Elle Tricote !

On the French site of  elletricote there are a few amazing paterns. The scarf 'Piora' , a triangular winter scarf in mohair and wool caught my attention.  Originally made in Lang wools, I thought it was a nice pattern to use up some of my gigantic pile of stash....

So, this is my version : I had some grey/brown mohair with  82 % pure wool. It changes from brown to beige to grey.  I added some  light grey bouclé from Bergère de France, and inbetween those yarns I knitted a fine ribbon in off white with a little bit of gold.

A nice warm item to put around your shoulders on a cold spring day.
There are 3  frills (is that the correct word?  We call them flosh) at each of the 3 points of the triangle.  I added a big pearl before I sewed them on. 

 All increases are at the sides and in the middle.
I like the change of colour, yarn and stiches. the rows with the 'balls' are fun to make.  It makes it a knit with a lot of alternation.
I finished it in 4 days, and I only knit in the evening in front of the TV.

it has a good length for me, I'm rather tall.
