I have five skeins of Prisma Mohair and have no idea what to do with them. Any suggestions? Below are pictures. I would like a shawl but am not sure if I have enough. Any suggestions??:shrug:I got them on a clearance rack. I love the colors!!!:happydance:$2 a skein:cheering:
Lovely! I think there is adequate for a shawl…what is the yardage?
How about Wisp from the new knitty? It looks like such a fun versatile pattern and you don’t need that much yardage I don’t think!
I have used mohairs like this and you can go to quite a high needle size and are better with higher than lower on a shawl because all the fibres will catch on smaller needles and a smaller stitch size and you not only use more yarn but the pattern starts to blur. I would do a quick swatch with larger needles and see if you like the general look. Really lovely stuff and what a bargain!
That’s a lovely pattern Brandilyne…on the really wispy mohairs I find the pattern can get lost a little and the detail of the beautiful pattern you offered may fall away…but worth a swatch for sure and it doesn’t use many balls!
That’s beautiful yarn. The colors are so vibrant, but don’t make any mistakes because you can’t frog it.
nadja…I’ve been able to undo a row of stitches but got it’s been hard work…you’re right…the yarn fibres get entangled. Others here have said putting the knitting in the fridge for a while helps. I’ve never tried that.
