Knitting from mohair

Mohair is the favorite yarn of many fashionistas and a truly unconquered top of the majority of knitting admirers, because working with this yarn is quite complicated and requires increased attention. Pullovers, cardigans, blouses, hats, stoles, jackets or snoods - all this will look original, if you choose mohair for knitting.

This yarn attracts novice needlewomen with its beauty and characteristic visual and tactile qualities - lightness, softness, weightlessness, and professional knitters love this yarn made from Angora goat wool for the opportunity to perform interesting work and sophisticated models.

The universality of mohair is not only in a rich color palette, because this yarn perfectly absorbs dye, but also in convenience socks both in a cold season, and in warm: in the winter, it warms and does not freeze, and in summer it absorbs moisture and protects from overheating. And the most pleasant quality of yarn, which is precisely why many people choose knitting for knitting, is hypoallergenic - it does not irritate even the most sensitive skin. Here it is important to know that mohair often includes no more than 83% of Angora goat wool, the rest of the composition is complemented with sheep wool, silk, and acrylic.

This soft material is divided into three subspecies:

  • Kid Mohair (Kid Mohair) - the most delicate thin mohair, which is preferred when knitting with laces;
  • Gatling (Goatling) - more dense yarn obtained from kids up to two years, which is selected for dense patterns on a variety of models of knitted things;
  • Adult Mohair - thick thick threads that are good at work with uncomplicated large viscous.

The final result depends on the choice of yarn, because if you choose a dense mohair for delicate patterns, the product will look inorganic, and you will most likely not want to wear it.

Knitting mohair knitting patterns - schemes and description

Professionals argue that from mohair you can link almost any model of clothes, you need only to find the right patterns and a description of the progress of work. Knitting from mohair can be greatly facilitated If you use the golden rule: for thin yarn to use thin knitting needles, for thick - large ones. The tension of the mohair threads must be constant, otherwise as a result the thing will be uneven, loose and stretched.

A fundamentally important point in this work is the correctly chosen pattern and description of knitting from mohair with knitting needles. Let's try to consider several options for schemes of different degrees of complexity for different models of clothing.

Cap for women

Perhaps this is not the most original model of mohair knitting hats, but this is a proven classic that suits both women and children, and even young people, because this model of hats is now popular among men. Knitting mohair with knitting needles for women is not difficult, you only need to carefully study the scheme and description of the work.

Knit hat with jacquard stripes on the girth of the head 54-57 (57-60) cm

Width and length of the cap from mohair: 22 (24) cm.

For this model, you will need 2 types of yarn: 1) 1 skein of gray (main color), 1 skein of white (finishing color 1) 100% wool; 100 g / 575 m; 2) 1 hank of green (finishing color 2) 66% mohair, 4% wool, 30% polyamide; 50 g / 500 m; and also circular needles No. 4 and No. 5.5 40 cm long.

Work process:

Knit gum alternately 1 persons., 1 out.

Facial surface: in circular rows only knit facial loops.

Jacquard pattern: knit according to the pattern of the front satin. The distribution of colors is indicated in the description.

Knitting density: 20 p. X 19 p. = 10 x 10 cm, connected by jacquard pattern on the needles No. 5,5.

Pattern knit in 2 threads = finishing thread 1 + finishing thread 2, taken together.

Scheme and description:

On the needles number 4 dial a thread of the primary color 72 (80) p. And knit in a circle 18 p. rubber band.

Go to the needles number 5.5 and run 3 p. front stitch, while in the 1st p. uniformly add 0 (4) p. = 72 (84) p.

Next, knit according to scheme 1, then run 3 p. the thread of the main color and continue to work on the scheme 2. Finish 3 p. thread primary color.


continue to knit with the thread of the main color, at the same time close every 6th point (knitting 2 items together with the front one) = 60 (70) item.

Through 5 p., Connected with the main thread, knit 1 p., Alternating 1 p. With the thread of the main color and 1 p. With the thread of the finishing color.

Next, knit until the end of the finishing thread: in the 4th p. after decreasing close every 5 p. = 48 (56) p., knit 3 p. front, closing every 4 p. = 36 (42) p., knit 3 p. facial, closing every 3rd n. = 24 (28) n., knit 3 p. facial, closing every 2nd n. = 12 (14) n.

