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.


One size
2 balls
Scarf = 10 x 70 inches, not including fringe


Magic Ball from Be Sweet 100% baby mohair with ribbons; 1 3/4 oz. (50 g); 109 yds. (100 m); worsted weight -- #MG13 Orange Carnival

-- Size 35 (19 mm) needles OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
-- Crochet hook


7 sts = 4" (10 cm) in Garter st (row gauge varies depending on yarn type).


Note: Magic Ball is a combination of several types of yarn knotted together continuously in one skein.


Cast on 18 sts. Work even in Garter st (k every row) until piece measures 70 inches from beg. Bind off.

For each short edge, cut 48 strands of yarn, each 14 inches long. For each fringe, place 4 strands together. Fold the strands in half, and using a crochet hook, knot 12 fringes evenly spaced along each edge. Trim ends.
