brushed Mohair Shawl with Tassels

Brushed Mohair Shawl with Tassels

Approximate size: 54 inches wide, 38 inches long at longest point (measurements do not include tassel)

2 skeins of Three Waters Farm Brushed Mohair yarn, 250 skeins each.

Size 11 needle

CO 4 stitches.

Row 1: Knit 2, yarn over, knit to end of row.

Row 2: Knit 2, yarn over, knit to end of row.

Continue in this manner until you have knit one skein. Before beginning second skein, make 3 tassels and set aside. Attach new leader, and continue knitting as before, knitting until shawl is approximately 54 inches wide.

Bind off loosely. (It is helpful to bind off with a larger needle to keep it loose. We used a size 15 needle.)

Superlong Scarf Wrap

Materials:  One Three Waters Farm Superfluity Kit
Size 15 circular needle (24 inch or longer)

Every row is a knit row.  (Garter stitch)

Loosely CO 100 stitches with the worsted weight yarn or the Thick n’ Thin yarn. Knit one row. At beginning of next row, cut the old yarn, leaving an 8 inch tail.  Tie new yarn (whichever color/type you prefer) to old yarn and snug the knot.  Knit one row.

Use yarns interchangeably until you reach your desired size, keeping in mind that, due to the difference in yardage between the yarns, you will need to use some yarns more sparingly than others.

Continue in this way, changing yarn every row until the scarf/wrap is the width you want. Bind off loosely. Behold!
