This cardigan was designed in Rowan Lane Fibres Repose (437 yards/400 meters/100g), a fingering weight 50% corriedale/50% mohair blend with a loose ply and subtle halo. This yarn at the pattern gauge makes for a relatively loose fabric, but the halo from the mohair fills in the space between stitches and the corriedale gives this otherwise airy fabric structure and hold.
