My Mohair shawl

I made this one without a point in the back but it is extra wide as you can see, so that I can tie it loosely in front. It will also go around me and tie in the back like the Hap shawls the lace knitters are making. I am making a beaded fringe for it but it’s slow going. I think it will look fine when I get it done, however. Meanwhile, this shawl hardly weighs anything but is quite warm. It is 5 14″ triangles across the hypotenuse.

  1. Thank you. I’ll try to get a photo of the back when I get the fringe finished. It’s flat-ish… sort of a cross between a shawl and a stole.

  2. Wow, that did turn out beautiful!!! I can’t wait to see the beaded edging. I love that it’s long enough to loosely tie too! I can’t really see using a pin through it to hold it in place! Maybe a clasp or one of those rings though. You’re making me want to run out and get some fuzzy fluffy yarns now!!! 😀

  3. Thanks, Linda. I bought this yarn at the oregon Flock and Fiber Festival (OFFF) last year but the tags only have yarn content and yardage, no dealer name and I can’t remember. Maybe if she happens onto my blog she’ll let us know where to get more! lol
