I had two skeins of orange mohair, different but similar, that I wanted to combine to make a scarf. This is what I came up with. I submitted the pattern to Debbie Stoller author of the Stitch 'n Bitch series of books when I saw a request for submissions on KnitList. The pattern was just published in the 2008 Stich 'n Bitch Page a Day Calendar(October 17), and it's also here.

Hazy Paves Scarf

Size: 10” x 80”


MC: Anny Blatt Fine Kid (51% wool 49% kid mohair; 50 g/ 280 yds,) 1 skein orange
CC: Rowan Kidsilk Haze (70%superkid mohair 30% silk; 25 g/ 229 yds,) 1 skein marmalade

Note: You can also use just one color if preferred and one skein of Kidsilk Haze is enough.

Needles: US size 9 (5.5 mm) preferably wood or bamboo.

Gauge: Approx. 12 sts = 4” in pattern stitch.

Pattern Stitch: Adapted from ‘Paving Stones’ stitch from “A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns” by Barbara G. Walker. (Multiple of 4 stitches plus 1)
Note: Carry unused color yarn along right side of scarf, and also carry cast-on tail up left side of scarf splicing new piece on when necessary. This will make both sides look the same. Blocking the scarf will change it from bumpy to flat and even out the stitches. To block, hand wash and pin on flat surface.

With CC yarn cast on 29 stitches.
Row 1 (RS): With CC purl entire row.
Row 2: With MC, knit.
Row 3: With MC, knit.
Row 4: With MC, purl.
Row 5: With MC, knit.
Row 6: With CC knit 2,* drop next stitch and unravel it down 4 rows. Insert needle in CC stitch 5 rows down and knit it together with the 4 loose strands, knit 3*,Repeat from *, end knit 2.
Row 7: With CC, purl.
Row 8: With MC, knit.
Row 9: With MC, knit.
Row 10: With MC, purl.
Row 11: With MC, knit.
Row 12: With CC knit 4,* drop next stitch and unravel it down 4 rows. Insert needle in CC stitch 5 rows down and knit it together with the 4 loose strands, knit 3*,Repeat from *, end knit 4.

Repeat these 12 rows until desired length is obtained. End on row 6, and then cast off purl wise.
