Aamu (Morning in Finnish) is inspired by the cold and sunny winter mornings in Finland. The union of mohair and cotton represents the beauty of this contrast.

Aamu is knitted double stranded. One strand is Kid Mohair with Silk and the other strand is Cotton.
Yarn alternatives: DK or Worsted weight yarn, preferably alpaca blends. Or double stranded, for example mohair and fingering weight wool.

Aamu-sweater is worked seamlessly and in the round from the top down. This basic sweater has special raglan sleeve set and diagonal details on sides of the body. Extra rows are added to back to shape the neckline. The sleeves and the body are separated and worked top to bottom. The sweater features decorative lace pattern along the sleeves.
