Mother's Day Scarf

My mom came to Brooklyn this past weekend for Mother's Day, and she left fully stocked with knit goods. Well, maybe "fully stocked" is an overstatement, but she did leave with this scarf:

Its a basic feather and fan pattern. I followed the pattern from Scarf Style word for word because I am a feather+fan newbie. Here's a close up.

The yarn is Cascade Bollicine Sissi, which is a variegated mohair. I used only one skein, with leftovers.

Mom also made off with my Ribby Cardi. To tell the truth, it never really did anything for me, kinda short and uneven at the bottom, and I was thinking about undoing it. But it looked a lot better on Mom. and even though she is from Arizona, she is still always cold.

I just love when knitwear finds a good home.

That is GORGEOUS! My roommate just bought some of this yarn and has been wondering what to do with it... I will definitely make the suggestion :-)

Beautiful scarf. I'm glad your mom liked your ribby cardi and it found a good home. What's next.

Beautiful, beautiful scarf!

Another happy mom! The scarf is gorgeous!

Looks lovely! I really love the feather & fan, I got on a big kick with that stitch last year... and I still love it! :)

What a lucky momma! The mohair is positively yummy, and, as you know, I was a big fan of the color you chose for your Ribby, so I'm glad someone will wear it. :)

Very nice! I've done this pattern with different yarns...it always turns out nice! Lucky mom!

Gorgous scarf! The colors are so lovely! Glad your mom was super happy! You also have great books... That scarf style book looks like it has some good patterns in it.. I might have to check it out next time I am at the book store!

Beautiful scarf! And how happy is your ribby cardi to find a good home and be worn?

the stitch definition really stands out with that yarn -- it looks lovely.

The scarf is super pretty and what a fast job you did! I'm sure your mom loved it.
