Scout Walker Cozy

scarf and scout walker

BC wanted to show you how his Lego StarWars Scout Walker shoots.

I wanted to show you my mohair scarf.

The pattern is Cat’s Eye from A Treasury of Knitting Patterns, Barbara Walker.  It is a 4-row pattern for multiples of 4 stitches.

Also, I made the ends of the scarf slightly frilly.  I cast on 3 times the number of stitches in the scarf.  On the first row, I knit two together all the way across.  Then the next row, I knit one, then knit two together, repeating this two stitches all the way across.  The next row starts the main scarf body.

I love how soft and light mohair is but I won’t let it touch my neck or face.  This scarf will only be used under collars or over turtlenecks.  It is beautiful but oh so itchy!

  1. The scarf looks so light and airy. I have the same issue with mohair – lovely, but can’t wear it without multiple layers. Aaaaw – my son was really into Legos and Star Wars too!

  2. Awesome Scout Walker and amazing scarf! I’m with you here about the itchiness of mohair – I just can’t have it close to my neck or face or I’d get the real horrors. But it’s so beautiful indeed!
