DIY knit sweater

camelsweatermood1
I have never been a big knit person until I spotted this big bulky knit at Mood Fabrics in NY.  It’s simply AMAZING.  The moment I picked it up I envisioned an oversized sweater with pockets.  Everything about this fabric is perfect.  The outside is a mustard like color and the inside is a greenish grey wool which peeks out between the knit.  When I purchased this fabric I was the first one to open the bolt so I’m sure they have plenty left.  If wool bothers you, you will definitely need to line this one because it is quite itchy.

I didn’t use a pattern for this sweater and just draped it for mine and Chandler’s.  I’m sure any sweater pattern would work, I would just cut it a size or two too large.
