Mo' Better Blues
mo’ better blues
Several mohair yarns in shades of blue combine to create a wrap that is the ultimate in sumptuous texture and color.
Mohair is high on my list of yummy must-use yarns. I love its combination of raw yet fluffy texture and the wide range of colors it comes in. For this shrug, I elongated the front to create a long scarf that wraps around the neck and tucks into the front. It’s both dramatic and extremely wearable.
