Mohair and Ribbon Triangle Shawl

I've been playing a lot with simple pattern ideas for ribbon yarns.   I especially like ribbons combined with yarns of other textures - like mohair - so I knitted up a very quick triangle shawl to show both yarns off.


This is all you need:

Needles:  11 or larger [The bigger the needles, the bigger the shawl]

Yarn: 

The pattern is simple:

Cast on 3 with both yarns held together. 
Row 1:  Knit across with both yarns, increasing 1 stitch at the beginning and the end of the row. 
Row 2: Knit.
Row 3-4: With ribbon yarn only, repeat rows 1-2. 
Rows 5-6:  With mohair/ rayon yarn only, repeat rows 1-2. 

Continue on until you are almost out of yarn.  Bind off very loosely.  Cut and weave in ends.

  2. Have you ever thought of posting "how-to" video's? For people like me who need to learn to do this stuff but don't have anyone to teach them? You're great on camera. I think you'd do a great job.

  3. Janiel - Great idea! I need to find a camera and someone to run the camera ... and clean up a place in the studio to make vid and then we're good to go.
