Knoll Mohair Tweed (70% merino/30% mohair, 110m/120yds per 50g).

Skill level: ♦ ♦ ◊ ◊ 

Measurements: 50cm wide (at widest point) by approx. 132cm long.

My design ideas and advice: This pattern is one of eight pattern that I designed to launch especially at Yarndale 2017 along with the Knoll Mohair Tweed DK which was also just launched that year. The yarn is spun in Donegal so I named all the patterns using Irish words, Dóchas (pronounced DOE-hass) is the Irish word for hope.
This scarf is garter stitch with a little tiny detail at the edge to make it special. It is knitted “straight up” yet the way the stitches are increasing and decreasing it gives it a triangle shape. So much fun!
