This scarf and the mohair of which it is made has become one of the favourites at our yarn tasting sessions of new yarns for winter 2011.
Easy yet elegant cables on both sides worked in Estelle's KIDLUXE chunky mohair that has a range of gorgeous colours AND exhibits minimal shedding!
200g of chunky weight mohair (or any chunky yarn really).
