Getting more out of mohair

One skein of mohair was enough to make this neck warmer. I knitted it in vine lace stitch using thicker needles than indicated: 7 in stead of 5 mm / US 10.5 or 11 in stead of 8. I got the most out of the amount of yarn this way, but better still it does more justice to the mohair - it's hairier.

Closed with two satin ribbons the neck warmer is warm and chic at the same time. I listed it in my Etsy shop - if you're interested :)
