Sunday Cardigan Mohair Edition
Yarn kit for Sunday Cardigan Mohair Edition from PetiteKnit. With this yarn option, the jacket is knitted in 3 strands Lace mohair/silk. Unfortunately, we do not have the rights to sell the pattern, but you can find it here:
If you want to knit the cardigan longer than the pattern suggests, either on the body or the sleeves, you must go up a size.
The Sunday Cardigan – Mohair Edition is knit seamlessly from the top down, flat (back and forth) on circular needles. The yoke is knit in rib with integrated increases to give it a round shape. The body is knit in stockinette stitch and finished with a ribbed band. The sleeves are knit in the round in stockinette stitch, they are long and slightly puffed at the end.
The Sunday Cardigan – Mohair edition is designed to have approx. 15-20 cm [6-7¾ inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 15-20 cm [6-7¾ inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches].
The measurements for the finished garment are on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measure 93 cm [34¾ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size M. A size M cardigan has a bust circumference of 111 cm [43¾ inches] which in the given example would give you 18 cm [7 inches] of positive ease.

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.

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.
