Please offer your suggestions.

I'm lovin' Jenna Adorno's Ultra Femme sweater (http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_3613634,00.html) featured on Knitty Gritty and in SnB Nation. But since it's a short sleeved I'd really like to wear it more in the summer. Will the mohair it calls for - GGH Soft Kid - be too warm?

What if I went ahead and knit the entire sweater in the Rowan All Seasons Cotton that it calls for? Would the cotton be too heavy to provide the nice shaping like the mohair does?

Thanks for your input!

I haven't knit with either fiber before, and I am a little concerned that the mohair might be itchy, since I've never been able to comfortably wear a fuzzy sweater.
