Notes

Modifications
Gauge off, so knitted a S to achieve measurements of an M.
Knitted 10 rows of 1 x 1 ribbing for neckline.
Knit raglan increases following pattern.
Created aline shape by increasing on each side every 24 rows 4 times as with the raglan increases (M1R knit 6 M1L)
Knit to 34 cm then 10 rows of 1 x 1 ribbing at the hem.
Sleeves, knit 28 rows (10 cm) then decreased as in pattern, knit to 40 cm, then 10 rows 1 x 1 ribbing.

I cannot explain why I used more Silk Mohair than Tweed, except when I weighed my remaining skeins the Silk Mohair was exactly 25g while the Tweed was 103g; still doesn’t add up but there you go.
