neutrals and texture

Last week I saw a sweater in a window
that triggered my imagination.
...And it was a potential stash busting, too!

Got home, and explored my stash, 
where I found all I needed 
(why am I not surprised?!!?).

I love the two neutral tones mixed together, the texture, the idea of super warm in a cold winter day.

Best thing of DIY: you can change things up to suit your preferences! I LOVE high turtle necks, and this sweater is so heavy and warm (and not itchy) that a turtle neck was very much needed!

This is what I used: (all leftovers!)

I used:
* needles 3.5 mm for the 2:2 ribs on the wrist, waist and collar
* needles 4 mm for the stockinette on the back and sleeves
* needles 10 mm for the seed stitch on the front

And, in case you want to make one for yourself, here's the pattern for the raglan sleeve sweater:
I didn't put the number of stitches because need to be adjusted with whatever yarn you'll be using.
The measurement in the pattern would be for a size 2.
