Mountain Chalet Mohair Scarf

Mountain Chalet yarn ball is 450 metres of mohair mix in ombre colour tones. There are instructions on the yarn label for a basic scarf using straight knit stitches. I tried it using small pegs and it started curling as the stitches were too tight. I switched to large pegs and the resulting scarf was a little too light and loose. Maybe I should have used 2 strands of yarn instead of 1.

Anyway, the scarf is way too light to hold that massive fringe, so I had to rework the fringe into the entire length of the scarf creating a woolly mammoth look. It goes twice around the neck too.

If you are looking for a mother's day gift under $50, Spotlight has a new all purple loom kit for $39.90, $10 discount for VIP members. Add in their new knit magazine with over 60 projects at just $4.99, extra pick $2 and maybe some yarn balls.

If you have more money to spare, you can get a self-threading Brother sewing machine (I've always wanted that) $338 regular price, VIP $199. Add in a pair of sewing scissors @40% off and sewing kit $44.99 to help mom get started. Maybe a ream of fabric and some threads as well.