Pull the thread through the remaining loops. The ends of the threads fasten.

Make a pompom from a finishing thread and sew it to the cap.

Knitting sweater

Mohair sweater knitting can be a variety of variations, from the modest and classic, to bold and outrageous. No wonder designers and couturiers from around the world love to use mohair yarn when embodying the most daring sketches! At the same time, mohair models of sweaters can look both joking, and coquettish, and gently, and strictly. That is why you should try to knit at least one model of mohair with knitting needles.

Front rows - front loops, purl rows - purl loops.


The product is knitted from the top down from the neckline to the armholes on the circular knitting needles in a circle, then from the armholes are knitted in a circle in front and back. Sleeves knit from proym rows in the forward and reverse directions on the straight knitting needles.

Knit openwork pattern for the scheme and description:

1 off: 1 knock off, as a front one, knit the next loop with the front one and pull the loop through the knitted one.
Stripes: Knit on the needles № 4 - 12 p. openwork pattern of yarn 2 in 1 thread, then on the needles number 3.5 - 12 p. openwork pattern yarn 1 in 1 thread. These 24 rows are constantly repeated.
Knitting density: 22 p. X 30 p. = 10 x 10 cm, connected with an openwork pattern (according to the scheme) with the effect of stripes.

Perform work:

Start from the neckline. On circular needles No. 2.5 with a yarn of 2 to 2 threads, dial 142 (150) 150 (158) 158 p. And knit 2 p. In a circle. purl. Next, knit only in 1 thread.

Go to the circular needles number 3. Mark the beginning of raglnyh increments: from right to left, count 45 (47) 47 (49) 49 points (= back), mark the next 2 points, count 23 (25) 25 (27) 27 points (= right sleeve), mark the following 2 p., Count 44 (46) 46 (48) 48 p. (= Before), mark the next 2 p., Count 23 (25) 25 (27) 27 p. (= Left sleeve), mark the first and last loops row.


Perform the following circular row on the circular knitting needles No. 3, then move to the circular knitting needles No. 4 and perform the 1st strip of yarn 2.

Next, knit alternately on the needles No. 3.5 (yarn 1) and on the needles No. 4 (yarn 2).

Continue to knit in a circle with an openwork pattern (distribute the pattern for each part separately). 1st p. openwork pattern start and finish (for the back, front and sleeves) according to the arrows in the diagram.

At the same time, perform raglary increments - 1 increment on both sides of 2 marked loops = a total of 8 increments in a row.

Regular increments repeat in every 2nd p. On the marked loops knit facial surface. The added loops should be included in the pattern as soon as it is possible (before that, they should be knitted with a facial texture). At the same time knit strips, changing needles and yarn (see above). Stripes continue until the end of the product.

In total, perform 26 (28) 30 (32) 34 raglannyh increments on each side = 98 (104) 108 (114) 118 paragraphs for the back and front and 77 (83) 87 (93) 97 paragraphs for the sleeves. The number of loops includes 2 marked loops, which are taken into account when calculating the loops for each part.

The hinges of the sleeves temporarily leave and continue to work on the hinges of the back and front.

Back and before:

Knit on circular needles in a circle. On both sides, dial 3 (4) 6 (6) 8 points for armholes = on the spokes 202 (216) 228 (240) 252 points and continue the work in a circle.

Knit with an openwork pattern stripes on those loops that can enter the pattern — there can be loops on both sides that do not enter into the pattern, they can be knitted with a face stitch. Knit until 8 rapports of stripes are made from the neck of the whole (= 12 p. Openwork pattern with yarn 2, 12 p. Of yarn pattern 1 = total 24 p., Knitted 8 times). The last band knit yarn 1. Loops close.


The number of loops = 77 (83) 87 (93) 97 p., Knit with needles No. 4 in rows in the forward and reverse directions. At the beginning and at the end of the row, dial 2 (2) 3 (3) 4 loops for the armhole = 81 (87) 93 (99) 105 loops.

Continue work in rows in the forward and reverse directions. Knit with an openwork pattern stripes on those loops that can enter the pattern — there can be loops on both sides that do not enter into the pattern, they can be knitted with a face stitch. All ranks start and finish individuals. chrome loop.

