Love Note Sweater Pattern by Tin Can Knits

By Tin Can Knits

This sweet little sweater knits up quickly from the top down. The combination of mohair lace and single-ply merino creates a fabric that is floaty, soft and sensual. With a high-low hemline and two length options, what’s not to love?

Sizing
0-6 mo (6-12 mo, 1-2 yrs, 2-4 yrs, 4-6 yrs, 6-8 yrs, 8-10 yrs, Adult XS, S, M, L, XL-XXL, 3XL-4XL, 5XL)

Yarn
We recommend using a blend of fingering yarn + mohair lace weight, but if you substitute we suggest using a DK weight yarn.

Sock or fingering weight yarn held with lace weight mohair yarn - yardage given is for COMBINED yarn; so if your size calls for 600 yds, it requires 600 yds of the sock weight yarn, plus 600 yds of lace weight mohair yarn.

Cropped length: 200 (220, 240, 300, 350, 400, 450, 550, 600, 650, 750, 900, 1100, 1300) yards

Regular length: 225 (250, 300, 350, 400, 450, 500, 600, 650, 750, 850, 1050, 1250, 1450) yards

We suggest choosing a size with between 4 and 12” positive ease relative to your chest measurement.

16 sts & 24 rounds / 4” in stockinette using larger needles
