Casia Sweater Mohair Only english version
Casia Sweater Mohair Only is a short and feminine sweater with 3⁄4 length puff sleeves. The sweater does not need any final sewing despite the puff sleeves, as they are shaped with the help of in- and decreases. The sweater is knit top down, so you can easily adjust the length at both the body and sleeves while knitting. By knitting short rows, the neck line is slightly higher at the back. This sweater is supposed to be worn with an approx. 5- 10 cm positive ease. If your bust measurement is 84 cm, you should choose a size XS.

The sweater is knit in stockinette stitch in the round on needle 4 mm (40 and 60-80 cm), with double thread mohair. All ribbed hems are knit on circular needle 3 mm (40 and 80 cm). I recommend interchangeable circular needles.
