Mohair Boucle scarf

When I was in Melbourne, Australia a few months ago my friends and I made a trek out to Marta’s yarn store. It was a truly lovely place, full of Marta’s hand dyed yarns.

Marta was there to help us with our yarn selections and displayed infinite patience while we ran around her store like 6 year olds hopped up on Dr.pepper.

I picked up a center pull ball of about 8 ounces of Mohair boucle, dyed in a chocolately brown color.

I just finished knitting it up into a scarf. I used 22 stitches across on size 10 needles and cranked along in garter stitch until I ran out of yarn. The yarn has such an interesting texture that the garter rows aren’t that visible in the finished scarf.

It was the first time that i have ever knit anything with a boucle yarn, and i am really satisfied with the feel of the finished object. It was a little tricky to knit with. Let’s just say that I am happy that I did not drop any stitches and have to look for them.
