The Mirage Scarf was first published by Three Irish Girls for their Eunice's Choice yarn club in June. It is a light and airy design perfect for summer or those first cool fall days.
This scarf is worked flat with fingering weight yarn and larger needles, which creates a drapey, lightweight overall effect. It features an all-over zig-zag mesh lace pattern with an interesting twist on either end of the scarf: both ends are semi-circular.
There are many many mesh scarf patterns out there. This simple rounded edge adds a little unique touch to make this scarf worth knitting.
The Mirage Scarf works well with any semisolid or variegated colorways. The yarn featured in this pattern is Three Irish Girls' McClellan Fingering. One of my all-time favorite yarns. It consists of 60% merino, 30% bamboo and 10% nylon.... a beautiful combination of softness (from the merino), drape (from the bamboo) and strength (from the nylon). I love knitting with this yarn for accessories. It feels wonderful on the fingers and needles.

The colorway is Arabian Nights.
