twisting in the Mohair saves a lot of untwisting.

Join the center back, all with matching thread! , ready
to be sewn onto the jumper later.
Work away all threads, Blocking should be done dry.
Sew the shoulder seams together. Put in the sleeves.
Sew sleeve and side seams together.
I have brushed the Mohair with a Mascara brush.
You can also use a old very soft toothbrush.
Brush it very lightly one way, than come back
again the opposite way till a nice effect has been
achieved .Sew the collar into position.
