And the temple juniper mohair

The second pattern that's coming out this month is this airy scarf worked in Temple Juniper mohair. It's knitted in a semi-solid colourway on a bias, creating those wide lacy columns you see at the top.

This one was particularly interesting to work on because mohair is not something I've worked with a lot, it moves differently compared to my go-to wool or silk blend yarns. Mohair lace is a very fine fibre that if worked at a loose enough gauge will create an appearance of lace even when worked in Stocking stitch and so, I tried to balance the yarn overs with some solid ground in between to make sure that the pattern shows the yarn beautifully. 
The lace needed to be worked at a loose gauge to showcase the haziness, I'm am so pleased with the way it turned out.
