the hotline sweater

Wednesday, January 03, 2018

I was beyond thrilled when Libby text me from school and asked me to make her the Hotline Sweater from Wool And The Gang.
I tried to get it finished for Christmas... however, did not quite make it.  The knitting was finished but I still had to seam it together.  A day late was worth the wait for Libby.  She absolutely LOVES it.
If you have never worked with Mohair, it can be a little fussy.  Nothing where I would feel the need to discourage anyone from knitting with it.   It's just a little different than working with wool or cotton or any other yarn with a smooth finish.  Since it's a little fuzzy it just seems to stick a little.
The finished project is well worth it.  I think this would be the perfect project for a beginner sweater knitter.  And it certainly is a fun project for every knitter.

Pattern:  The Hotline Sweater
Yarn:  Take Care Mohair in misty mauve
Needle size:  size 11
Size: 1

If you are experiencing these amazing cold temperatures as we are, I hope you have your knitting and a cozy blanket to keep you warm.  I truly just want to knit all day!

  1. Lovely. Beautiful colour. I have been knitting up your toast pattern with Alpaca and Shibui silk cloud. Like you said it can be a bit fussy but I’m addicted with the end result.
