N1139 Box Pleat Cardigan

Mohair is a special taste. Lustrous and durable, we adore the fibre. But even mohair doubters will fall for this beautiful, simple, becoming cardigan. The box pleat at the back gives it an extra roominess (and curious formality) that many women will appreciate; it slims both the hips and upper body. Melanson keeps the directions very simple and full of elegant touches. Any decreases/increases are done in from the edge for a good selvage stitch seam, and the upper back and fronts are worked in moss stitch to match the collar, cuffs, hem, and buttonbands.
