''When I saw the loops in this mohair, I immediately thought of a loose and textured top that I would like to wear on chilly evenings.
This model is designed to be worn with positive ease. The width of the sweater is exaggerated so that it falls smoothly on each side of the body.
As shorts tops are trendy, I opted for a crop top style that can be worn over a t-shirt and jeans outfit, or even a little dress.'' - Louise Robert

NOTES : This project is worked in garter stitch from the bottom up as a large rectangle. In the middle center of the rectangle, stitches are put on hold to create the neck opening, then new stitches are added to finish the work.
Then, the rectangle is folded in half and sides are assembled using invisible seam. Stitches are picked-up all around the neckline and sleeves to work ribs in the round.

I loved working this pattern. I had 3 skeins of DK Weight yarn I wanted to knit and this pattern filled the bill. Highly recommend it.
This pattern is so easy to follow and the sweater is beautiful and comfortable.
