To knit the blouse you need 200/200/225/225/250g* of Silk Mohair from Ladybug Yarn 420m/50g using two strands held together. The cardigan on the photo is knitted in one strand of the color Keshi together with one strand of the color Vanilla sky. You can use the same amount of any other Silk Mohair with the same length, e.g. soft silk mohair from Knitting for Olive 225m/25g, Silkhair from Lana Grossa 210m/25g or Kidsilk from Drops 210m/25g.

Of course, you can choose any other yarn as long as you obtain the right gauge. As a mohair free alternative for example the Midnatsol from Camarose works too.
Amount of yarn needed for long sleeves

You need 6-7 buttons for the body and 6 for the cuffs of the sleeves (2 times 3). The Cardigan on the photos above has 12 mm buttons for both body and cuffs, yet you can also use 15 mm buttons for the body and 12 mm buttons for the cuffs. Buttonholes are knitted after finishing the cardigan so you can choose the dedicated size accordingly after at the end.
