Pattern description from Interweave Knits, Winter 2007:
Liz Nields says, ‘Holding two strands of a laceweight mohair/silk blend together gives the Sweater Girl Pullover weightless, luxurious warmth.’ A classic shape and style feels fresh with an off-beat, effective yarn choice. The allover cabled rib can create body-conscious fit if left unstretched, or a relaxed, drapey fit if blocked thoroughly. Cables continue right up the edges of the garment for fully fashioned appeal. Crossing cables more frequently at hem and cuffs create a tighter, more fitted rib over the same number of stitches, creating shaping without decreases.

Finished Size: 37.5 (41, 44, 47.5, 51)“ bust circumference.

Yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Haze (70% kid mohair, 30% silk; 229 yd [209 m]/25 g): #632 hurricane (navy), 12 (13, 14, 15, 16) skeins. Yarn distributed by Westminster Fibers.

Needles: Size 6 (4 mm): straight. Size 4 (3.5 mm): straight and 24” circular (cir). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Cable needle (cn); stitch holder; removable marker or scrap yarn; tapestry needle.
