The Turtleneck Dress #119 from BurdaStyle 08/2011, is one of my favorite patterns ever. It’s so flattering! I made these out of completely different fabrics but I’m unable to choose which one I like the best. The only change I made to the pattern was widen the skirt pannels.

For the first jumper I ever knitted, of course I had to make my life easier and choose a challenging pattern: a jumper in leaf pattern and ribbing, published in Woman and Home February 1950, that I got from Bex @ Subversive Femme.
The pattern allows for several sleeve lengths so I went with 3/4 sleeves. The neck band ended up being 46 inches long (instead of 36” as the pattern asks for) – I felt I needed the extra length to tie a pretty bow.
