Note in the yarn. I found this yarn and got it for color only to match my skirt. This yarn turned out to be adorable. It feels like you are knitting a kitty: so soft and slightly less fluffy than 100% mohair. For people that are looking for yarn with less fuzzy/ hallo around garment, this is your yarn then! I also picked this pattern because it matches the yarn texture.
Top. Bottom up, in rounds to the armholes, then flat upto the neckline, 10 reps wide on US 8. Collar was made out of picked up sts around the neck on US 8 but not connected and were knitted flat. Each side has 7” long cast on sts, so it could be tied later in the bow.
Sleeves. Sleeves are knitted separately, flat, 4 reps wide, increased to 5 reps, finished with 2x2 ribbed cuffs on US 3.
