The colors and texture remind me of powdered snow on an icy pond. With delicate hem detailing, this cozy mohair sweater will keep you warm in the coldest climates without any of the bulk. The pattern is worked bottom up in the round until the underarms. The top section is worked flat. The sleeves and turtleneck are then picked up and knit in the round after the shoulder seams are sewn together.
