I'm a big fan of knitting delicate mohair silk yarn in lace on bigger needles.
The resulting fabric is delicate and lightweight, yet has some body owing to the mohair fibers that fill in the spaces of the bigger stitches. This airiness is gorgeous worn around your neck and shoulders - you can practically sculpt it for a no-fuss, instantly chic and put-together look!
