‘Careless Whisper’ Mini Mohair Cardigan
This delicate mini mohair cardigan is a perfect project to knit for Spring.
Using basic knit and purl stitches with some M1 shaping, this is a suitable pattern for confident beginners, and although quite a lenthy project (estimated 50hours to complete) it’s a lovely repetitive knit on circular needles, back and forth, so it means no sewing up at the end!
Knit with two strands of yarn, it can be 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.
So light to wear and super soft, you can pop it on over a t-shirt and jeans or a summer dress.
Top tip: This 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.
