This downloadable knitting pattern using basic knit and purl stitches with some M1 shaping to create a gorgeous floaty mini mohair cardigan. The techniques in the pattern are suitable for confident beginners, but please do bear in mind that it’s quite a lenthy project (estimated 50 hours to complete) and can feel a little fiddly to begin with.

Knit with two strands of yarn, it’s a lovely repetitive knit on circular needles, back and forth, so it means no sewing up at the end! With raglan style arms and gently ballooned sleeves, this cardigan is such a gorgeous accessory for the warmer months and looks beautiful layered in the cooler months

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.
