A brisk, chilly day doesn’t have to mean bundling up -- you can still look lovely on a walk in the woods in this elegant pullover. Warmed by silk, merino, and mohair, you’re ready for leaf-peeping without a bulky outer layer.
The Cabrito Collection is an exploration of how a strand of our laceweight kid mohair yarn, Cabrito, paired with another yarn adds a layer of rich texture and velvety warmth.
Please note that the pattern stitch for yoke and cuff is in charted form only.
