(Click an image to go to the pattern's Ravelry page)

Every Stitch Counts (Knit)

This customizable sweater features a cropped high/low hem and plenty of options for knitting to your preferred style. The boxy, oversized fit is comfortable and flattering. Pattern includes instructions to adjust the length, add patch pockets and two different options for finishing your neckline (cowl or crew). Choose to knit your sweater in one color or select a contrast color to knit the hem, sleeve cuffs, and pockets.

Sorrel (Knit)

Sorrel is knit top-down, seamlessly in the round using one strand of sock yarn held with one strand of mohair silk lace.
