Poolaknits Weekender-sweater is an airy, v-neck shaped mohair sweater, with stripes knitted out of sequin yarn. You can also knit the sweater with another yarn or leave the stripes out completely – just remember to note this when calculating the yarn usage. The mohair is knitted with two strands held in together, which will give the sweater a light and soft finish accompanied with the festive stripes. The Weekender sweater is knitted top down, and it has the European shoulder design to give the knit the perfect fit. You will start by knitting the back part, after which you pick up stitches for your front part and form the v-neck with increases. The front and back parts are then joined in the round. The hem is finished with an i-cord edging. You will pick up your sleeve stitches from the armholes and finish the sleeves again with a beautiful and timeless i-cord finish.
