this rust colored mohair/acrylic yarn
was a birthday gift from tea (thanks tea! for the yarn
and for taking these pics)
and the moment i saw it i knew i want to knit a sweater from it
and, as i do not like being told what to do
i chose to freestyle it, instead of following a pattern
sweater is made in fingering weight yarn
(using 5mm needles instead of recommended 3mm)
it’s knitted from the bottom up, in round
and looks like a gigantic rectangle with small sleeves added to it
i’m not really into lace or cables
don’t mind knitting them, but they are not really my style
so i went for really simple design – knit stitch
with occasional rows of double wrap stitch
and usual 2×2 ribbing for hems
leggings are just another fake riding pants
variation of my favorite pattern from burda

1.3 balls of troitsk caress 50%mohair/50%acrylic yarn in rust color (1 ball is 100g, 430m)
5mm circular needles
for the leggings – 1m navy jersey suede, scrap of rust colored jeresy suede, 2cm wide elastic for the waist
