Sunday Cardigan Mohair Edition
Yarn package for Sunday Cardigan Mohair Edition from PetiteKnit. With this yarn option, the jacket is knitted in 3 threads Lace mohair/silk. Unfortunately, we do not have the rights to sell the recipe, but you can find it here:
If you want to knit the sweater longer than the pattern suggests, either on the body or the sleeves, you must go up a size.
Sunday Cardigan Mohair Edition is knitted from top to bottom, back and forth on the circular needle. The support piece consists of ribs with built-in increases..
Sunday Cardigan Mohair Edition should have a range of motion ((positive ease)of approx. 15-25 cm in relation to your chest measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL correspond to a chest measurement of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm, measured on own body. The measurements of the finished cardigan are indicated on the front of the pattern. Measure yourself before you start knitting, to assess which size will suit you best. If you e.g. measures 93 cm around the chest (or the widest part of your upper body), you should knit size M. A sweater in size M has an excess width of 111 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of movement (positive ease) of 18 cm.

Mohair's softness depends primarily on the quality of the fibers. Superkid mohair comes from the first sorting, and is the softest and thinnest fibers you get from the mohair goat. The second sort is usually what is called kid mohair, and is also soft, but not as soft as the superkid mohair. Superkid mohair can be used close to the skin, and provides incredibly light and airy garments. The silk gives the yarn a lovely, exclusive mother-of-pearl sheen.
The yarn is thin, so it is very suitable as a companion thread for e.g. many of PetiteKnit's designs. This yarn is well suited for ego knitting and children's knitting.
75% superkid mohair/25% mulberry silk
We recommend that you knit every other round from different skeins to camouflage any color differences. The more colorvariety in the yarn, the more important is this. Kimmie Munkholm shows this nicely when knitting circular in this video, and when you knit back and forth in this video.
If you don't want to knit every other round from different skeins (this is done at your own risk 😉), it is recommended to do this a few rounds when changing yarn. This applies regardless of the color of the yarn.
Please note that the yarn may contain excess colour. Therefore, wash separately the first time.
All knitted garments should be stored flat.
