Novita X Iines DIY: Cotton Cloud Sweater

This easy top-down jumper is an ideal project for beginners as there are no seams to sew up. The jumper is knit with two different types of yarn. Novita Isoveli brings softness and warmth, while the Novita Tuuli mohair adds a sumptuously fluffy feel. If you would like to make your jumper extra fluffy, you can add more mohair. If you do add an extra strand to your knit, remember to check the yardage (total yarn needed). You should also bear in mind that additional strands will affect the gauge.
