Northern Lights Wrap

Lion Brand® Moonlight Mohair - Trellis®


13 stitches + 14 rows = 4" [10 cm] in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side) with 1 strand each of A and B held together.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


1 strand of each yarn is held together throughout.

With 1 strand each of A and B held together, cast on 39 stitches.
Rows 1-6 Knit.
Row 7 Knit.
Row 8 Knit 4, purl 31, knit 4.
Repeat Rows 7 and 8 until piece measures 69" [175.5 cm].
Repeat Rows 1-6.
Bind off all stitches. Weave in ends.


Wrap both yarns around an 8" [20.5 cm] wide piece of cardboard. Cut across one end. Use 2 strands of each yarn for each fringe. Fold strands in half and, with crochet hook, pull fold through Scarf, forming a loop. Pull ends of fringe through this loop. Pull to tighten. Place fringes approximately 1" [2.5 cm] apart across both narrow ends of Scarf.

Northern Lights Wrap Reviewed by Tamara on 2011-10-07 *****
I made the one pictured and my friend loved it so much that I gave it to her. I then made a second one with a substitute yarn for the trellis and it turned out beautiful. I did use different colors for the second one.
