Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, increase, decrease
  • 5 into 1 decrease explained in the pattern

Pattern Description:

A short little neck scarf that takes just one ball of fine mohair and is quick to make.
I made 2 samples: a narrow one on 10 mm (US 15) needles in RichMore "Excellent Mohair Count 5"; the other wider but on smaller needles - 6.5 mm (US 10.5), in Filatura Di Crosa "Gioiello".
A similar yarn could be used instead for the same effect.
One ball of Count 5 mohair makes a scarf 24 cm x 110 cm, and a 50 gm ball of Gioiello makes one 34 cm x 95 cm. However, you can make this wider and longer if you want a wrap instead of a scarf.

The pattern also looks great in a variety of other yarns and needle sizes - see pic for a few other ideas. ?
It's reversible, very open and lacy, and makes a lovely scarf that would make a great gift!

The stitch pattern is easily learnt being only a 6 row and 6 stitch repeat.


12 sts, 12 rows to 10 cm in Matrix Stitch pattern on 10 mm (US 15) needles, using RichMore Count 5 mohair.
or 17 sts, 20 rows on 6.5 mm (US 10.5) needles using Gioiello.
