From ‘Jean Frost Jackets’: So many knitters are afraid to combine yarns of different kinds or weights. Here, I combine two very different yarns, linen and mohair, in a slip-stitch pattern to create an interesting fabric. This combination has become one of my favorites. The style is Chanel with a stockinette border and pockets for interest.