After 2 cm from the armhole, begin to perform a decrease at the beginning and at the end of the next persons. a number of: individuals. chrome., 2 p. knit together the front, knit up to the last 3 p. on the needles, 1 turn, persons. chrome

Repeat the decrease in every 10th p. (8th p.) Alternately in every 6th p. and in every 8th p. (in every 6th p.) alternately in every 4th p. and in every 6th p. - just perform 13 (16) 18 (21) 23 times = 55 (55) 57 (57) 59 p.

Knit until there are 8 rapports of stripes in total (= 12 p. Openwork pattern with yarn 2, 12 p. With yarn pattern 1 = total 24 p., Knitted 8 times), both on the back and in front, + 1 additional strip of yarn 2. Sleeve length from armhole = 44 cm. Close all loops.

The second sleeve is knit similarly.

Assembly of mohair jacket:

Run the seams of the sleeves. Sleeves on the lower sections sew in the armhole. Neckline tie 1 p. Comm. Art. yarn 2 in 1 thread. The product should be washed, laid out and left to dry.

Mohair pullover - master class for beginners

An easy-to-wear pullover made from mohair will always come in handy. In addition, this free cut hides any figure flaws, and how it warms, despite the openwork!

Pullover can be knit in the following sizes:38/42

This will require:Yarn (43% natural wool, 22% silk, 22% mohair, 13% yak wool; 150 m / 25 g) - 200 g color. rosewood; circular needles number 4.

Patterns and schemes

Openwork pattern: The number of loops is a multiple of 18 + 11 + 2 edging = knit acc. pattern. On it are given facial rows. In the purl ranks all the loops knit purl or acc. instructions, nakida constantly knit purl.

Start with 1 edge and loop before rapport, repeat repeat constantly, finish with loops after rapport and 1 edge. Constantly repeat the 1-16th rows.

Patent edge:Tie the 2 loops in the front row with the front loops, remove the 2 loops in the purse row as in the back loops, and stretch the thread before work.

Elastic: An even number of loops = in the front and back rows between the edge knit alternately 1 face, 1 purse.

Knitting density:20 p. X 33.5 p. = 10 x 10 cm

Important:Due to the large number of loops, we recommend knitting on circular needles in rows in the forward and reverse direction. Pullover knit a single canvas without shoulder seams, starting from the back. Arrow on the pattern = knitting direction.


Perform work:

Type 102 loops for the back on the spokes and tie 7 cm for the strap with an elastic band, finish with 1 face row and in this last face row, evenly distribute, add 19 points = 121 points.

Then first tie 1 purl row to purl. This series is not taken into account in subsequent calculations.

Continue the work with an openwork pattern.

After 15 cm = 50 rows from the initial row, add 1 x 1 pt for the lateral bevel on both sides, then in each 2 nd row 30 x 1 p. Acc. pattern = 183 p.

After 55 cm = 184 rows from the initial row, the shoulder line is reached.

After that, leave the last 91 loops for the left shelf and continue the work for the right shelves on the first 92 loops of the row as follows: edge, 90 points with an openwork pattern, from the transverse thread add 1 face cross and this loop, and also knit the last loop of the row edge 2 loops = 93 p.

Through 54.5 cm = 183 rows from the shoulder line, i.e. after the facial row, leave the loop.

Then put into operation the left 91 loop for the left shelf and knit in the mirror image, while in the 1st row along the right edge (= edge of the neck) add 2 s. = 93 s.

Through 54.5 cm = 183 rows from the shoulder line also leave loops.

Then tie 1 purl row with a single cloth on both shelves as follows: knit 67 loops of the left shelf, place the first 26 loops of the right shelf behind the last 26 loops of the left shelf and constantly knit 1 loop of the right shelf with 1 loop of the left shelf together with the inside, then knit the remaining 67 loops right shelf = 160 p.

After 55 cm = 184 rows from the shoulder line, knit for the strip with an elastic, while in the 1st row, evenly distribute, reduce 58 p. = 102 p. With the width of 7 cm, close all the loops according to the pattern.


Run the side seams, leaving the upper 22 cm open for armholes.
