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.
