Description from Knitty.com:

Here’s a quick and funky scarf (or stole, with a shake!) based on Debbie New’s Scribble Lace technique. The thick-and-thin yarn forms great twisty loops in the luscious kid-mohair-and-silk fabric. The knitting is straightforward, but managing the thin yarn on the big needles requires a little experience.

About yarn choices: any combination of really thick and really thin will give an interesting effect. However, a smooth, thick yarn will show the loops better than a bumpy yarn. The mohair is a good choice for the thin yarn because the slight furriness helps the loose stitches keep their shape.
