The book was issued as a promotion for four of the Bernat blended yarns that had been introduced
over the three previous years - Mohairspun, Mohairlaine, Astrakhan and Mohair Plus. You know, go to the yarn shop, see a pattern you love in the book and buy the yarn.
Another coat, or perhaps long sweater that would be so perfect for casual wear. The dress, you should take a look at the back buttons!
The two piece dress has 'that touch' of class that never goes out of style, and the dress on the right has that nice, but so comfy appeal - wear it anywhere.
"Mothers" jacket is soft and alluring with a bit of that nubby texture, and 'daughters' cardigan sweater is perfect for cool day wear.
Just a bit more of that nubby mohair texture here from the Astrakhan. Two cardigan styles, one patterned, one plain, both, I'm sure, a pleasure to wear.
Now, 'her' dress is a an ultra easy raglan delight (you'd want to make two) and that jacket on young girl ... it's a fashionista in grooming desirable.
And last, but certainly not least, gracing the back cover - the classic long sweater coat and the fun plaid with fringed edges and corresponding stovepipe hat.
Now, Bernat, being The Grand Promoter went one step further with The Mohair Collection - Yarn and Pattern Book, and had paid 'professional knitters' in major markets across the country to stage fashion shows and ... of course ... sell the yarn.
And, that's it ! Bernat Book 118 - The Mohair Collection. Although not all, I've entered a number of these patterns in the shop, should you care to look.
I hope you enjoyed the book review; thanks for dropping by.
