Interpretations Wrap Scarf & Poncho


This is the scarf that will get you stopped in the street!
Our Interpretations scarf is knit in the round with light weight mohair and contrasting row of a bulkier yarn. It's an updated version of a thick & thin scarf popular almost ten years ago. And as you can see, you can interpret the look in many ways. The scarf is subtly shaped to improve the drape. The poncho adds length and more dramatic shaping.

  • Gauge/Yarn
    The project uses super fine mohair and a contrasting yarn. You will need one ball of each. The mohair has so much yardage you can knit two scarves from it. The bulky yarn should have at least 95 yards.

    Yarns used in samples: Kid Seta mohair/silk, Crystal Palace Mochi Plus. Our favorite contrast yarn is Mochi Plus because the colors change about one a row for a nice look. You can also use 2 balls of Chunky Mochi.
  • Difficulty
    This project is good for advance beginner knitters. There's no purling. Knitting the super fine mohair on large needles takes some practice.
  • Sizes
    One size scarf and two sizes for the poncho but very easy to modify.
  • Notions
    Standard knitting notions: circular needles, tapestry needle and markers.
