The Cloud Nine Sweater is knit top down with raglan increases. It has a double collar and a fine line pattern on the body and sleeves.
For the rusty version I used two strands of WeAreKnitters’ Touch Me Mohair. For the dark grey version, I used one strand of Drops Air and one strand of Drops Kid Silk held together (I’ve used 5 skeins of Drops Air and 3 skeins of Drops Kid Silk for Size S). Only the version with WAK’s Mohair is tested.

Sizes: (intended to be worn with about 10cm of positive ease)

- 4-5 skeins TouchMeMohair or similar
(The sweater is knit with two strands of TouchMeMohair, so if you’re using a different wool keep in mind that it might also change the sweater’s appearance!)
