I originally conceived of this design as a summer cardigan to go over a sundress or tank top, giving myself the challenge of figuring out how to make a top down saddle shoulder sleeve in lace. But I have been particularly inspired by the recent resurgence in the popularity of mohair, and this pattern struck me as a perfect vehicle for a carry-along strand of laceweight mohair with a sock yarn to make what started out as a summer sweater into a multi-season garment.
