DETAILS
Pink fizz combines a mohair halo with beautiful lace and a relaxed fit that leaves you feeling a little bit glamorous and totally cozy! Knit from the bottom up and seamlessly except for the underarms, this sweater showcases a drop shoulder style with positive ease in the body and slim-fit sleeves. The lace pattern makes this sweater more advanced, please see below for a list of techniques used in this pattern.

YARN REQUIREMENTS
These are just approximations. Total yarn usage will depend on the yarn you use (fiber content, ply, etc.), your personal gauge, and any modifications you may make.

1067 (1205, 1345, 1475, 1668)(1775, 1892, 2028, 2176) yds
975 (1102, 1230, 1349, 1525)(1623, 1731, 1855, 1990) m

This sweater is knit holding a strand of each yarn together. The combination of the fingering weight yarn and lace weight yarn is approx. equivalent to one strand of sport weight yarn. If substituting one strand of sport weight yarn, yardages will vary. You will need approx. 310 (350, 390, 430, 485)(515, 555, 590, 635) g/1155 (1305, 1460, 1600, 1810)(1925, 2070, 2200, 2360) yds/1057 (1195, 1333, 1462, 1653)(1760, 1890, 2011, 2158) m

SUGGESTED YARN
For this sweater I chose a merino yarn blended with cashmere for the warmth, softness and drape and held it together with a strand of mohair silk to add strength and a gorgeous halo.

La Bien Aimee (hold 1 strand of each yarn together)
Cashmerino (100 g/473 yd/433 m) - 3 (3, 3, 4, 4)(4, 4, 5, 5) skeins Damask
Mohair Silk (50 g/547 yd/500 m) - 2 (2, 3, 3, 3)(3, 4, 4, 4) skeins Highgarden
