Stitch Studio by Nicole Cottage Comfort Mohair Sweater

Get wrapped up in this warm, earthy sweater. The thick top and fringed bottom give this comfy cardigan a stylish spin, perfect for any chilly occasion.

Use a gauge of 11 sts x 16 rows (4") in St st to knit a sweater that measures 30" (34", 38", 42", 46", 50", 54")” for a bust measurement & 22-½" (23-½", 24-½", 25-½", 26", 27", 27-½")” in length. (These roughly correspond with X-Small (Small, Medium, Large, 1X, 2X, 3X.) Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle.
