Mohini is a front open cardigan in DK weight yarn with a seamless top down raglan construction. Stitches are cast on for the back, sleeves, and the two fronts, and the yoke is shaped with raglan increases. The sleeve stitches are separated and put on hold after the yoke is done. You’ll pick up these later and knit the sleeves in the round. The body is worked flat and features colorwork that uses the intarsia technique. Stitches for front band and collar are picked up in the end to knit a cozy ribbed shawl collar.
The cardigan is supposed to be worn with 4-10” of positive ease.
