I knitted this for my son. It has a big shawl collar. The pattern is available from Ravelry. It suggests using double knit yarn, holding double strands of wool. I used chunky yarn which was a cotton/wool mix, making it both lightweight and cosy. The pattern is titled 'Boy meets Purl'
Made small pouch for my iPhone and lipstick. (Never any pockets when you wear a dress!) started with mini granny squares, added a knitted mosaic panel, then lined with Russian Doll fabric. A bit of Bohemian chic I thought!
Made this sweater with wool by James C Brett. It is a self colour yarn, called Woodlander, shade L9. I love the muted shades. The pattern is free http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/easy-weekend-pullover I bought the wool at the Knitting and Stitching show at Ally Pally.
