Hello! I won a few skeins of this soft, misty, almost magical brushed mohair in the October Monthly Challenge hosted by the gregarious Maryanne from Woolhogs fame and WOW! At first I was speechless - what is a cotton lover to do with mohair yarns?! It is so delicate and raw simultaneously that I was completely in awe.
Inspiration struck after I touched the strands, played with the yarn between my fingers and put mood boards together. I started dreaming up endless ideas, possibilities and patterns so utterly suitable to the raw look of the yarn, but finally settled on a mesh pattern.
Mood-boards put together from my Raw Rustic Pinterest
Yarn: African Expressions Love Brushed Mohair
Hook Size: 7mm
Pattern: liveinternet.ru nr 10 as found on Pinterest
In order to prevent total chaos, I imported the pattern into the Doceri app on the Ipad and colour coded the rows as seen in the below image.
