With a fun and easy-to-knit Fair Isle dot-pattern and using 1 strand of Merino and 1 strand of Soft Silk Mohair held together throughout, Dot Sweater is the perfect project for playing with different color combinations and for using up some of your smaller amounts of leftover yarn.

Dot sweater is worked seamlessly top down in the round, beginning with a ribbed neckband, and continuing with neckline shaping using German short rows. You then start following the charts for the Fair Isle pattern as well as working raglan increases to the underarms. Sleeve stitches are then placed on hold to be worked after the body has been completed. Ribbed edges finish the body and the sleeves. The length of the body and sleeves can easily be adjusted. The Fair Isle pattern is charted only
