Hold together a fingering weight yarn with a lace-weight silk mohair. Don't worry about getting a perfect match - a slight mismatch will add some depth. If you want a perfect match choose:
Merino Cloud + Silk Mohair by Artyarns in the same colourway, or
Krea Deluxe Cotton + Krea Deluxe Silk Mohair or
Le Petit Lambswool + Le Petit Silk & Mohair, or
Isager Spinni (or Alpaca 2) + Silk Mohair by Isager

Venus is a large parallelogram-shaped stole knitted in garter stitch, with a delicate seashell pattern and lines formed by slipped stitches. The shawl is worked from one short edge to the other, and the shape of the stole is formed by making decreases on the right edge and increases on the left edge. Marion Em loves the sea and playing in the waves, and the seashell pattern represents this.
