Intermediate rating. Can substitute a bulky mohair yarn.

From Knitting Today’s Classics: “Given that mohair is the most classic of fibers for handknitting, what could be more useful than a cabled mohair cardigan with jacket detailing? Elegantly shaped with set-in sleeves and a shawl collar, this jacket has pockets at the side seams. The sleeves are set into the jacket with enough ease at the shoulders to fit comfortably over a loose blouse or turtleneck.”

SIZES: Small (Medium, Large, Extra Large).
