In Newfoundland English, mauzy (pronounced “maw-zee”) refers to warm, damp and foggy weather. On a mauzy day there is usually light rain, a gentle mist, and a soft breeze from the sea. Condensation beads upon the rocks and trees, and it’s as if the whole world has gone a little fuzzy.

Referencing traditional Victorian-era smoke ring patterns, Mauzy is a versatile accessory that can be worn around the neck, over the head, and even across the shoulders like a mini poncho (if your gauge is loose enough). The picot edge cast on and i-cord bind off help keep the edges from being too tight while adding a delicate finishing touch to the work.

Mauzy is knit seamlessly in the round with simple lace and stockinette sections in two blocks of colour. The resulting fabric is very light but incredibly warm, the halo of mohair making it look as if your knitting was kissed by fog.

Treat yourself to some gorgeous hand-dyed silk mohair and choose a DK yarn with a supple hand because this just may be the most magical and versatile accessory in your handmade wardrobe yet.
