Ziggy by Chrissy Gardiner

Ziggy is a floaty mohair scarf in an asymmetric zigzag lace pattern.  This lightweight scarf is perfect for our mild Pacific Northwest winters.  The mohair blend yarn is surprisingly toasty, however, and will keep the chill off your neck even in the freezing Midwestern winters I grew up in.  I prefer my scarves a little shorter (to keep them out of reach of car doors, grasping toddler hands, etc.), but this pattern is a simple repeat that can be knit as long as you’d like.
