This sweater is worked seamlessly from the neckline down.  The cast on is done with the main color for design detailing as well as to help keep the shape from stretching if the mohair were to be held alone.  The use of short rows to shape the neckline gives the sweater a precise fitting neck that will not drop off the shoulders.   All increases are done with a make 1 left increase. Sleeve stitches are put on a holder after separation and then picked up to knit the sleeves in the round. This sweater has a light and airy feeling, perfectly suited for summer evenings, or glammed up with sequined mohair for holiday wear.
