After all the holiday knitting was done, I wanted to treat myself to a quick, warm, yet pretty project. This is practically the easiest thing to knit, basically a rectangle folded and sewn into a cowl. For all you Ravely members, the pattern is Wrap Thingie by Strikkelise, though I changed the stitch pattern from seed to American moss. The yarn is Lion Brand Moonlight Mohair, a strand of variegated mohair twisted with a sparkly strand of manmade stuff.
Up close, the yarn knits like this. Pretty! I have to say, it's mohair, so the scratchy factor is there, but after washing, like with all my animal fibers, I gave it a final rinse with some all natural hair conditioner, rosemary mint by 360, and it softened a lot.
