Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 405 – La Gran Pom Pom Scarf


This week's pattern, knit in La Gran, appeared in the very first issue of Knitscene – Fall 2005. Designed by Kristin Nicholas, this fun and whimsical scarf is the perfect project to play with color. We've re-knit the scarf in three different color combinations to show just a few of many the possibilities.

In honor of their 10th Anniversary, Knitscene and Interweave Press are hosting a 10-week giveaway. Ten winners will be randomly selected and notified by 9/1/15 to receive heaps of awesome knitting goodies. Readers may submit one entry per day for this contest. Follow the link above to take part.

The Yarn

La Gran
78.4% Mohair, 17.3% Wool,
4.3% Nylon

Our flagship yarn, La Gran has been part of the Classic Elite Yarns collection since the very beginning in the mid 1980's. With plenty of colors to choose from, you're sure to find just the right one for your special project!

Mohair is fine and lustrous and has many of the good qualities of wool. It can absorb moisture yet still feel warm and dry and mohair shows color beautifully! Lightweight and airy, La Gran is spun with a strong binder–a combination of wool and nylon–to secure the fluffier mohair fibers.
