‘Careless Whisper’ Mini Mohair Cardigan
A perfect Spring knit kit! This Mini Mohair cardigan is light and delicate, and is a great pattern for confident beginners or intermediate knitters.
Cardigans are always popular with our LAD’s and this one is a beauty. Knit on circular needles (back and forth) it has raglan style arms with gentle balloon sleeves. Using the mini mohair yarn gives it a soft and almost transluscent feel to it – just so dreamy!
Using basic knit and purl stitches with some M1 shaping, although quite a lenthy project (estimated 50hours to complete) it’s a lovely repetitive knit and because it’s knit on circular needles it means there is no sewing up at the end!
The Mini Mohair cardigan is knit with two strands of yarn so it may feel a little fiddly to start with, but it’s such a beautifully relaxing pattern and the finished piece is so worth it! With raglan style arms and gently ballooned sleeves, this cardigan is such a gorgeous accessory for the warmer months.
You can make the cardigan as long or as short as you like to suit your style. The kit has yarn to make a cardigan from sizes 6-28 to just below waist length – if you’d like it longer then you may need more yarn.
So light to wear and super soft, you can pop it on over a t-shirt and jeans or a summer dress. Our small doer-uppers look lovely as a fastener on it too.
Top tip: The Mini Mohair cardigan pattern uses two strands of yarn at the same time – find both ends of the same ball (one on the outside, one just inside the middle), place them together and knit as if they are one yarn.
Why not try: Using two strands of different colours for a unique look or even go striped with two or more colours, or even try an ombre look.
