This design was inspired by the beauty of the Baltic Sea.
All through my childhood, we would spend a few summer weeks in Baltic area, so I learned to love and appreciate this region as my second home. This scarf would be perfect for a walk along the Baltic shore :)
Mohair would be the best yarn for this design - it is feather light and keeps the shape and pattern design "visible". I used exactly 5 skeins of Louisa Harding La Salute, but if your style of knitting is more loose, get another skein.
