Knitting pattern for Dahlia mohair sweater
Dahlia mohair is an airy and light dream of a sweater with a beautiful texture pattern, which gives a pretty texture in a beautiful material. You get a beautiful sweater that fits perfectly over a t-shirt or as a top with a pair of jeans or your favorite skirt. We have invented some new increase techniques that you will learn as you go and the entire sweater is worked in a simple pattern, resulting in a pretty, classic look.
It is easy to knit, top-down, which lets you fit the sweater to your measurements as you go. The design is slightly oversize in fit, with a positive ease of approx. 15-20 cm (6-8 inches) compared to your body measurements, and features deep armholes and 3/4 long sleeves. The pattern also describes how to knit long sleeves if you wish.
