sweater no.1
by mokosha Follow

rust colored 50%mohair/50%acrylic yarn (caress by troitsk)

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 2x2 ribbing for hems
leggings are just another fake riding pants
variation of my favorite pattern from burda

    love this! i hate following patterns too, like to just kind of see where the knitting takes you.
