Love Note - by Tin Can Knits



This sweet little sweater knits up quickly from the top down. The combination of mohair lace and single-ply merino creates a fabric that is floaty, soft and sensual. With a high-low hemline and two length options, what’s not to love?

Pattern Info

Sizing
0-6 mo (6-12 mo, 1-2 yrs, 2-4 yrs, 4-6 yrs, 6-8 yrs, 8-10 yrs, Adult XS, S, M, L, XL-XXL, 3XL-4XL)

Finished Chest Measurement: 24.5 (25.5, 26.5, 28.6, 30.5, 32.5, 34.5, 38.5, 41.5, 44.5, 48.5, 56.5, 66.5)

Yarn
We recommend using a blend of fingering yarn + mohair lace weight, but if you substitute we suggest using a DK weight yarn.

Sock or fingering weight yarn held with lace weight mohair yarn - yardage given is for COMBINED yarn; so if your size calls for 600 yds, it requires 600 yds of the sock weight yarn, plus 600 yds of lace weight mohair yarn.

Cropped length: 200 (220, 240, 300, 350, 400, 450, 550, 600, 650, 750, 900, 1100) yards

Regular length: 225 (250, 300, 350, 400, 450, 500, 600, 650, 750, 850, 1050, 1250) yards

(Samples shown in La Bien Aimée Merino Singles in ‘rust’ with La Bien Aimée Mohair Silk in ‘undergrowth’, and Rainbow Heirloom Solo Light in ‘driftwood’ with Rainbow Heirloom Kidsilk Cloud in ‘sweet dreams’.)

We suggest choosing a size with between 4 and 12” positive ease relative to your chest measurement.
Nina is wearing a cropped size M (44.5”) with 7.5” positive ease.
Aimee is wearing a cropped size XL-XXL (56.5”) with 10” positive ease.
