Pattern description from Interweave Knits, Holiday 2007: “Theresa Schabes holds two slightly different shades of mohair together to knit her Wisp Afghan, giving a subtly variegated, handpainted look to the finished fabric. A simple knit/purl texture pattern, worked on a large scale, gives the afghan a complex woven appearance.”

Needles: Size 15 (10 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
