With the right stripe pattern, any two yarns can seamlessly fade together. But that doesn’t make it any easier to find a pair that you like. The added strand of mohair ensures that even the strangest combinations have something in common. This project combines the unique, soft texture and halo of mohair with other yarns. The result is a fabric that looks almost as if it is glowing. Adding a strand of mohair to any project can mellow out harsh color contrasts and make the whole palette more harmonious. The hazy halo also helps obscure any hard edges and awkward color transitions. The photo of my shawl contrasted against the plain skein of blue sock yarn shows how the single strand of chartreuse mohair tints the final project.

Knit on size 9 needles, this is a quick project that provides enough warmth for winter wear. The Tinted Triangle is a good intermediate level project. It contains a few types of increases for the shaping and the colorwork is formed with stripes.
