The Javi sweater gives the knitter a chance to play with color, which some crafters find exciting and others find a little scary--combining colors can be daunting.
I knit the original sample in a collection of greens I thought really popped against the neutral beige (Oyster Heather). I encourage you to experiment to find your perfect color combo for this piece.
But just in case you're a knitter who gets stomach butterflies when considering color options, here are a few more combos you might consider:
Sapphire Heather, Baltic Heather and Wonderland Heather
Chocolate, Chestnut and Camel Heather
Saffron, Pumpkin and Mai Tai Heather
Hollyberry, Rouge and Blossom Heather
Blackberry, Amethyst Heather and Haze Heather
For all of these options, Oyster Heather makes a fine neutral, but you might also consider Dove Heather, or plain old White.
Or change things up--use neutrals for the colorblocks and something fun and bright for the main color. Or pair a color changing yarn with a solid color. Really, the possibilities are endless--and exciting!
And now, something even more exciting! A giveaway!
