Novice Cardigan by Petite knits

Novice Cardigan is a top down cardigan with a circular yoke.

Novice is knitted with mohair and another yarn held together.  We’ve done some swatching and found that one strand of our Cheviot Marsh lambswool 4ply held together with one strand of our Yeavering Bell mohair DK meets the gauge of the pattern and creates a lovely lofty fabric with a halo of mohair. Soft and gorgeous. Choose two colours that compliment each other and get ready to snuggle in your new favourite knit.
