Lemon Claire is an oversized v-shaped cardigan with dropped shoulders and a high collar. It is knitted from the top down. 

The combination of ITO So Kosho (wool & cashmere) and ITO Sensai (silk & mohair) is superwarm. You could omit the ITO Sensai, if you do not like mohair or if you'd like a lighter version - in this case make sure that you still get gauge. You could change needle size to ITO No. 7 号 (4,2 mm), if you do not get gauge with ITO No. 6 号 (3,9 mm).
