This triangular shawl features one strand of fingering weight yarn held together with one strand of mohair silk. Each section features a different knit/purl texture as you build the shawl from the center to the border. The sections are picked up and knitted together in a modular fashion for a seamless construction method. Mohair Mixer is a great stash buster to showcase smaller amounts of yarn.
