You must have a public Instagram account to select the second option.

Pattern Intro:
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.

Skills Needed:
Pickup stitches, short row stitches, set-in sleeves, selvedge edge, knitting in the rnd, knitting with two yarns held double.

The sample in the picture was made using a finger weight yarn and mohair lace yarn held double.
