Off the Hook: Mohair Wrap

british mohair wrapRemember that gorgeous hank of Mohair I showed you from West Yorkshire Spinners? Well, here it is after 4 hours of relaxing crochet. This beautiful wrap, pictured here drying in the sunshine after a quick soak in Eucalan* is so fine and yet so sturdy I’m sure you’ll see me wearing it a lot this summer. More photos will follow, but I wanted to show it off. The pattern is very simple and that too will be shared soon. Using a beautiful yarn, combined with a simple stitch makes this an ideal beginner project. Like many mohair yarns, this one is almost impossible to “rip back”, so stick to a simple stitch or concentrate hard to avoid frustration!

You can find the full range of colours available on the West Yorkshire Spinners website (where you’ll also find their British 4 ply and DK yarns, I’m a big fan and hope to have a pair of socks knitted up in their Signature 4 ply to show you soon.)

We usually think of scarves and wraps as winter projects, but this simple wrap would be ideal for holidays, summer weddings or even for those cooler evenings when we shall all be sitting outside enjoying theĀ  British summer …

*Eucalan is a rinse free formula soak, ideal for blocking and washing your handknits. I don’t use anything else!
