I round up some yarns of similar weight with colours that play nice together:
I’m thinking of starting Remnant Stripe Cardigan, a pattern by Boadicea Binnerts:
I like the long sleeves and the collar! The collar solves any problems with not-perfect-gauge or fit and sits nice and high in the neck. I’d knit it in one colour, a solid dark blue.
I like the closing with the button too. It’s a free pattern. What’s not to like?
Well, it has raglan shoulders. That I don’t like. But since it’s bottom up I can change that to my standard set-in sleeve method.
Now I’m just a bit unsure about using single plied yarns in this… a bit unsure that might pill too much when wearing… But I might step over my doubts because I want to cast on. Now!
