Splurge! Knit Mohair Scarf

Sure, it's fun to transform cheap yarn into something special -- but treat yourself now and then with top-of-the-line supplies. Just two luxe skeins can become an amazing scarf.

"Do you believe in magic?" You will when you garter-stitch a couple of Be Sweet Magic Balls (about $30 each) on big needles. The baby mohair yarn changes automatically, and the resulting scarf, including fringe, is dramatic at 90 inches long.
