Don’t be frightened of knitting with mohair! Debbie Bliss Angel is a gorgeous combo of mohair and silk, which makes for a blissfully soft yarn. The halo here brings an ethereal quality to a sweet lace motif around the yoke, and all the ribbing is out of the way early on, because Aspen is knitted in the round from the bottom up! Knitted here in White 1, as part of the Winter Whites collection, the motif shines out - but there are some glorious jewel shades in Angel, if you feel like knitting this sweater in another colour.
