2-in-1 pattern that provides two complete patterns for two versions – Mohair Flor and the original La Flor – of the sweater which allows you to knit the pattern at different gauges and with different design details. By purchasing Mohair Flor, you will automatically get the original La Flor file too.
Mohair Flor is the updated version of the original pattern. It is shaped the same way as the original one – seamless bottom up sweater with the added split hem and with the modified drop shoulder sleeves knit in the round top down.
Because of the nature of the pattern, you can easily modify the length of both the body and the sleeves of the sweater.
There is more simplified sleeves shaping – there are less decreases in order to have a slightly wider sleeve cuff and I omitted all the edge trimming – leaving the raw bind off edges for a more casual and cozy look.
One of the modification made to the original pattern is the neckline – in Mohair Flor I left it more open with the minimum shaping to create a wide boatneck, trimmed with an i-cord which, if desired can be also worn off the shoulder.
