What about stocking stitch?
All very well, but the inevitable curling of the edges would be a problem.
OK, if it's going to curl anyway, what about knitting a tube?
No, it's not another pair of wristies. I'm going to try a tubular scarf. At this stage I'm thinking I'll join the ends so it can be looped around one or more times. The smooth outer texture of the knitting shows up the lustre and halo of the mohair beautifully and the subtle colour variations should be a feature. I'll see how it goes.
