Sally Sweater is a simple top-down staple sweater featuring wide stripes and an elegant shoulder construction. It is worked with 1 strand of Heavy Merino + 1 strand of Soft Silk Mohair held together throughout, or alternatively, 2 strands of Merino + 1 strand of Soft Silk Mohair, or 4 strands Soft Silk Mohair.
You begin working the neck and shoulders back and forth in stockinette stitch before joining work and continuing in the round. Sleeves are worked in the round from the top down. Sally Sweater is finished with ribbed edges on body and sleeves, and a folded ribbed neckband.

To choose the correct size, look at the ‘to fit chest circumference’ measurements. If your actual chest circumference is, say, 98 cm [38½”], you should choose to knit a size M in order to achieve the intended fit.

Yarn alternatives: 

For a light and summery version of Sally Sweater, the sweater can be worked with 2 strands of Soft Silk Mohair. It is worked with the same needle sizes and knitting gauge as noted in the above description.
Yarn consumption is as follows:

Color 1: 4 (4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5) balls
Color 2: 3 (4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4) balls 

As a further alternative, the sweater can be worked with 4 strands of Soft Silk Mohair for a chunkier, but at the same time light sweater.  Needle sizes and gauge remain the same as before, and the yarn consumption is the double of the indicated yarn consumption when working with 2 strands of Soft Silk Mohair.
