SIZE: 11 x 55 inches/ 24 x 120 cm
MATERIALS: One skein Doucer et Soie, 25gm/225 yards/205 meters. 70% baby mohair, 30% silk. Color shown, 8525, a rather screaming purple. (You could easily substitute Kid Silk Haze. It's essentially the same yarn.)
One set US size ten/6mm needles. (I suggest bamboo or wood, to make the stitches easier to keep track of, but it's up to you.)
GAUGE: Doesn't matter.
Note: I did not allow for selvedge stitches when knitting this, so when a row begins with K3tog, I knit the first three stitches together. When there was no other action on the first stitch (for a regular knit row), I did slip the stitch.
DIRECTIONS: Cast on 48 stitches. Knit one row plain, then follow chart. ONLY THE RIGHT-SIDE ROWS ARE SHOWN ON THE CHART. For the wrong side, you knit back. REPEAT: KNIT THE RIGHT-SIDE ROWS FROM THE CHART AND KNIT BACK PLAIN ON THE WRONG SIDE. You will knit three repetitions of the chart on each row.
End on a wrong-side row, knit another row plain, then cast off.
BLOCKING: There are many fancy ways to do this, but I simply soaked the scarf in a sink full of room-temperature water with some Eucalan, then let it drain on a towel for a few minutes, pinned it out, and let it dry.
